Specials for the weekend of February 27-28

February 26th, 2015

Some really fantastic specials this weekend, I spiced it up a bit with a little influence from India and the Middle East. Pair that with California Halibut, Locally-raised Lamb, and Rachel’s incredible dessert, and this is the perfect weekend to come in.

Contrary to what is being said, there are still Speakeasy memberships available at the Gold and Silver levels, the Founders level is sold out. We will open our doors (secretly) next week!

Contact me for more information or a tour if you are interested.

I have some incredible Halibut in for this weekend, and Pork Osso Buco from Craig and Amy Good’s farm in Olsburg. These are definitely specials that you won’t want to miss! And Rachel’s dessert is worth breaking whatever New Year’s resolution you made!

January 15th, 2015

We have noticed that a lot of you have been staying home to watch bowl games and avoiding going out because of how cold it has been. Well, the games are over and it’s finally supposed to be nice this weekend, so we expect to see you all here!

Really, it isn’t too early to book your reservation for Valentine’s Day. We will be offering a special prix fixe menu with a complementary glass of champagne, the menu is available on the website.

The locally-raised pork chop is on the menu now. These heritage breed pigs yield the finest pork chops in the world, and thus we kept the preparation simple to highlight the natural flavors. You won’t go home hungry after eating one of these!

Really exciting specials this weekend! Some flavors and combinations you haven’t seen for a while, and definitely some of my favorite winter treats here!
