Seared California Halibut, Grilled Lamb Chops – Special March 29-30
This March-Winter thing has got to go! It’s like the ice age out there, I keep thinking it can’t possibly snow again, and I keep being wrong about it. I keep thinking I’m going to see a mastodon roaming outside the restaurant.
I was super-hungry when I wrote the specials for this weekend, so I am thinking that they are going to be seriously enjoyable, perhaps even healthy as well. California Halibut, and Lamb Chops that just can’t be beat. I am also running the cream of wild mushroom soup, which I have not offered in some time.
Finally, I am really excited about the Sushi Dinner next week. Looks like we are going to have some incredible fish, Hawaiian Walu, Bigeye Ahi, and New Zealand King Salmon, so I decided to offer sashimi as well as sushi this time. When the fish is this good, it’s a shame to not offer it as a standalone dish. It’s limited though, so you won’t want to miss out.
