"This Week's Special Fare"

Spring Pea Soup, our spin on the cold weather favorite (you know, Mary Beth's recipe, Jeff preparing it, the perfect recipe for disaster (success?)). Fresh Spring Peas, organic Spinach and just a touch of homemade Chicken Stock pureed smooth, served garnished with Radish Sprouts and a dab of Creme Fraiche.

And as always, we have our award-winning Tucker's Nantucket Clam Chowder (Jeff's recipe, Jeff preparing it...enough said)

Daily Specials
Our traditional Special this week will be "Milo's Barking Dog Dog"...2 Vienna Beef Hotdogs with Cheese and topped with diced Onions and Jeff's own homemade Coney Sauce, a little sweet, a little heat (uh the sauce, not Jeff). The Dogs are served with Chips or MB's Cole Slaw and Overnight Pickles.

And as always, we're featuring our "Bark Lard" BLT as did Food Network's "Triple D"! Thick slices of our own in-house cured Bacon, fresh Lettuce and Jeff's homemade Tomato Jam. All sandwiches are served with your choice of MB's Cole Slaw or Chips and Overnight Pickles.

The first of our two Entree Salad offerings...Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Salad. Sweet Onion Marmalade sets the base for the Salad topped with fresh baby Arugula lightly dressed with a homemade Orange Vinaigrette, our roasted Beets and finished with whipped Capriole Goat Cheese and a sprinkling of crushed Pistachios.

Mary Beth's Salad, our featured House Salad starts with organic Field Greens topped with fresh Oranges, Apples, dried Cranberries, Red Onion, spicy sweet Pecans and a dusting of Blue Cheese. A homemade Raspberry Vinaigrette and toasted Baguette are served on the side.
