Well, it has been another “topsy turvy” week, at least weather wise, although not strictly weather wise for me, if you know what I mean. But I digress, and besides it looks like we will end up on the “topsy” side of things as the week closes, which is a lot better than the “turvy” side. We have some nice specials for you to enjoy this weekend, including Atlantic Halibut, Jumbo Sea Scallops and the amazing Rib Eye Cap Steak, aka Spinelis, which you should try if you have not already. But the big news this weekend is that on Saturday we are launching a new menu, and a new lunch menu launches on the Tuesday after Memorial Day. Fear not, as much of the menu has not changed – I mean, we can not delete any of the Parmigiana, the Fratello dishes, the Eggplant, Linguini with Clams, Saltimbocca, Chicken Rollatini, etc. But there are several new Chicken entrees, a new Shrimp dish, and two new Veal entrees, including a new variation of Veal and Crab. And we are adding two new Flatbreads
to the Antipasto section. We hope you enjoy it.
On the wine side, the red blend from Portugal, Portada, is nearing its end on our feature board and I urge you to try it before it leaves us. A blend of five varietals native to the region, this medium bodied wine offers both fruit and a nice balance, very smooth. I am also very fond of the Nebbiolo Langhe from Rivetti from Piedmont, which offers an excellent introduction to this noble grape of Italy, the source of Barolo and Barbaresco. Not yet on our list but due soon is a Barbaresco Riserva, also by Rivetti, and the return of the Sangiovese based Vino Nobile di Montepulciano by La Casella, which beside being a hoot to say is a wonderful wine from Tuscany. Come in and enjoy some wine with us!
Thank you for your continued support, and we hope you are well. This Monday is Memorial Day, which by the way we will be closed for the entire day, and is a day when, in part, one remembers and respects how fortunate we all are in this country and especially those many men and women who have made all of this possible. We, for our part, are very grateful. Thank you, and we hope you enjoy your holiday. See you soon.
