Day Boat Scallops Return for July!
Last month, we promised to bring the best tastes of the beach to you, and we continue our summer-ready seafood specials this month with the return of our Day Boat Scallop features. With returning favorites and new additions, you have five different ways to try them!
In addition to mainstays such as Coquilles St. Jacques and Panko-Crusted Scallops with local Goat Cheese, we have also added some new tastes to the line up. Enjoy Grilled Scallops with Lemony Salsa Verde for an extremely fresh, summery dish. We have also added Scallops and Shaved Asparagus Tagliatelle, pan-seared with white wine, an Asiago cream sauce and poppy seeds. This last dish was inspired by beautiful Italian food we enjoyed on a recent trip to Mario Batali’s Michelin-starred La Sirena in NYC. Delightful!
Join us this month to enjoy these succulent fruits of the sea this month! Our Day Boat Scallop features will be offered daily after 4:30pm, in addition to our full dinner menu. Come in and try them along with our very fresh, very local produce offerings and continuing summer wine features!
More Refreshing Summer Wines
We’ve been busy tasting new wines and have selected some of our favorites from around the world to accompany our July Day Boat Scallop features. While we think any of these wines will go wonderfully with any of our scallop features, check out our pairing suggestions below for some house-favorite combinations!
Featured Wine Flight 15.
Vincente Sanz Vicaral Verdejo 6./28.
Castilla y Leon, Spain, 2015
A young wine with a nose of clean, floral notes, faint white fruits, and a subtle chamomile scent.
Refined palate displaying good balance between acidity, fruit and minerality. The slightest
effervescence enhances this wine’s crispness.
Pairing Suggestion: Grilled Scallops with Lemony Salsa Verde
Le Morette Lugana Mandolara 10./49.
Veneto, Italy, 2014
Stunning floral notes laced with savory peach and apple and a hint of almond that lingers on
the refined finish. Balanced, crisp acidity with subtle minerality. This white wine was
awarded 91 points from Wine Enthusiast.
Pairing Suggestion: Pan-Seared Scallops & Shaved Asparagus Tagliatelle
Paris Valley Road Chardonnay 7./33.
Monterey, California, 2014
Aromas of white flowers, citrus and green apple. Full and fruity on the palate, with notes of ripe
honeydew, white peach and vanilla. Pleasant and controlled oak on the finish
balances very well with the wine’s fruit elements.
Pairing Suggestion: Herb-Crusted Scallops with Goat Cheese
La Forcine Vouvray 7.50/35.
Loire, France, 2014
Bouquet of honeysuckle, quince, marzipan, ginger and apricot. Dense, rich mouthfeel with deep,
bittersweet walnut and fruit pit notes. A nearly perfect balance of fruit and acidity.
Pairing Suggestion: Coquilles St. Jacques à la Provençale
Try them by the glass, bottle, or flight all July!
Third Annual Turtle Alert!
For the third year in a row, we are happy to announce that a mother snapping turtle from nearby Millbrook Marsh has buried her eggs on the Hilton Garden Inn’s property. Just like last year, we caught her in the act of laying her eggs in one of the mulched islands in the lower parking lot.
Signs are making the nest for everyone’s safety, but keep an eye out for other protective turtle moms. While we still have some time before the babies emerge from their nest (the gestation period is typically 80 to 90 days), both adult and baby turtles are very hard to see on the pavement, so please drive with care.
We hope to have more good turtle news for you in September!
Planning for Arts Fest Week - Dine at Harrison's!
Both Central PA Festival of the Arts and the People’s Choice Festival in Boalsburg will take place July 13-16. We love the hustle and bustle that Arts Fest brings to downtown State College, but if you’re looking for a place to relax and refresh yourself, Harrison’s is the perfect spot to dine.
Just enough out of the way to avoid the Arts Fest crowds, no-hassle parking (what downtown restaurant can boast that during Arts Fest weekend?), and with a local artfulness of its own, Harrison’s will be open and serving great seasonal fare and refreshing wine features all week!
Come in, enjoy one of our Day Boat Scallops features with a glass of lively Vouvray, and you’ll be ready for your next move, whether it’s back downtown to listen to some great live music or home for a quiet evening on your porch.
If you’re still concerned about crowds, don’t hesitate to call ahead and we’ll reserve a table for you: 814.237.4422.
