Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
My friend and I didn’t stay in town but headed for Port Huron and a word-inspiring restaurant – The Raven.
As their website says: “real brick, lavish hardwoods, unique golden faux paint art deco walls, retro poster prints and counter, wall-panel human interest illustrations, stained glass windows, tiffany lighting and a library of over 8000 antique and contemporary books.”
Of course, you can’t go wrong eating among books.
The building dates back to the Civil War and the books and literary memorabilia are crammed in every corner. Our table had a portrait of Tennessee Williams.
We bought two appetizers: bruschetta and a veggie tray – both were very good and a great not-too-filling lunch.
Fun experience. I would recommend it highly if you ever get to Port Huron – it’s about two blocks from the marina.
