Babe Has Left the House He Built

Babe Ruth, the name that speaks of the long ball over the centerfield wall, retired from baseball on this day way back in 1935. Come grab some grub, and join us as we celebrate “The Sultan of Swat” at the end of the week. Please take a moment to check our early June schedule below for temporary changes to our lunch service. Here’s what’s cooking for you at week’s end: blackened catfish tacos with Spanish rice and shrimp pasta primavera on angel hair pasta.

What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End

Please take note, our schedule for early June will be a little different: 

Tuesday — Friday, May 30-June 3, 2016 we will serve our regular hours with some great food.

Blackened catfish tacos with Spanish rice, charro beans, and fresh salsas ($13.50).  We season the catfish like our old friend Chef Paul Prudhomme, blacken them in a white hot cast iron skillet, lightly fry some corn tortillas, put it all together, and add a little lime cilantro slaw. With a little green salsa and fresh tomato salsa, you’ve got some goody that will make some surprisingly good grub. The Babe shared with us his philosophy for hitting (and for life), “How to hit home runs: I swing as hard as I can, and I try to swing right through the ball….The harder you grip the bat, the more you can swing it through the ball, and the farther the ball will go. I swing big, with everything I’ve got. I hit big or I miss big. I like to live as big as I can.” Hey, these catfish tacos will absolutely help you hit a few homers late in the game and live big, real big.

Friday, May 27

Shrimp pasta primavera with angel hair pasta ($15.00). Well, take some gulf shrimp, add some some fresh veggies with a delicious sauce, and lightly sauté it with angel hair pasta, and voilá, you’ve got a great dish to help you start the weekend just little bit early. Well, George Herman Ruth grew up playing ball in Baltimore at a Catholic school called St. Mary’s Industrial. A standout athlete, he was drafted by a minor league team called the Baltimore Orioles, then part of the Boston Red Sox organization. Just a boy-faced teen at the time, everyone called him “Babe.” Eventually, he pitched left-handed for the Red Sox before being traded to the New York Yankees (thus starting “the curse of the Bambino” which kept the Sox from winning the pennant until 2004). Well, the rest is baseball history: 22 seasons, 10 world series wins, and 714  home runs. And, yes, the power behind The Babe was pasta. He loved shrimp primavera pasta. Who knew?

Famous Quotes

Babe’s hitting advice at the plate shows his feel for the game, “All I can tell them is pick a good one and sock it. I get back to the dugout and they ask me what it was I hit and I tell them I don’t know except it looked good.” There it is, hitting advice from the Great One — sock it to what looks good. You know, come to think of it, that works well at the table, too. Pick a good one, and sock it.
