Well, it could be better out, non? I mean, like sunny a bit, perhaps a tad warmer as well. But we all know it sure could be worse, even could snow, heaven forbid, But there does not seem to be anything on the horizon to prevent one from heading out to enjoy good food and wine this weekend. For our part, we will be featuring Black Grouper, Jumbo Sea Scallops and Rack of Lamb this weekend. The weather and temps notwithstanding, the flowers are starting to come out, the Tribe is playing and won a game yesterday, and the Cavs are starting their playoff run this Sunday. There is an air of optimism in the air, and we are going to be optimistic and hope to see some of you this weekend.
Winewise, I plan some changes to our feature board tomorrow, adding a Malbec blend from Argentina and a red blend from the Lisboa region of Portugal. I am very fond of the wine from the Iberian peninsula (i.e. Spain & Portugal), not only for their quality but their value, and they work very well with our menu. We have wines from both countries on our list, and I urge you to try them. The other wine news is that we still have the lesser expensive Brunello that I mentioned last week, which I enjoyed with dinner last week (at Fratello’s, of course!), and I have a Pinot Blanc and a Riesling from the region of Alsace, France available. These wines are very crisp and fresh, and are somewhat drier than their counterparts from California or elsewhere in the world and are a good value. At this point they are available by the bottle only, but I think that you will enjoy them.
As I said above, there is an air of optimism in the air, which perhaps is typical with Spring and all the growth around us. Your support and friendship contributes to this optimism for us, and we are very grateful. I hope you are well, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
