Small Plates & Wine Pairing
orange apricot mixed green salad
ginger sesame vinaigrette | red radish | smoked almonds | red onion | 7.95
Sawtooth Riesling Snake River Valley, Idaho 7.50
yeah, I had the same response: “Idaho?” this wine is legit with rich pear, stone fruit, citrus and Riesling minerality.
pan-seared striped bass
riced cauliflower | leeks | green gazpacho | lemon paprika “air”-oli | 10.95
Domaine Skouras white blend Peloponnese, Greece 6.50
roditis and moscofilero are the grapes- which doesn’t tell you much. what I can tell you is that the bright fruity nose and tangy tropical flavor is great food wine.
hominy| carrot noodles | oyster mushrooms | garlic | red onion | basil | lemon-caper-kalamata olive butter | 10.95
Adega de Pegões Terras do Sado, Portugal 7.00
really interesting nose of summer ripe fruit like peaches and apricots. on the palate a touch of that same fruit comes out with great acidity.
sweet potato-thyme puree | grilled radicchio | pineapple | pecorino | forme d’ambert | pimento almonds | reduced balsamic | 8.95
Foggy Ridge Cider Sweet Stayman Dugspur, VA 8.00
these guys were just named by the new york times as the best cider in the country. this says sweet but don’t believe them. A touch of fruit but not sweet like you are thinking right now.
crispy braised pork belly
potato-ricotta-curry dumpling | grilled cabbage salad | lemon ginger vinaigrette | tamarind pork demi | 9.95
Poggio Della Torre Chianti Tuscany, Italy 8.00
this wine just looks like Chianti! the fresh black cherries on the nose, make room for the acid and earth you expect from Tuscany on the palate. light, but persistent, with a long finish for something in this price range.
six plates cheese plate
sliced apple | honey | fruit compote | mixed nuts | crostini | 11.95
Quinta do Cachão Mealhada, Portugal 7.00
portugal will be the next new thing in wine before too long. they are making very interesting red and white wine for great prices. this one is medium body with a little smoke.
