For me, visual presentation can change everything. When my husband ordered a burger and fries, I never expected the meal to be presented in such a beautiful way. The white bowl, holding the french fries, was a simple addition to how they served the meal, but it made quite and impact. Call me silly, but something so simple caught my attention. That said, I ended up going home to find a similar style vessel. Not only do I think I found something similar, but the Sur la Table white lion crock / bowl looks like I found the exact item. If you like the look too, I posted the link below.
I will be returning to the Rangeley Inn's tavern soon and I will need to confirm how well I did with finding a "similar" item.
