Chefs night out

A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of dining al fresco, over looking rolling hills, under twinkling stars with a warm seat next to a Mediterranean outdoor pizza oven. 
Where did I go?

Well, with a suggestion from our good friend Ellen Sackett we took a little drive up North near Muenster to Saint Jo. About an hour away. 

The drive is to be expected, nothing great until you turn West onto highway 82. The view becomes increasingly better when you head away from 35. Then suddenly about a mile outside of Saint Jo. The scene opens up to one spectacular vista at the top of a hill. You can see a grand view of the Red River Valley. SO gorgeous. 

Ancient ovens sits just off Childress road in Saint Jo. Its a sumptuous meal with five courses of hearth baked goodness that is rarely found and enjoyed in such a setting.

I encourage you to go and remember its BYOB. We brought champagne and flutes for our dinner and it was a perfect crisp addition to our meal. Also, bring cash, about 20 per person not including tip.

Seating is limited and must be planned ahead. Their reservations/calender fill up fast, so call Dennis and tell him I sent you, he loves to know all about his customers.
