Fennel Crusted Scallops, Braised Short Ribs – Special Nov 23-24
I won’t take up too much time in this week’s e-mail. But I know that many of you are going to be tired of turkey and stuffing, and tired of cleaning up a huge mess in the kitchen. Some of you may be tired of your big city brother-in-law crying about having to be in on our hometown of Manhattan.
I suggest taking everyone out to dinner here at 4 Olives. No leftovers, or anything turkey related on the menu. And your family will be impressed with the locally-raised, shiraz-braised beef short ribs on wild mushroom risotto, or fennel-crusted scallops with provincial tomato-cream sauce. And no mess in the kitchen!
