What We’re Cooking for You This Week

Pork and brisket quesadillas with Monterrey jack cheese, house-made adobo sauce, fresh salsa, a light salad, and charro black beans. Slow-cooked pork and brisket quesadillas with delicious adobo sauce fresh salsa, a light salad, and charro black beans are just the way to start a great Valentine’s week. George Gordon, the poet we know as Lord Byron, “Love will find a way through paths where wolves fear to prey.” Love will find a way — Pablo Cruise, Yes, and even The Lion King sang about it.

Chicken cacciatore on angel hair pasta with house bread and salad. Our chicken breast is pan-fried in butter with a crushed plum tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, and fresh red peppers sauce served on a bed angel hair pasta. Isabella Rossellini admits, “I always have parmigiano-reggiano, olive oil and pasta at home. When people get sick, they want chicken soup; I want spaghetti with parmesan cheese, olive oil and a bit of lemon zest. It makes me feel better every time.” Well, a girl’s gotta have her priorities.
If you can’t make it for lunch on Wednesday, just give us a call at 267-4457, we’ll set aside some supper for you of delicious chicken cacciatore on angel hair pasta with house salad and bread.

Fantastic Thursday: Lightly breaded, pan-sautéed drum, shrimp quenelle, and a creole sauce with house bread and salad ($15). We lightly bread some lovely drum, pan-sauté it, add a shrimp quenelle (a fancy French word for “dumpling”), pour a delicious creole sauce over the top, and add our own house bread and salad for a wonderful jump into the weekend. It wouldn’t be Thursday without a little ichthyology: believe it or don’t, the drum’s scientific name is Aplodinotus grunniens. The first word (from the Greek) means “single backed,” but the second word (from a Latin root) is more interesting because it means “grunting.” Yep. Apparently, the mature males “grunt” by vibrating a special set of muscles against the swim bladder during spawning. Love in the fish world — must be a fantastic, grunting Thursday during Valentine’s week….

Calvin Coolidge wrote, “I have seen so much fiction written on this subject that I may be pardoned for relating the plain facts. We thought we were made for each other. For almost a quarter of a century she has borne with my infirmities, and I have rejoiced in her graces.” Well, ol’ Cal got it right — that whole love business between two people “made for each other” really is an interesting mix of infirmities and graces. Happy Valentine’s Day!
