Specials for weekend of May 9 & 10

Awesome specials with really unique ingredients this weekend. I have in some incredible wild ramps and fiddlehead ferns from the northern part of the Appalachian Mountain range on the East Coast. Ramps are a type of young wild leeks, and fiddlehead ferns are the uncurled fronds of fern plants. Both are only able to be harvested from the wild, and are only available for a very short time in the spring, usually a week or two. I have used them with the specials this weekend which include wonderful ribeye steaks, and scallops with shrimp and penne pasta. You really will not want to miss these specials. PLUS I had a few morels left and made a batch of cream of morel soup. This soup is a one batch per year event!

I don’t have a menu yet, but I am betting you will not want to miss out on a Louis Jadot Burgundy wine dinner in June!

There are a few seats for brunch this Sunday, but not many. Next week is Graduation, and we are super-busy, so please be flexible if you are joining us then.

Enjoy! – Scott
