Postero Update 11.12.19

Greetings and Salutations.
The cooler weather has brought on some seasonal menu changes. I love it when the year starts to cool off and I can begin to eat heartier meals, putting on my “Winter Coat” so to speak. We made some new additions to the menu that reflect this philosophy and more changes are on the way. Poke your head in and say Hi, or pull up a chair with us and come get your deliciousness on. You deserve it.

“All food is comfort food. Maybe I just like to chew.” -Lewis Black

Calling all Soft-shell lovers!

We’ve got crabs!
Soft-shell crab season is just getting started and every restaurant in the South East is competing for them. We are expecting our next shipment this coming Wednesday April 10th. So that’s exactly what we are planning for our dinner special that evening. If the harvest is strong we are planning on running them through next weekend as well. A host of factors can slow down or stop the flow. The harvest isn’t a constant flow yet and any cold snap can slow them down.It will take consistently warmer weather and the full moon in middle of this month will really help to get things going.

“I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex, and rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself.” – Johnny Carson
We take cocktails seriously
A great craft bar is one that truly embraces the history of the cocktail. To invent an original drink isn’t as important as understanding how the classics were made and then using that knowledge to inspire creativity. If a bartender is passionate about the craft of the cocktail, it will show in a drink as simple as an Old Fashioned. If you haven’t had Taylor’s Signature Old Fashioned…what are you even doing?

“Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.” -Doug Larson
We love the idea of applying modern-day sensibilities to traditional recipes. So we use great ingredients and treat them with respect for where they come from, how they are handled and who they are going to. There are few joys greater in our lives than sharing tasty, beautiful food with our families, friends and community.
