Wester Ross Salmon and Piedmontese Beef – Specials Feb 24-25
Since I had eight different people tell me the salmon last week was the best fish they had ever had, and I had the opportunity to get that same fish again, I just had to offer the Wester Ross salmon this weekend. A totally different preparation though, with a definite Southwestern touch.
I am really excited to offer some terrific, local Piedmontese beef. Piedmontese are chalk white colored cattle with stout, muscular features and originally were from the Alpine area in Northwestern Italy. The meat is very rare, and is rated as the most tender of all cattle breeds, with a delicious full-bore flavor. With the lean, tender meat it is best enjoyed on the rarer side. I would say whatever you order normally, you should try one temperature cooler (I suggest rare). I am ecstatic to be able to serve such wonderful beef.
And it’s not too early to make reservations for Easter.
Enjoy! – Scott
