Wine Pairings
Bolla Soave  Veneto, Italy    7.00

Soave is made primarily from a varietal called Garganega.  This wine is light and crispy, with notes of lemon and  bitter almond

 

 

polenta wrapped scallops
corona bean ragout | smoked mushrooms | endive  | escarole | tomato-balsamic jam | 9.95

Lioco   Chardonnay     Sonoma County, California   10.00

Welcome to the New California! These guys are part of a movement to redefine CA wines. Here we have classic, ripe new world fruit, but with a clean refreshing and balanced finish. If you haven’t tried a chard in a while, give this a go!

 

 

p.e.i. mussels

roasted butternut squash | sage | chorizo | shitakes | cream| crostad | 8.95

 

 

Dom de la Charmoise   Sauvignon   Touraine, France    8.50

Sauvignon Blanc has fallen a bit out of fashion, and perhaps for good reason. It’s nice to come across a sb that shows we shouldn’t forget about this noble grape. Rich minerality, clean pithy citrus, and a long finish.

 

grilled bavette steak
pumpkin-rosemary fritter | kalamata chevre | kale | onion | rosemary demi | 10.95

Tabarrini   Colle Gimaldesco   Montefalco-Sagrantino, Italy   10.00

100% Sangiovese from Umbria. This full bodied wine spends 30 months in French oak and a further 6 months in bottle before it is released. I would put this wine in the “perfumed powerhouse” category of Italian reds.

 

 

flatbread
polenta spread | farmhand foods spicy italian sausage | cranberries | grana padana | 8.95
Domaine Chiroulet  Java Red   Côtes de Gascogne, France  7.00

Almost equal parts Merlot, Cab Franc, and Tannat. This is an easy drinking, medium-bodied delicious red that you don’t have to think about, just enjoy.

 

 

six plates cheese plate
sliced apple | honey | fruit compote | mixed nuts | crostini | 11.95

Redheads Studio “Yard Dog Red”  South  Australia  8.00

A blend of mostly Cab Sauv that has all the boldness of an Aussie red with finesse and food friendliness.

 

firsthand foods beef sliders OR house made black bean sliders – smoked cheddar | lettuce | pumpkin sour cream … 8.95
truffle frites – truffle oil | house made ketchup | parmesan … 6.95
sweet potato arancini with smoked gouda … 5.95

six plates lamby joes … 8.95
olive plate … 3.95


apple spice cake
krupnikas caramel | lemon cream cheese ice cream |
almond filo crisp | 5.95
Camut Normand Pommeau   Calvados, France  2 oz … 8.00

Made of calvados and unfermented cider, typically Pommeau is served as an aperitif. But with its baked apple, smoke, licorice and toffee notes, in this case we have chosen it for a refreshing dessert. Not too sweet, I promise.

 

 

flight of local yogurt and house made sorbet - choose a total of three flavors | ask for flavor choices |  3.95

chocolate truffles – blackberry lavender | pink peppercorn and sea salt | popping truffle <3 | $2 per piece

toasted honey white chocolate marshmallow | $1.50 per piece
