Welcome to Labor Day week-end!
In honor of the holiday we’ll be laboring; both Good Eats Cafe and Spuntino will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If you’re in the area we’ll have lots of delicious choices for your meal-time pleasure. On the menu at Good Eats is Fantasticks, Summer Risotto with Soft Shell Crabs, Scallops Sublime, Flounder topped with Buttered Backfin Crabmeat, Grilled Pork Rib-eye with Honeyed Peaches and Watermelon, and Crab Pasta. Reservations are made by calling 804-472-4385.
And then, at the close of business Sunday night, we go on vacation, our annual Fall break. All next week everything on the property will be closed as we rest up and turn our attention to the autumn season. All closed up to all except those who are into wine dinners.
On Saturday Sept 6, we will be presenting a French wine dinner. We rarely get to do these dinners on Saturday nights, so we are pulling out all the stops for this one. The simple version of the menu looks like this:
Galette of late-summer vegetables
Consomme of Shellfish
Stuffed Roulades of Flounder
Grilled Hanger Steak Bordelaise
(which is a show-stopper dessert based on pate aux choux)
The matching wines are still to be determined, but Matt Leader from the Country Vintner will be here to explain and serve the final choices. The evening starts at 6:30, is 5 courses with matching wines, and the cost is $65 per person. If you’d like to attend you can either call Good Eats or reply to this mail.
That’s the good food news this week, thank you for your strong support and
We hope to see you.
