Specials July 22 and 23 – King Salmon, KC Strip Steak
4 Olives Wine Bar Newsletter
Well, it’s not really getting any cooler out there is it?! I crafted some really delicious specials this week, perfect for the warm weather and the fresh foods of this hot season!
We have have tasty oysters coming in from the Southern Puget Sound in Washington. Eagle Point oysters showcase this region, they are salty and sweet, with a full flavor. I haven’t brought these in before, so it’s something new to Manhattan.
Figuring out a soup for the middle of summer isn’t easy. How about a slam dunk of flavors in a potato-corn chowder with housemade, honey-cured smoked salmon?
Locally-raised lamb slider appetizer with Maytag dressing, King Salmon with roasted red pepper risotto, and KC Strip steaks with grilled with chipotle-raspberry glaze round out the specials for this week. How can you pass all that up?
If you can’t make it in over the weekend, perhaps you can grab dinner on Tuesday with a HALF PRICE bottle of wine, or a few cocktails from our Classic menu, $2 off on Wednesday!
We also have a new lamb dish on the menu. All of our lamb is now naturally and locally-raised, at Shannon Creek Farms in Olsburg. We are now offering a lamb kebab grilled with fresh vegetables, served on a bed of summer couscous. Yum!
Enjoy! – Scott
