Alaskan Halibut with Morels, Bison with Roquefort Sauce – Specials July 16-17
We found out today that, once again, we were honored with a Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence for 2010. We continue to be the FIRST and ONLY restaurant in Kansas to be given the distinction. No need to travel to Kansas City, all the wines are right here in Manhattan!
We were lucky this week and scored some delicious Alaskan Halibut. I am bringing in a whole fish, by cutting it down in house, get it a few days fresher. Halibut this fresh is hard to find even in the Northwest, and some fresh mid summer morel mushrooms are about the only thing that could make it even better!
We also have delicious Kansas-raised Bison ribeyes that I will finish with a Roquefort blue cheese sauce and sauteed fresh Chanterelle mushrooms.
Enjoy! – Scott
