Postero Update

Brace yourself, the Holiday season is almost upon us. I have already started to see many of the large chains advertising for Christmas. Some of them even started before Halloween. Seriously, it is bad form to overlook Thanksgiving, one of the most important Holidays in my book. Stephanie and I have so much to be thankful for as I am sure you do as well. It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and to overlook the things that truly matter. We have a roof over our heads, clothing on our backs, food in our bellies and healthy beautiful children. Sounds like we are living the dream to me.

Here are a few specials for this week

Noodle Bowl Wednesday 11.11.15
Ramen Noodles, Crispy Pulled Duck Wing Confit, Slow Poached Egg, Green Onion, Pickled Fennel & Local Apple

Lunch Special 11.11.15
Cornmeal Crusted Carolina Catfish and pan Roasted Carolina Clams over Asiago Speckled Grit Cake with Roasted Mushrooms, Baby Spinach and Tasso-Tomato Cream

Weekend Big Plate 11.13.15
Grilled Heritage Farms Pork Chop, Local Organic Miso Marinade, Sweet & Sour Braised Red Cabbage with Toasted Benne, Postero Mashed Potato, Pickled Rutabaga Relish

We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, and will take a long overdue break during the Christmas holidays from Thursday December 24th-Monday the 28th. We are just starting to plan our New Year’s Eve festivities and will keep you posted as they develop.

I don’t want to look back on my life and think “I could have eaten that”. – Unknown (but they have a point)

Have a great week and eat well,
