The cooler weather has made me want to fire up the grill and make our wood grilled plank pizza. And since we are going there ... Sunday night will be 'Dago Night' with fresh hand made red pepper tagliatelle. 

Many dishes this weekend are requested and I enjoy this, as they are some of my favorites. Just glad the weather makes them a little easier to prepare.
Friday night we start with a birthday.

 **** HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIANA ****

You always make sure I get the best, so ... as requested ... our Pistachio Crusted Salmon.
Also, wood fired Plank Pizza with red curry chicken and Lemongrass Ribs.
Saturday night features one of my favorite dishes from Oaxaca, beef tenderloin rubbed with our Oaxaca spice rub, grilled and hit with crema and mole. Also that night, a beautiful Khmer cured salmon and noodle salad. Finishing with one of our favorite house dishes .. Pork Tenderloin hit with spice mix and chipotle raspberry sauce.
Sunday night, fresh hand made roasted red pepper pasta with spicy Putanesca and shrimp. Also, in the line-up, our Seafood Pot Pie with puff pastry crust... and Rosemary Garlic roasted chicken from our Spaghetti Western menu.

A reminder: I will be gone from Sept. 29th till Oct. 16th. I will be in Oaxaca shopping for the cafe.



A quick note here: We book reservations (2 tables - 2 to 4 people) on the half hour. Larger parties (6 to 8) are booked once a night. Anything larger is moved to a private party venue, it is called organized booking.
This allows the kitchen [one man] to give customers and the server a good flow in the dining room without unnecessary chaos.
 Using trickery to get a large party in at one time is very disrespectful to the kitchen, dining room (other customers) and the server. 
We are not about quantity, this is not Applebee's. 
Respect is a two way street.

* We are a small cafe and we are by reservation.*
We strongly suggest you call and reserve your choice with your reservation. Since each night is a different menu, we don't prepare mass quantities and hope it sells ... food is not rolled over into the next days menus. I shop daily and prep for that night's reservations only. 
Just a helpful insider tip!

If you are using a gift certificate, please say so when making your reservation. 

Gift certificates are accepted for regular nightly dinner ... not for special event dinners.

We also offer a 5% cash discount to defray credit card processing fees. This helps keep cafe prices down.

 Our "Torte del Chocolate" . . . beyond decadent!
