Intermission is Closing

Starting the week of October 30 we will be OPEN Friday & Saturday nights at 5 pm. (Closed Sunday – Thursday)
Let’s plan your Holiday, Year-end, Employee, Customer, & etc….gathering here at Intermission!
Yes, we are closing Intermission the end of the year and not reopening the spring of 2017.  So…..if you have a gift certificate for Intermission this will be the last opportunity to use it, even if it is ‘expired’.
This has been an amazing experience creating and running Intermission since 2012!  Thank you for your support and encouragement throughout our 22 years in the area.
We are not sure what is next for us but it is time to look forward to the next adventure, whatever that may be. Dave will probably always cook; it’s what he loves!  And…After all ‘that man can cook’!

It’s time to plan your 2016 Holiday Party!

Real Bites – Intermission

A Perfect Combination Surely, you’ve been to the Commonweal Theatre in Lanesboro before. If you haven’t, you really should check it out.

And, before a 7:00 p.m. show at the Commonweal, you’ll want to book a dinner reservation at Intermission — adjoined at the hip with the theatre.

David and Nancy Harrison, a husband and wife team of owners, share a passion for providing the ultimate dining experience. On the evening of Friday, April 5, 2013, just one day after they opened up for the season, we made reservations to take the kids out for dinner. Landon had just lost his first tooth, ready for a visit from the Tooth Fairy, and it was time to celebrate!

Now, I have conservatively held back from taking our children, ages six and eight, out for dinner at such a fine dining establishment. Since restaurants like Intermission are embodied with a quiet ambiance, sophistication and class, I didn’t want for my children to act like they do at McDonald’s and attract unwanted stares.

Children can get bored at church, restaurants, board games, and just about anything, so you need to keep them busy and entertained.

Fortunately, our children were on their best behavior the night we visited Intermission. While all of the other restaurant tables were full of doting couples, we took up every seat with our family of four.

The children ordered their favorite dish of noodles covered with butter, while Amanda and I took this moment to enjoy the finer things in life.

Amanda ordered the Grilled Atlantic Salmon with maple crème fraiche, served with a wild rice blend and sautéed fresh vegetables. Meanwhile, I was hungry for steak, but not just any steak. I ordered the Grilled New York Strip with bleu cheese butter, served with garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed fresh vegetables. While we waited for our food, we talked about how our day went, including anything interesting that happened at school that day. It was a nice round table family discussion, but in a much fancier setting.

When our food arrived it was a work-of-art, a true masterpiece. Thanks to chef David Harrison for a wonderful meal.

We go to the same church, Christ Lutheran in Preston, as David and Nancy Harrison along with their sons. Throughout the year, the Harrisons have hosted fine dining experiences for the church with David in the kitchen preparing enough meals to feed a congregation. Unfortunately, our schedule has always conflicted with attending these wonderful dinners.

Based on our wonderful meal at Intermission in recent weeks, it looks like we’ve been missing out on outstanding dinners. Next time, I’m sure we’ll clear our calendar.

If you are looking for the perfect combination of ambiance and a fine dining experience, you’ll have to stop by Intermission on your way to the Commonweal Theatre. But, please make sure you call for a reservation at 507-467-3381. Otherwise, you may be waiting a while.
