Dinner Menu: September 10-12, 2015

Thanks for coming and checking this blog out. It is not always easy to find the time, but it does help to take a step back and see the big picture. We are here because we love to think up and prepare awesome dishes. Tonight the chef highly recommends the salmon dish: fingerlings, romano, beans, and roasted peppers topped with pan roasted salmon. Good so far! But then we added a corn flan and a chimichurri sauce. Out of the park!  I said good day, sir.

Lunch Menu: Week of November 4, 2014

ONLY TWO WEEKS LEFT!

What? I know, that’s what I’m saying. How is that possible that we have come to the end of another season?

I have loved thinking and planning and cooking for you all for these last several years. I am grateful that you still want to come and sample what we are cooking/experimenting with. Italy has become a welcome and comfortable inspiration to our menus and plating style. Mille grazie a tutti. We will spend all winter practicing and researching new pastas for next year!

For now come and try some of our comfort food for the cool weather.
