Holy cow! The Bee Gees, Van Halen, and Frank Sinatra dropped by to sing some crazy food tunes! What’s cooking in the kitchen for you: red beans & rice, fried chicken with baked garlic cheese grits, fish tacos, and campanelle pasta with a marinara sauce! We’ll be closed Friday, so mark your lunch calendars.
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Monday, August 3
Louisiana red beans & rice with biscuits. Well, beans still set the disco night on fire, but this time with Andy Gibb singing a song his brother Barry helped write: “Love is higher than a mountain, love is thicker than water. You are this dreamer’s only dream, heaven’s angel, devil’s daughter.” Yes, he loved beans so well he sang dreamily about them. Heaven’s angel brought the delicious delights of these legumes into his life, but alas, as the devil’s daughter, well, we know what happens — the uncomfortable bloat of gas, and he just couldn’t sing those high notes.
Tuesday, August 4 — Fried Chicken Day!
Fried chicken tenders with baked garlic cheese grits and roasted broccoli. Few know what a fried chicken fan David Lee Roth was. While practicing “Dance the Night Away” in long practice sessions with Van Halen, David would change the lyrics to stop the tedium of Eddie’s guitar. “Have you seen her? So fried and pretty. Fooled me with her stylish grease. And I feel her from across the room, yes, it’s love in the third degree. Oooooh, chicken, chicken won’tcha turn a leg my way….” It’s the real reason they booted him from the band. Fried chicken lyrics.
For crispy chicken Tuesday, why not try the fried chicken on a house salad ($12), in a bacon chicken wrap ($12), or on a sandwich ($12)!
Wednesday, August 5
Tilapia tacos served with Spanish rice with black beans, southwestern style tartar sauce, and fresh salsa. “Fishing is a discipline in the equality of men — for all men are equal before fish.” Who knew Herbert Hoover was so philosophical? Too bad it didn’t save his presidency. These tacos will save your week, though, and they might just keep the country out of another recession.
Thursday, August 6
Marinara sauce with Italian sausage served with campanelle pasta. Campanelle is the “ruffled bell” of the pasta world, and in Italian, that word campanelle can refer to “handbells.” Cool. Frank Sinatra was a huge campanelle fan, that’s why he sang “Ring-a-Ding-Ding” so well. It was a love song for his favorite pasta.
Friday, August 7 — Closed Today!
Dessert Offerings This Week
Zoë’s mini chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and a mocha icing filling. You remember that thief played by Vincent Cassel who danced his way through lasers to steal a diamond in Oceans Twelve? We didn’t think it was really possible either until we designed a laser protection system for these chocolate cakes. Danged if someone didn’t dance through the shop to steal the mini chocolate cakes. And, no it wasn’t the Pink Panther, he hates chocolate.
Double chocolate brownies. We call these “the nuclear option” when conventional chocolate bombs fail to please. Milk chocolate and white chocolate melted together in our Mr. Fusion form these bombtabulous brownies. “It’s two minutes to midnight, Mr. President,” the SecDef warned. “Grab the brownies and the briefcase, and take us to DefCon 1,” the president ordered.
Lavender scones with either lemon curd or strawberry shortcake. “Content is the philosopher’s scone, that turns all it touches into gold,” Ben Franklin told his local baker who made the best scones in Philly. The baker still made him pay for the goods, though, because content doesn’t pay the bills.
Key lime pie with graham cracker crust. Jeb Bush called, and he wants these beauties for his presidential campaign bus — something about reminding him of his Florida home. We told him his daddy stole them all. The elder Bush did a HALO jump to raid the fridge. Yes, it happened, and Barbara was ticked — he ate them all before he got to Houston.
Pecan pie. “Rhett,” Scarlett whined, “why do we have all these messy pecan trees?” “Well, darlin’, I love pecan pie.” “More than me?” she asked, batting her lashes. Rhett smiled that warm, charismatic grin that gets him everything he wants, and said, “Frankly, my dear…yes.”

Famous Bee Gees Bacon Quotes
Barry Gibb famously loved bacon, and he wrote a winsome tune about it. “I solve my problems and I see the light, we got a bacon thing, we gotta feed it right. There ain’t no danger we can go too far, we start believing now that we can be who we are. Grease is the word… It’s got a groove, it’s got a meaning. Grease is the time, is the place, is the bacon, grease is the way we are feeling….” Apparently, he wrote it over a stout English breakfast in Australia. Go figure.
