This morning’s interview with UpNorthLive. Work is underway, but there is still a long way to go. It’s been a very long winter and we’re so grateful to have progress. Thank you again to everyone pulling for the Riv. We can’t wait to see it back up and running again.

On October 19th a devastating fire destroyed our kitchen, the guest rooms above and created extensive smoke damage throughout the restaurant and Inn forcing us to close our doors indefinitely (our goal is early summer 2019).

A Thanksgiving message from Kate

It is the day after Thanksgiving, and I have such a full heart. These last few weeks, since the fire, have been very difficult. As many of you know, I am not a patient person. So, working with the insurance agency, adjusters, engineers, industrial hygienists, the state of Michigan liquor control board have been testing me in many ways. I have also missed my staff so much. They are like family to me, and not being with them has been so difficult. We laugh a lot at The Riv – and I have missed that. And I have missed my friends and clients. So many people that walk through that front door are really good friends, people that we love to see and hear about their lives. I have always felt The Riv was a part of the fabric of this wonderful little community, but I have never felt that more than right now. My heart is so full from all the people giving me support, either much needed advice, shoulders to cry on, help on the Santa Brunch, or now – the Go Fund Me page that Linda set up. I am just floored by the generosity of this community. I don’t know how I can thank everyone, so know that you are in my heart. There have been lots of tears of gratitude.

We will rebuild, and as quickly as we can. I am so grateful for the amazing team that I have and for the community of which we are a part. I am finding the blessings, and my heart is full. Happy Thanksgiving.

Thanks to the generosity of The Old Art Building who will be lending us the space, Trish's Dishes & Village Cheese Shanty their ovens, The Bluebird Restaurant & Tavern their dishes and dishwashing facilities and Beau Webb of MI Market Suttons Bay his jolly Santa persona we are happy to announce that we will be hosting our annual Santa Brunch December 16th.

MENU:

From here the Inn looks quiet and still, but inside there is a flurry of activity with meeting after meeting to determine what needs to be done to bring us back to life. Yesterday we learned that the smoke damage is bad enough in the restaurant bathrooms and throughout the rooms upstairs that most areas must be stripped to the studs and renovated. We also learned that our entire wine cellar consisting of thousands of bottles of painstakingly selected wines must be destroyed and we will have to start from scratch in the spring. Most days we’re tackling this head on and matter of factly, but the wine cellar hurts. It’s been a labor of love for over 20 years and we’re heartbroken over the loss.

On the upside, the The Old Art Building has generously offered their space so we can hold our annual Santa Brunch on December 16th with Trish’s Dishes & Village Cheese Shanty offering their ovens, and The Bluebird Restaurant & Tavern their dishes and dishwashing facilities so we can pull it off. More details on this once our computer returns from EPS where it’s being restored due to smoke damage and we can contact everyone who already had reservations. Thank you for your continued support. We feel it and appreciate it more than you know. #riversiderebuild

This sweet, firm squash hybrid is named after our Chef Peter Siagkris and former Chef Fitzke-Loll. Delicious on the tongue and easy on the eyes. Listen for it in our specials over the next few weeks.

It’s not fall without pumpkin, and this creamy, spicy pumpkin pudding from Chef Aileen is some of the best we’ve ever tasted. Clove, nutmeg & cardamom roasted pepitas and a ginger lace cookie add a bit of texture and crunch to round out this perfect Autumn dessert.

Suggested pairing : Buffalo Trace Bourbon or a nice tawny port.
