Another holiday season has come and gone, so now let us all take a great sigh of relief, and for making it through in one piece, treat ourselves to an elegantly prepared meal from one of Smith Mountain Lake’s premier places to dine, The Landing Restaurant.

After a season built upon gastronomic overindulgence, celebrating with food may seem counterintuitive; especially since for so many of us, spring training begins in January. But The Landing Restaurant, and her sister, Bruno’s Gastropub, don’t serve up the kind of greasy stuff that tends to cling to our waistlines. Here, only the finest fare is to be had.  And while it’s true that if you’re really counting calories it may be best to avoid the Kobe Beef Burgers and Duck Fat Pommes Frites, a Roasted Golden and Red Beet Salad never (served with a balsamic vinaigrette and warm goat cheese pearls) has never harmed a figure.
