Last Sunday Mom told me that we were going to lunch at the SAVOY!!  I was ecstatic!  I had never been to London before!  WOW!  I couldn’t wait to rub elbows with the royals and aristocrats, whine and dine at ol’ Churchill’s former stomping grounds!

Well, turns out that it was not THAT Savoy Mom was referring to, but rather Savoy de Mesilla ( here in the LC.  Imagine my disappointment!

Dad called ahead to make sure that us doggies would be welcome on the patio.  The hostess said ‘no problem’, so off we went.  We were seated promptly in the small but elegant outdoor covered and nicely shaded patio…IMG_00000224

And the waitress took Mom and Dad’s drink order.  A Cranberry Mimosa for Mom and a Monk’s Ale Brew for Dad. The drinks were served along with slices of warm artisan sourdough and walnut raisin bread with a signature green chile butter spread…IMG_00000230

They ordered the Aligator Bites for appetizer…IMG_00000231

Dad ordered the Savoy Stuffed Burger seasoned with garlic, basil, and sun dried tomatoes (have you noticed that Dad seems to like his burgers quite a bit?)…IMG_00000238

While Mom ordered the Savoy Gourmet Mac and Cheese that included grilled chicken, tomatoes, and green chile…IMG_00000235

She also FAILED to order me and Butthead a side of grilled chicken breast!  Even worse, I just learned that they have grilled SALMON that she could have ordered for me instead!  I’m gonna have to have a serious talk with that woman. This is my “I am not amused” face…IMG_00000239

Anyway, Mom and Dad said the food was absolutely excellent.  In fact they finished every last morsel, there was hardly even any mayonnaise left for me to try and steal off the table…IMG_00000241

Dad says that they may not be the biggest, but the burgers at the Savoy are definitely the best in the LC.  While the food and service were fantastic for the peeps and us pups were welcomed on the patio we were overlooked a little bit in the hydration department.  Luckily, Mom almost never goes anywhere without my portable Snoopy water bowl and she filled it up with her ice water.

So, Savoy de Mesilla gets a 3.5+ PAW Walter PUPproval rating for dog friendliness.  I’m definitely going to make Mom and Dad take me back there for that SALMON!
