Last night’s James Beard Salmon Provençal is on the menu again tonight! As for tonight’s new James Beard dish, we think this one is going to make a great finish to your meal: Cream Puffs with Chocolate Sauce. The cream puffs are made from a classic French choux pastry recipe and baked up golden brown. We’re filling them with our own freshly made vanilla-bean ice cream before topping them with a chocolate sauce made of heavy cream and both semisweet and unsweetened chocolates and a final touch of powdered sugar.
So, your dessert for tonight is decided. Now your dilemma is: What to have for dinner? Luckily, we have some suggestions. Maybe you’ll want to try our Asian-Inspired Short Ribs. To create those, we’re removing all the bones from the short ribs except one, then wrapping the meat around that remaining bone to impart added flavor while it cooks. The ribs will be braised in a liquid including Asian five-spice powder, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and sesame seeds, and served with an organic brown rice pilaf.
Or, you might prefer our Baby Rack of Lamb. Or, you might consider our Lollipop Veal Chop, stuffed with prosciutto and Gruyère cheese, with shiitake mushrooms alongside, served with a porcini mushroom sauce.
Whatever you’re in the mood for, come in and look at our specials and our reliable regular menu. You’re sure to find something that will make you smile and get you ready to enjoy an elegant dessert to top off a delicious dinner.
