Greetings from the kitchens of the Galaxy!
Summer is definitely upon us and that means that you will be seeing more and more of the wonderful produce from Farmer Jerry on your plates.
The beefsteak tomatoes just came in today so you can look forward to a wonderful Caprese Napoleon beginning on Thursday.
The term Napoleon is a "fancy" way of saying "layered" or, in this case, stacked.
Picture a perfect tomato, sliced and reassembled with layers of fresh Mozzarella and basil...lightly ribboned with balsamic reduction.
This is the quintessential summer salad!
Look for it on your menu this weekend.
Berries, asparagus, fresh spinach, Swiss Chard.....the list keeps growing...are all brought here fresh for you from the local farms via Farmer Jerry.
In other news, and this is big, we have a surprise for you beginning on Monday.
We will proudly present a new addition to the menu with our Steaks, chops and seafood selections.
A lot of planning, tasting and work have gone into this program which is sure to please all tastes and budgets.
You will see new additions like:
The Cowboy; an 18 ounce (or larger- if you can handle it), hand cut ribeye that is served on a cast iron platter with our loaded cheesy scalloped potatoes and finished with a splash of Bourbon....the aroma is dynamite!
The Cowgirl; a 10 ounce, hand cut Delmonico Steak broiled to perfection.
Twin 7 ounce Prestige Pork Chops; Cooked in our new 900 degree broiler and topped with our House Apple Cider Reduction.
A 7 ounce Flat Iron Steak; cut from the Sirloin Cap (or Coulotte) and might be the most tender and flavorful steak you have ever had.
The World Famous Stock Yard Sirloin; from Midwest Cattle, corn fed and aged a minimum of 30 days.
Chef's Catch of the Day (Tonight it is Orange Roughy) purchased in limited amounts to assure freshness.
And other fantastic additions as well.
Well my friends, I need to get back to the Kitchen.
Do not hesitate to ask for me when you come in to dine so that I can meet you and, perhaps, add a personal touch to your visit.
Hoping this finds you well, :
Chef Angus O'Hara and the Culinary Team at the Galaxy.
