Day Boat Scallops Features End August 3
We’re in our last days of our Day Boat Scallop features—don’t miss your chance to try them this year!
You can try them prepared five different ways this month, and they are huge, tender, fresh, and simply delicious no matter which preparation you choose. No surprises here, but the most popular feature has been the Coquilles St. Jacques (we can’t blame you!). A favorite on our French menu in April in appetizer form, we love the chance to bring this dish back as an entrée during our Day Boat Scallops features. Our guests have also been enjoying the other dishes as well: the Herb-Crusted Scallops, Scallops Meuniere, Scallops Fresca, and the Bacon Swiss Scallops Melt.
Don’t miss the chance to enjoy the Coquilles St. Jacques, or any of our other delicious scallop dishes. We will continue to feature them through this weekend, but then they’ll be gone for another year!
Summertime Italian Menu Begins Thursday, 8/4 at 5pm
Our Summertime Italian menu is returning just in time for Local Foods week! This menu epitomizes our “Locally Sourced, Globally Inspired” motto. Taking the abundance of local ingredients available everywhere at this time of year—tomatoes, garlic, onion, zucchini and summer squash, lettuces, herbs, peppers, eggplant, peaches—we transform them into something unexpected and delicious, all inspired by the renowned culinary fare from Capri, a tiny island off the coast of Italy. Our goal has been to surprise and delight you with this menu, and based on its popularity its first two years of existence, it has!
Some favorites from last year… Panzanella Salad—a true Italian classic—with grilled peppers, tomato, zucchini, summer herbs, and plenty of garlic, tossed with grilled ciabatta bread and a red wine vinaigrette. We could eat this salad every day! Pesce all’ Acqua Pazza, a Sea Bass dish made in the traditional coastal Italian way of cooking the fish in salt water (traditionally sea water), served with a fresh tomato, garlic, and lemon broth. Cannoli with its crisp cookie dipped in dark chocolate with a sweet ricotta filling. A delightfully indulgent way to end a light, summertime meal.
Take a sneak peek at the full menu, and plan to join us Tuesday and throughout the month of August for all of our dishes inspired by the Isle of Capri. In addition to out regular lunch and dinner menus, our Summertime Italian menu will be available all month, starting at 4:30pm daily.
