So Lucky – A Lovely Lunch at the Bavarian Inn


By Tuesday Super Storm Sandy had done its damage in the lower mid-Atlantic states.  In Harpers Ferry the biggest effect was a loss of business as the National Historic Park remained closed (it had closed on Monday).  With the park closed, all of the businesses in the historic district of Harpers Ferry decided to stay shuttered as well, leaving us without any restaurant options.  After an amazing breakfast of a stack of pancakes with fruit and a side of sausage, we didn’t start thinking about lunch until the afternoon.  I started calling restaurants in neighboring towns and on my fourth try I reached the Bavarian Inn in nearby Sheperdstown.  A long-standing semi-famous inn and restaurant, we felt so lucky to get to dine there.  With only three tables occupied in the entire large dining room, we sat by the window with a view of the Potomac River.  Truly a delightful meal.
