I know that Halloween is fast upon us, but do you know what is truly scary about this weekend? No, not our beloved Browns, but that next week is November already! And I hear that the man with the white whiskers up north is getting things ready for the big day in December, which is less than two months away! As the song says, where has all the time gone? But what is definitely not scary is that this weekend we have some nice specials to tempt your palate at Fratello’s. We will be featuring Certified Angus Beef New York Strip Steak, Swordfish and Lemon Sole for your dining pleasure. Remember that on Halloween there is still plenty of time after the trick or treaters are gone to come join us for some fine food and wine. We’d love to see ya’!
On our wine board our supply of the excellent Malbec blend from Argentina by Cuvelier Los Andes, Coleccion, is nearly gone, but our supply of Joel Gott Cabernet, the Sangiovese blend from Ferrari-Carano, Siena, and the Zinfandel blend from Lodi is still good. I plan to bring out a Bordeaux to join the board in the near future, and there are other wines awaiting their turn on the board.
The wine news I want to share with you is that I am preparing to launch a Fratello’s Wine Club in the very near future, with a target date for the initial release in early December. If you are interested I can discuss the details with you in the restaurant, but I am planning for releases three or four times a year, with each release being three bottles of wine. Although I expect most of the wines to be red, I also plan to include white and rose wines as well, and perhaps even sparkling. I think it will be a lot of fun and interesting, as it is when one drinks new wines (at least for me). Contact me at the restaurant for details if you are interested, but please not by email. I hope to hear from you.
Remember that we have started to take reservations for our annual New Year’s Eve Celebration. We have three seatings at 5:30, 7:30 and 9:30, and we take reservations for all size parties (i.e. even a deuce). It is always a good time, and we’d love for you to join us. Call – do not email – for a reservation.
Thanks for all your support, and we hope to see you soon.
