Menu for the Week of July 30, 2012 — CIVIC Success and Is It August Already!?!

Menu for the Week of July 30, 2012 — CIVIC Success and Is It August Already!?!

Thank you to everyone who came to our first installment of CIVIC last Friday, and a special thank you to Ian Mendelsohn for pairing several amazing wines, for being at the event to answer questions, and for just generally lending a helping hand all night.  We are looking forward to our next installment on August 31, when Eddie from Decatur’s own Ale Yeah! Craft Beer Store will pair beers as Kevin takes diners on a tour of smoked charcuterie using different types of wood.  Should be a great time and the perfect way to ring in Fall 2012!  To see pictures of the first event, please visit our Facebook page.

Speaking of Fall (can you tell we’re ready for the heat to subside?), all of the kiddies are going back to school which means busy families, readjusting schedules, and packing school lunches.  In addition to some of the more upscale items we have in the store, did you know we also have plenty of goodies that could make their way into a school lunch?  How about a veal bologna or pastrami sandwich for the kids?  Or the “local lunchable” full of sliced Spotted Trotter salami, fresh local cheese, and an H&F pretzel roll?  Or make a quick chicken salad from one of our creole smoked chickens that we make each week?  Well-nourished kids perform better in school and sports, so start the school year off right!

Stay Hungry Atlanta!

    Thanks Kevin! Had the rosso in my homemade tomato ragu sauce over penne last night. Delicious. Also had to start with the lomo paired with a nice Goat cheese gouda and a couple of slices of Toscano. Might have to stop in for the Pastrami tonight!
