MENU:
 
Merritt Island Oysters 
These are farm raised right in front of our cottage in Maine and truly amazing!
We are offering raw to shuck at home and for the first time "cooked"...see below...
1 Dozen to shuck at home $25 (Want more? 18 count $35)
Oysters Rockefeller            $35 (9 ready to bake oysters)
One of the most popular appetizers on restaurant menus and Brian does a great job (I was the "tester")!  All the work is done and all you have to do is put your prepared oysters on a baking sheet and wait a few minutes!  Fresh Maine oysters in their shell and topped with sauteed shallots & garlic, spinach, heavy cream, parmigiano-reggiano cheese and panko crumbs. Oh so good!  Check out the carefully selected wine pairings below and make this the start of a great evening!
 
 
Seafood Chowder (Yum!)
Brian got rave reviews on his Lobster Chowder and due to exceptionally high lobster prices, lobster is going to share the "stage" with some other great seafood and the result is of course, delicious!  Local Maine cod, lobster, scallops and Key West pink shrimp (think spring break). A seafood stock, potatoes, onions, celery and light cream cream bring it all together. Served with a demi baguette from Blue Heron Bakery.. Simple, delicious...as we like to say "less is more"!
16oz (2 servings) $23
32oz (4 servings) $44
                                                                                                      
Brian's Smoked Chicken 
This time Brian is smoking chicken legs.  We've talked about it amongst ourselves and a few customers and decided to change it up.  We love the legs smoked.  There's more meat and they are juicer as well. The preparation will be the same as the wings. The legs are JAVA BRINED overnight and then dusted with our Pork & Poultry JAVA RUB and slowly smoked with apple wood until tender and "javalicious". At home, reheat to crisp up the skin.. :-)
4 Legs   $10
9 Legs   $20
  
Crab "Bites" 
A favorite year round! Normally, we serve "2" with a side.
Cheesy, crispy deliciousness! Great as an appetizer or meal.
On this menu, there will be 4 in a box, frozen. Bake what you need.
Baking directions will be included. 
 
(4) Crab Bites $20
  
Coleslaw 
A customer favorite. Susan' grandmother's recipe...a keeper!
16oz      $5
Carrot Cake $5 (per slice)
This is my specialty area and hopefully the oven repair will be complete and this is a go. Filled with shredded carrots, walnuts, golden raisins and topped with a cream cheese frosting.  A family favorite :-) ***I will notify you if this isn't available as soon as we know...fingers crossed!***
 
 
 
NEED WINE?  We've selected 2 wines that pair "purr-fectly" with the menu this week. These 2 wines are terrific and well priced. 
 
Vina Palaciega Cava from Spain. Fermented in the bottle 
just like champagne. It's great with seafood and nothing says 
"Let's have a party" like bubbles.  A great deal on a lovely bottle! 
Makes great mimosas too :-)
$14 (750ml)
Peirano Chardonnay 2017 Grown on our estate in the heart of the Lodi Appellation, the fruit for this Chardonnay was hand selected and HAND PICKED. 92 points from Wine Enthusiast and Double Gold at the San Francisco Wine Competition!
$16 (750ml)
Olarra Classico Rioja Reserva 2015 This red from from Spain is fantastic! Great with the smoked chicken or all by itself! 92 points from Wine Enthusiast.
$19 (750ml)
 
We look forward to hearing from you!
Stay positive, stay optimistic and stay healthy :-)

MENU:
NEW...
Green Curry Lentil Soup 
The chilly weather lingers on, but this soup brings the brightness
of the pending Spring right into the bowl. A savory green curry base,
coconut milk, lentils, sweet yams and baby spinach.  So good!  We'll be 
sending you home with 2 bowls of soup and crusty bread from our friends 
at the Blue Heron Bakery.
16oz (2 servings) $18
 
 
FAVORITES...   
                                                                                                  
Brian's "Almost Famous" Smoked Chicken Wings
These wings are so yummy, it's hard to put  it into words!
Big meaty chicken wings are JAVA BRINED overnight and then, slowly
smoked with apple wood until tender and "javalicious". And, rather than 
being dusted with a JAVA RUB, he's perfected a delicious, Asian
inspired glaze (I was the "guinea pig" and it's amazing) that he adds near the end of the smoking process. Reheat at home...not your average wing :-)
 
1/2 Dozen Wings (6)  $10
Baker's Dozen Wings (13) $19
 
Black Cat Chili
Nothing better on a chilly Spring Day! Brian is the king of chili...or so many
customers say :-)  Organic, grass fed beef and pork, 3 beans, tomatoes, onions, peppers and the perfect spice...super savory, but not too hot. Served with tortilla chips.
16oz (2 servings) $20
 
 
"Crab Bites" 
A favorite year round! Normally, we serve "2" with a side.
Cheesy, crispy deliciousness! Great as an appetizer or meal.
On this menu, there will be 4 in a box, frozen. Bake what you need.
Baking directions will be included. 
 
(4) Crab Bites $20
 
 
Coleslaw 
A customer favorite. Susan' grandmother's recipe...a keeper!
16oz      $5
 
We will be in Maine 3/22-3/29 and hope to offer another delicious Maine Seafood Menu upon our return...April 1-3. (*seafood pricing dependent....more on that next week)
BIG NEWS!!! We are set to reopen INDOOR and DECK DINING
SATURDAY, May 1st :-) We're hopeful and excited!
Stay positive, stay optimistic and stay healthy :-)
