We were on our way to The Docks for some riverfront dining when our car started making a strange sound. We pulled into the drive for the Crowne Plaza Hotel and D. rang up AAA. We were told it would be a bit of a wait, so we let the hotel valet know of our predicament, inquired about the hotel restaurant, and enjoyed our first visit to Del Sol. We found a table on the patio and ordered a few drinks… because we weren’t driving home!
The view was great considering we hadn’t eaten a nice dinner on the river facing in this direction before (opposite of The Docks). But the food was the best surprise. My pumpkin (or was it butternut squash?) ravioli with a beurre blanc and sage was wonderful and D.’s fish on latin-style spicy black beans gave him a smile. So much so that we forgot all about our car mishap. Thanks to AAA for coming to get the car and giving us the time to discover something new in Toledo. Also, thanks to Black & White cab for the prompt pick-up.
See? Even a car breakdown in Toledo can be turned into a pleasant evening!
