New menu items debuted earlier this week and have been received well. There is a Gluten Free Cauliflower Crust Flat Bread with 5 Cheeses; two new salads: Black Beluga Lentil with Spinach, Roasted Tomatoes and Grilled Haloumi Cheese and a Baby Kale, Arugula, Manchego Cheese, Marcona Almonds, Pear and Prosciutto; two new sandwiches: NOLA Muffuletta chock full of Salami, Mortadella, Prosciutto, Mozzarella and Olive Salad and a Vegetarian Sloppy Jo and one new Bistro Plate: Linguine tossed with Applewood Smoked Bacon, Brussels Sprouts, Squash Puree and Parmesan. Whenever we do a menu update Sharon and I go back and forth as to what goes, what stays, what comes back and what to add new. It isn’t an easy task and we have to keep our personal likes and dislikes out of the equation. And, all the items then need to be prepped, order sheets changed, new menus printed and the computers updated. It is a huge task.
Sharon and crew have some great CHALK BOARD FEATURES starting tonight as well. As a Starter there’s Thick and Juicy Fried Clam Strips with Homemade Tartar. Bistro Plates Include: Pulled BBQ Pork Tacos with Cheddar, Roasted Tomato Salsa, Black Beans, Rice and Avocado Salad; Roasted Grouper Served over a Hash of Fingerling Potatoes, Golden Beets, Parsnips and a Drizzle of Herb Coulis and Lastly DJB Lasagna: Layers of Ground Pork and Beef with Onions, Garlic and Oregano, Cheesy Béchamel, Ricotta, Spinach and Zippy Marinara. YUM!!!
In the spirit of the holiday I give thanks. Thanks that I am not homeless or hungry and have the ability to help those who are; grateful for all the wonderful opportunities that I am given on a daily basis; proud of a remarkable staff that strives to satisfy not only Sharon and me but each individual that walks through our door; glad for the old friends that we see each day and thrilled for all the new ones we’ve made over the years and so appreciative of your compliments – they kindle a fire in us to come back and do our best every day. Thank you!!! And, of course, thankful for my wonderful family and my sweet pups and kind horses.
With much respect to our staff we will be closed Thanksgiving.
From the Bistro to your homes we wish you much Peace, Happiness and Many Million Dollar Days!!!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT THE BISTRO!!!
