*NEW* Baked Scampi Dip – $6.00
with Shrimp, Scallops, and Baguette
Overall, this dish was just okay. The baguette was not toasted as we wished, but the dip was creamy, with both shrimp and scallops cooked perfectly. The scallops did have more of a fishy flavor we weren’t crazy about, but if you are a seafood lover, you will enjoy this dish.
*NEW* Oysters Rockefeller – $7.50
While this dish photographed perfectly and was cooked just as described, the texture of our oysters was very coarse and sandy, almost as if they weren’t cleaned properly. They were plump in size, and we loved the filling of spinach, garlic, and breadcrumbs. However, the texture was so off-putting that between the two options, we would suggest the dip rather than the Oysters Rockefeller.
*NEW* Bell’s Lager of the Lakes Bohemian Pilsner, Comstock, MI (5.0% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz., $9.00 for 12 oz.
From Bell’s: “Following in the tradition of Czech Pilsners, this crushable lager offers a combination of firm malt and herbal hop bitterness,” It also boasts a “crisp bitterness” and “clean herbal hop aromas.”
*NEW* Villa Wolf Sparkling Pinot Noir Rosé, Pfalz, Germany ($14/bottle) – $6.00
From Wine Enthusiast: “Notes of crisp yellow peach and strawberry extend from nose to finish in this ripe, intensely fruity sparkling Pinot Noir. It’s slightly candied on the palate, but crisp sour-cherry acidity and very fine, frisky bubbles lend freshness on the finish.”
Sean Minor Chardonnay, California ($18/bottle) – $5.00
From Sean Minor: “Our Central Coast Chardonnay is a delicate golden straw color layered with pear, apple, grilled pineapple, and subtle notes of vanilla cream scone. The entry weaves exuberant tropical fruit with green apple and white peach framed with gentle acidity. Once the wine encircles the mouth, enjoy sensations of a palatial experience and a beautiful lengthy finish.”
Cape Codder: Boyd & Blair Vodka ($33/bottle) with Cranberry, Pomegranate, and Lime – $11.00
The Cape Codder is a basic cranberry and vodka. The cranberry is a little watered down, and we wish the juice was a little sweeter to cut the tartness.
