Sip January 2017

By January 12, 2017Uncategorized


As I write this we are in between last week’s new low high temperature and this week’s new high temperatures.  And looking for several inches of rain this weekend.  Crazy weather, but we have the right menu for all Winter conditions.

Our apps now feature a Hot Crab and Artichoke Dip with homemade toast points that’ll warm you up, and our Tomato Soup in Puff Pastry is the epitome of Winter comfort.

We’ve been receiving our Pacific Coast Swordfish from both Santa Barbara and San Diego docks and it is a beautiful fish on the plate, served with our savory rice pilaf and lemon dill cream sauce.

If you are in a comfort mood, try our slow braised Bone-In Short Rib over Italian carnaroli risotto, or our Gulf Shrimp & Grits.  And if you are a meat and potato kind of diner we have our awesome Heritage Filet Mignon and NY Strip Steaks paired with our potato pavé, a stacked and sauted potato with blue cheese crumbles.  I also want to mention our hand made Spinach Gnocchi served in a creamy Mornay Sauce is fast becoming our favorite side dish.

This month and next we are adding several wines to the list, mostly reds, that will give you more choices from Napa, Sonoma, Oregon and Washington.  Look for new Cabs, blends and pinots and maybe a random zin too!!
Also, ask to see the Proprieter List of wines that we sell by the bottle only….there are some great buys on limited quantity wines.

Weekday Glass Specials – Enjoy a carafe of your favorite wine for the price of a glass from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.  A carafe is a glass and a half, and you can select any wine on the glass list.

Friday and Saturday February 10 and 11 – We are extending the Valentines celebration opportunities these two evenings by offering our full menu and some special entree and desserts.  All throughout the Valentines celebration we are reducing the number of reservations we are accepting to provide a more intimate and romantic setting.  Low light, flowers, soft music and space between tables is what we are planning for you.

Valentines Day Tuesday, February 14 – We are serving up a Four Course Prixe Fixe dinner with choices of Filet Mignon and Shrimp, Lobster or Swrodfish and accompaniments for each.  Appetizer, soup or salad and dessert are included for $68.95 per person plus tax and gratuity.  You can see our menu on Open Table at
