Grilled Chicken and Watermelon Salad

Watermelon is an inspired companion to grilled chicken, and also to briny foods like dry-cured black olives and feta cheese. Here chunks of ripe watermelon are piled on a slaw of shredded cabbage and spinach, along with the chopped olives and crumbled feta, then hot grilled chicken, fresh herbs and a drizzle of fresh-squeezed citrus vinaigrette. Served with warm toast, this unusual and delicious salad is summer on a plate. 12.95

Fish Tacos

Three fresh fish tacos in soft corn tortillas with shredded cabbage, our vibrant salsa verde and smoky, spicy chipotle mayo. The fish melts in your mouth, the salsa is zingy, and the earthy flavor of the tortilla brings it all together. Served with crisp fries or vinaigrette dressed greens. 11.95

Tuna Nicoise Sandwich

Tuna Nicoise (pronounced Nee-swahz) is the classic salad from Marseilles on the southern coast of France. Here we put the same elements into a summer sandwich. Superior-quality canned tuna mixed with olives, capers, olive oil and a dab of mayonnaise is layered on grilled bread with slices of hard-boiled egg, homegrown tomato and house-pickled green beans. Dig into this fresh, meaty, briny tuna sandwich bursting with flavor as Summer begins to wane.. Served with fries or vinaigrette-dressed greens. 12.95

Fried Green Tomato Sandwich with Bacon and Goat Cheese

Sliced, coated in breadcrumbs and fried to golden brown, green tomatoes soften and sweeten with cooking and become a special treat.
