Seared Maine Scallops, Filet with Duxelles Specails Sept 10-11
Last night we donated 10% of our proceeds to the United Way. Thank you to all of you who joined us and helped raise funds for such a worthy cause. We were honored to participate.
We have one table open for the BOND wine dinner, which is otherwise sold out. If you would like to join us for this incredible event, please call as soon as possible. I was just notified that the assistant winemaker will be joining us as well and bringing an additional wine course. I didn’t think it could get any better, but it did!
We will now offer both specials both nights on the weekends (unless we sell out).
It’s not what you usually think of at 4 Olives, but we have really ramped up the beer list. I am trying to find beers that work well with our foods, or are interesting and wonderful on their own. In October we will offer a beer and food pairing dinner.
Enjoy! – Scott
