Quite a few good dishes this weekend ... a few new, a few familiar and a couple requests.

It's funny, last week explaining that I do not have internet at the cafe and to * call * after 9:00 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Came home on Sat. & Sun. night to find emails that day requesting rez' for those days. Sorry, but, it was on the web page all week last week. 
I just don't understand why a smartphone is used for everything but, a telephone.

Oh yeah, contrary to "word on the street " ... 
we are not closing.

Friday night "those ginormous shrimp" pair up with fresh seared pineapple in a killer curry with Kaffir lime leaf and coconut. Also on the menu is a new pork dish from Ecuador with Annatto paste and aromatic spices and one of my favorites, a Yucatecan dish with turkey and chilmole.

Saturday night a little Oaxacan & house fusion with chicken with a macadamia nut crust hit with Ancho and orange salsa. A savory salmon with orange pomegranate salsa and a cold smoked pork loin chop with orange tequila sauce.

Sunday night "those ginormous shrimp" reappear in a classic Spanish dish with tons of garlic and crusty bread. A cafe favorite .. ravioli with chicken Bolognese and another new fusion dish with garlic stuffed pork loin cooked in hard cider with apples and onions.

We strongly suggest you call and reserve your choice with your reservation. Especially after 7:00, as we DO run out of popular dishes early, as other folks do reserve their choices. All large parties must pre-order. I shop daily for that night only .. food is not rolled over into the next days menus.
Just a helpful insider tip!
