Specials for the weekend of September 19 and 20

September 18th, 2014

Along with the beautiful weather this time of year brings, there is also some sadness on my part. This marks the end of the summer growing season for most vegetables, and the end of the wild salmon season. Fortunately, we were able to get at least one last shipment of Alaskan King Salmon, and it is going to be wonderful. Don’t miss out, you won’t be able to make it all the way to the spring without at least one more dinner of wild salmon!

The new Featured Drink Menu is out, please come in and check out our new creations.

We are excited about the game this evening, and welcome all of you who are joining us from out of town this weekend.

September 4th, 2014

Some beautiful Alaskan King Salmon was made available to us this weekend, and there was no way I could pass that up. I love wild salmon from cold, clean waters. The fish is super-fresh, rich, and tasty. Perfect on the grill.

I couldn’t let the fish take all the spotlight this weekend though. I have delicious Kansas Angus filet mignon finished with Danish blue cheese and wild mushroom mashed potatoes.

It sounds like the weather might actually cool down this weekend. A dinner or just drinks on our patio is the perfect way to celebrate the change in seasons!

You will not want to miss out on the Alaskan Halibut this weekend. I may not be able to run Halibut from the cold and clean Alaskan waters again this year as the season is coming to a close. The fish is a beautiful, snow white color with wonderful, fresh flavors.

Or perhaps you would prefer the Certified Black Angus beef short ribs that we slow-braised in Barbera red wine with aromatic herbs and spices. Either way, the entree specials are awesome.

The special appetizer this week is cast iron-seared, fresh Brussels sprouts caramelized with balsamic and bacon. Yum!

The specials this weekend are really not to be missed!

The soup is an all time fan favorite, the lobster bisque. For a special appetizer I am making crispy risotto cakes with baby spinach, cremini mushrooms, and prosciutto. I created a new item with the sea scallops on a bed of penne in a smoked gouda sauce. We also have locally-raised Duroc pork chops from the Good’s farm combined with fresh grilled peaches. Rachel’s lemon dessert will be the perfect end to the meal. You pretty much need the whole prix fixe this weekend! The oysters from Vancouver Island are even a treat this weekend.

It is going to be way too hot this weekend for you to even think about cooking at home. After you take your kids to the fair, the only way to relax is to eat here. Let us do the cooking and cleaning!

The specials this weekend are all-American inspired with all-American ingredients. The first of the season Alaskan Halibut is amazing, really special stuff that you will not want to miss. The steaks are outstanding with a glaze I made by reducing a pitcher of Manhattan cocktails down to a cup of sauce. I also have local sweet corn and Alaskan King Crab risotto for the appetizer. I am certain you will want to come in twice this weekend to try both specials!
