SUMMER SOLSTICE & LOBSTER ROLLS!

SUMMER SOLSTICE & LOBSTER ROLLS!

Good Morning from Keuka Lake!

As we prepare to travel to Maine, we are also preparing for our next Lobster Roll Event for 2022; Friday & Saturday, June 24th & 25th.                As always, this will be a preorder event :-)

Nothing screams Lobster Rolls like the official Summer Solstice, so make the Summer Solstice Weekend  memorable with a delicious meal from the coast of Maine.  Lobster pricing, which has been insane, is dropping (let that continue!) and we can offer this event at almost 10% less than last month...don't you wish the gas companies could do the same? As you know, I believe everyday is a lobster day...enjoy the moment...lobster is delicious and life is short! :-)

Lobster Rolls and Merritt Island Oysters will be offered:
Friday, JUNE 24th 11AM-4PM 
                &
Saturday, JUNE 25th 11AM-4PM 
PREORDER BY 5PM SATURDAY, JUNE 18th!!!

LOBSTER ROLLS ARE BACK! OYSTERS TOO :-)

LOBSTER ROLLS ARE BACK!  OYSTERS TOO :-)
We are enjoying our time in Maine and thinking about how we can 
share what we love here with all of you! Of course, the views I've attached
are a big part of it, but so is the SEAFOOD! We are going back to PRE-ORDERS ONLY! PRE-ORDERS DUE BY SATURDAY, October 24th!!!
First, we need to address the fact that with the weather getting colder, 
deck seating will be very unpredictable. So, after much consideration, we've 
decided that we will have to go back "To Go" only.  If we get a lovely day, you 
would be welcome to enjoy the deck during our regular business hours with your "to go" food. 
There are too many studies coming out regarding dining in, so for your health and ours we will not be offering inside dining.
 
Our new hours are:  Thursday/Friday 12-5
                                  Saturday/Sunday 9-3
 
***To Go and Shopping in our Company Store***
 
 Seafood Specials (October 29th-31st & November 5th-7th)
 
October 29th-31st ONLY(Thursday-Saturday)
 
Damariscotta Oysters                                $25.00 per dozen
Oyster Knife                                                $3.00 each
Les Allies French Brut Champagne            $14.00
 
These will be raw, farm raised oysters from the Damariscotta River.  According to Brian, an avid oyster
fan, these are amongst the best.  Oysters from New England are very different from oysters to the south
in taste and texture.  And, shucking oysters could become a new hobby for you during this extended pandemic :-)
Once opened  you can eat them raw (make your own Migonette sauce) or make a stew or Oysters Rockefeller!
We're also offering our favorite beverage with oysters on the half shell a lovely French Champagne.  It would
be great to have around the holidays, so feel free to order more than one bottle!
Lobster Roll                                                $22.50
(1/4 lb claw, knuckle & tail lobster meat served with chips and coleslaw)
 
GREAT WINES, GREAT PRICES!
 
Lab Vinho Verde Rose                                $12.00
(Previously offered and still stellar with lobster rolls!)
TOPO Tinto Red Blend (Portugal)              $14.00
This is quite the find! A really lovely red...perfect for the 
cooler weather and very drinkable across a variety of
cuisines.   (see attached)
***This may be the last of the "wine to go" we can offer.  We'll
know more 11/3, but order more than one if you are excited about any of them.***
 
As always, we appreciate your support of our small business!
You can order by email or give me a call.

Take care & be well!
