Oyster Fest!

Oysters! We're slipping in one more fest this season, and we'll have two of the best varieties from the cold waters of New England -- Sweet Neck and Blue Point oysters. We'll be serving them up fresh on the half shell with our house-made hot sauce and tangy mignonette - a deceptively simple vinegar-based sauce that lets the sweet & salt of the ocean shine through, but with just enough zing to give a lift to the natural briny-goodness of the oyster. Or, if you're not sure about doing it in the raw, we've got you covered: oysters Rockefeller-style - topped with breadcurmbs, spinach, herbs & lemon zest, and then broiled in the shell.  Pair with a nice, crisp white, and your evening will start to hum. (Reservations recommended.)

Special Southern-style Dinner
May 6

You are cordially invited to a special "down South" dinner, with a splash of Western Mass style. Chef Jordan cut his professional teeth cooking in Texas, so he knows something of Southern-style cuisine, and he'll be putting his own creative stamp on these traditional dishes from Dixie.  And while the Kentucky Derby will have run it's race, we'll still be serving up the Mint Juleps, Old-Fashioneds, and Classic Sazeracs! Always good fun and good food, make your reservations soon, as our special dinners tend to fill up quickly.
