|Wyit Sprowls Bridge|
My Valentine's Day was an amazing accident. Cohort and I decided on a driving tour of covered bridges in Washington County. With the snow storm that came through it looked like a scene straight from a movie. It was beautiful...until we got stuck in the snow....in a toy rental car....on an unmarked road. We tried everything to get free, but the toy car would not budge. Cohort bundled up and walked to the nearest house. He returned with a local man, a large truck and a dog named Sam. After a quick tow, we joined him in his workshop to warm up, have a beer and then we hit the road. I've traveled the world and can attest that you just can't beat Pennsylvania hospitality! We decided to forgo the rest of the covered bridge tour and head home. Cohort spotted a place to pull over for a rest stop and a quick drink. Roland's Trattoria. A family owned neighborhood restaurant in Washington, Pa. The dining area was crowded with Valentine's Day reservations, but we snagged 2 seats at the bar. The staff was extremely friendly, even with the holiday rush. We ordered drinks and reviewed the special Valentine menu. Cohort ordered the Veal Oscar while I ordered the Scallops with asparagus. The scallops were topped with roasted tomatoes, wrapped in prosciutto and also covered in bearnaise.

PROS: I love a good, old school, family owned restaurant! Their Facebook page has daily specials listed.
CONS: They only had the special Valentine's Day menu, so choices were limited.
