HEADLINE NEWS: A STAR IS BORN AND A STAR RETURNS!!!
Yesterday morning Mimi Kwiecien, one of our line chefs extraordinaire, did a segment on WXYZ demoing our Gazpacho recipe. Gazpacho is an original menu item from Seven Mile and we sell gallons and gallons a week. The link is below and you can get the recipe from the station’s website. Mimi did an excellent job and represented the Bistro fantastically. She was articulate, cool as a cucumber and her confidence shined through. Thanks Mimi! Sharon and I are proud to have you as our TV ambassador!
The summer menu is going well with the Shrimp Tacos and BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, The Dexter, selling like wildfire. My personal favorite is the Grilled Feta Garnished with Basil Oil and Olives. The Chalkboard Features starting tonight are awesome per se and include Fried Oysters with Tabasco Dipping Aioli; Prosciutto Wrapped Halibut presented over Pesto Orzo with Artichoke Lemon Butter Sauce; Grilled Bistro Steak Accompanied with a Root Vegetable Gratin and Cognac Demi-Glace; Cracker Crusted Arctic Char Served with a Sauté of Summer Veggies Drizzled with Basil Vinaigrette and our Veggie Plate of the week A Baked Sweet Potato topped with Stir-Fried Broccoli, Peanuts and Edamame tossed in a Coconut Yellow Curry Sauce. Brendan’s Dessert is a Sticky Toffee Raisin Spice Cake with House Made Bourbon Banana Ice Cream. YUM!!!
Finally, as we draw close to the 4th of July let’s remember that it is not just another day off but a holiday commemorating our independence, then only 13 colonies, from the Kingdom of Great Britain in 1776. Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence which was signed by 56 others including John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, John Hancock and John Penn. The youngest signer was Edward Rutledge at age 26 and the oldest Ben Franklin at age 70. Two of the signers became president, John Adams, our second, and, Thomas Jefferson our third. Ironically both Adams and Franklin died on the same day, 7-4-1826. James Monroe died on 7-4-1831 and Calvin Coolidge, our 30th president, was born on 7-4-1872. Equally important this Fourth is to remember all who have died protecting our freedom and all those who have served in the past or now. Without their dedication and devotion to the liberty of all we would not be living the American Dream.
WE ARE CLOSED SUNDAY THE 3RD AND MONDAY THE 4TH.
Be safe, have fun. And remember: “Make Every Day A Million Dollar Day.”
