Hawaiian Ono, Braised Local Short Ribs – Specials Jan 13-14

I have not finished the Valentine’s Day Menu yet, but we are filling up very quickly. Please make your reservations as soon as possible.

This weekend I have one of my very favorite fishes on the special menu, Ono (which literally means “good to eat” in Hawaiian). This mild, wonderful white fish from Hawaii. We use fish that is so fresh, I almost named it when it arrived today. This dish simply couldn’t be any more enjoyable, and I really hope no one misses out.

We also have a short rib made with locally-raised, grass-fed beef. This delicious cut will be slow braised in red wine and finished with a Gorgonzola-cream sauce alongside white truffle infused mashed Yukon Gold potatoes. It is braising in the kitchen right now, and smells so delicious, that I will be lucky if I can resist eating it all tonight!

Enjoy! – Scott
