Spring Update

SPRING SPECIALS

As spring rolls in, so do our seasonal dishes. We are starting to see some early spring products rolling into the market.  We have first of the season Rhubarb this week and next week will be getting in our first harvest of South Carolina strawberries and there will be much more to follow.  I can hardly wait for sugar snap peas, Henderson Co. asparagus and soft-shells crabs. Recipe testing doesn’t just happen in the kitchen.  Stephyn (our Mixologist) has begun working on spring cocktails too.  Either way, on plate or in a glass, springtime is always delicious to me.         Jason
Join us  this weekend for Grilled Cape Hatteras Swordfish.
