As you know Sunday is Valentines Day. St. Valentine lived in Rome during the rule of Emperor Claudius. Claudius wanted to have the largest army in the world and thought that by making marriage unlawful that he’d get many more young men to join. Fr. Valentine thought this was absurd and continued to secretly marry couples. He was ultimately caught and sentenced to death. While in jail many young people threw flowers into his cell. He was befriended by the prison guard’s daughter who spent many hours visiting with him. On the day of his death, February 14, 269AD, he wrote her a note thanking her and signed it Love Valentine. Valentine is the patron Saint of Love and thus the commeration of his day. Over a billion Valentine ’s Day cards are sent every year with teachers receiving the most. We’re celebrating all weekend and accepting reservations on Sunday.
Sharon and crew have some great Chalkboard Features per se. Valentine’s Day calls for lobster and crab so we’ve combined the two by stuffing a Jumbo Main Lobster Tail with Crab and presenting it over Buttermilk Mashers smothered with a White Wine and Butter Sauce. Ahi Tuna is Sesame Crusted, seared and served with Japanese Udon Noodles with Asian Style Veggies and Miso Broth. There is a 1# Bone-In Ribeye accompanied with Roasted Forest Mushrooms and DJB Zip Sauce; Pan Roasted Florida Grouper served with Artichoke-Pine Nut Rice and Tomato Coulis; 3 Cheese Filled Ravioli tossed with Spinach, Red Onion, Roasted Tomato and Palomino Sauce. Finally Chocolate Mousse for All Our Valentines!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT THE BISTRO!!!
Niki and Pico send High-Fives…Z a Soft Snort and I wish you all a MILLION DOLLAR DAY, TODAY AND ALWAYS..
