January Menu Items

 

Flank_Steak_Chimichurri

Flank Steak Chimichurri
Suggested Pairing: Malbec

Nothing pairs better with this flavorful Argentinian sauce than a wine from the same country, Malbec. The dry yet fruitful wine pairs beautifully with the fresh and potent chimichurri with fresh parsley, garlic, and chili flakes. 

 

Greek_Island_ShrimpGreek Island Shrimp with Pasta
Suggested Pairing: Agiorgitiko

Complete your Greek island experience with this classic Greek wine, Agiorgitiko. As hard as this wine is to pronounce, it is worth the perfection of this combo: the light and fresh white wine pairs perfectly with the bright flavors of this shrimp pasta.

 

Chicken_ParmesanChicken Parmesan
Suggested Pairing: Sangiovese

Take a trip to Italy with this perfect food/wine pairing. The dry yet full-body Sangiovese makes a fabulous companion to our chicken parmesan. The dry wine is ideal for the rustic tomato sauce and crispy breadcrumb topping this meal.

 

mini_beef_tostada_cupsMini Beef Tostada Cups
Suggested Pairing: Margarita

Nothing is better than classic Mexican flavors and a refreshing tart margarita. The limey and slightly sweet taste of a margarita perfectly balances the tostadas’ light spice and savory components.

 

 

February Menu Items

 

mushroom_swiss_bistro_burgerMushroom and Swiss Bistro Burger
Suggested Pairing: IPA beer

Nothing beats a beer with a burger, and a hoppy IPA will do just the trick for our Mushroom and Swiss Bistro Burger. The earthy sautéed mushrooms pair wonderfully with a hop-forward IPA, balancing out both robust flavors.

 

osso_buco_braised_beefOsso Buco Braised Beef with Gremolata
Suggested Pairing: Barolo

A beautiful dish like our Osso Buco Braised Beef with Gremolata needs an equally beautiful wine like a Barolo. If you haven’t tried a Barolo wine, now is your opportunity, and it will change your life. The rich, full-body flavor with medium acidity is the perfect pairing for the rich and flavorful beef stew.

 

pulled_pork_banh_mi_slidersPulled Pork Banh Mi Sliders
Suggested Pairing: Singapore Sling Cocktail

Our fun Pulled Pork Banh Mi Sliders deserve a playful and fruity cocktail to go with it. The pineapple juice, cherry, and gin will highlight the bright flavors bursting out of these little Asian inspired sandwiches.

 

classic_chicken_fricasseeClassic Chicken Fricassee
Suggested Pairing: Chardonnay

Our Classic Chicken Fricassee beckons for an oaky Chardonnay. The oak in the wine brightens the creamy, savory profile of this classic French stew.

 

Desserts

 

cheesecake_xangosDulce de Leche Cheesecake Xangos
Suggested Pairing: Hot Cider

The cinnamon-sugar coating on our Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Xangos pairs perfectly with hot cider. The addition of cinnamon in both the dessert and drink make these two a match made in heaven. To make your hot cider a bit more “adult,” add 1.5 oz of Whiskey or Bourbon to your 6 oz mug of hot cider.

 

molten_chocolate_lava_cakesMolten Lava Chocolate Cakes
Suggested Pairing: Cabernet Sauvignon

Anything chocolate pairs wonderfully with a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, but our decadent Molten Lava Chocolate Cakes scream for a full fruity Cabernet Sauvignon to cut through all the richness.
