Flounder with wild mushroom, Grilled Lamb Racks – Specials Dec 11-12
With this warm weather, and intermittent cold snaps, it is difficult to know if I should be preparing foods for winter or spring. I had someone ask me about playing golf tomorrow, and it may snow again in a few days. We will try and keep the specials in tune with the weather changes.
One thing is for certain, we picked fresh lemons from my Aunt’s home in Tempe Arizona (while at the bowl game) and brought the tasty citrus all the way back to Manhattan. My wife Rachel is making one of my favorite desserts with the best citrus to be had!
