This week at Good Eats – 11/19


Well, we know what this is… our final email special notification of this season.

This season seems to have gone by much quicker than in years past.

It really sunk in last weekend, when our customers started saying  “goodbye and see you next year!” The relationship that we have developed with you over the years sustains us, and keeps us sharp and creative no matter the bumps and potholes we encounter in the road through a season. For this we say thank you, and thank you again.

Now here is the funny part about the specials this weekend. Steve is being very creative in cleaning out the kitchen cupboards, so to speak. We know we will have some pork loin special on Friday & Saturday, a flounder and tuna special, and he’s also going to run the crab pasta that was on the summer menu as a special this weekend. So plenty of specials, but what they are going to be exactly will be determined throughout his cooking day.

For certain, tonight, Thursday is Prime Rib Night and we will of course offer ½ off any bottle of wine for Friday Night.

The most asked question recently has been when are we going to reopen for our 2010 season, and to be honest, we aren’t exactly sure. It may be a couple weeks later than last years’ opening of Valentine’s weekend.  We are also discussing the possibility of doing some wine dinners in Feb. & March. One thing is for certain; you’ll be the first to know by getting an email notification from us.

If anyone would like to purchase Good Eats gift certificates for this holiday, either email us, or call the restaurant and leave a message at (804) 472-4385.

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday & New Year,

Thank you,
Steve & Sally

However, we sell out every night when we run it as a special!

Specials for this week are:
