I’ve already posted about Chef Yoel’s first menu for Restaurant Week, but he’s switching it up. Here’s a bit of what the chef has got in store for the next phase of the promotion–January 17th and 18th.
For lunch, diners get a choice of wild mushroom soup, marinated grilled shrimp and winter vegetable salad for appetizers. Entrees are
either grilled scallops, Cobb salad or braised lamb quesadilla. Dessert is a choice of mocha bread pudding, warm Granny Smith apple and cranberry crumble or chocolate cream pie. All for 25 bucks.
The dinner selections make me, and my stomach, ridiculously happy. Again Yoel has wild mushroom soup for an app…or arugula salad or grilled quail. (Special note: the quail is insanely good.)
Entrees will be braised short ribs, seared monkfish or pan roasted free range chicken breast.
Desserts include the chocolate cream pie, plus butterscotch creme brulee and pumpkin cheesecake.
Make your reservations now, people! And get the quail. Seriously.
Restaurant Week(s?) is starting next Monday and North Square’s Chef Yoel Cruz is all prepared with at least three different menus to serve throughout the promotion.
Do other restaurants provide more than one menu for Restaurant Week? I’m not sure, but if they don’t they should because it’s a great idea. The more yummy dishes to try, the better in my book.
To refresh your memory, during the period, participating eateries charge $25 for a prix-fixe lunch and $38 for a prix-fixe dinner. It’s a fantastic, wallet-friendly way for diners to either try out a new joint or score a bargain-basement priced meal at one of their regular haunts.
Chef Cruz’s first menu will run from January 14th through January 16th. For lunch, appetizers are a choice of shrimp bisque, arugula salad or chicken risotto. Entrees are hanger steak with kale salad, a tempura shrimp sandwich or roasted chicken breast. Top if off with a dessert choice of chocolate mousse cake, pumpkin cheesecake or milk chocolate panna cotta. All for 25 bucks!
Dinner is even crazier. Along with the shrimp bisque, the first course gives you a choice of radicchio and Boston lettuce salad
Seriously, people, this is a true value. Reservations are now being taken so call and reserve your table!
