Patchwork Gardens brought us some lovely green beans, and while they are great in our vegetable of the day, we wanted to showcase them as well.

Bone In Duroc Pork Rib Chop with Miso Butter and Grilled Shishito Peppers 29.00
Mello, fermented miso butter melting over a big, tender bone-in pork chop enhances the flavor of the meat without being too rich and heavy.

Fettucine Puttanesca with Shrimp 13/23.00
First, we make salsa cruda, nothing but ripe homegrown tomatoes barely cooked in olive oil with sliced garlic, salt and pepper. Then we make a paste-like puree with olive oil, garlic, anchovies, capers, a pinch of chiles and lots of parsley. We ladle the tomato cruda into a pan and add a dollop of the puree. Add the shrimp, pasta, and a handful of basil leaves, then toss and stir. We shower on the Parmesan and rush it to your table, and you savor the best moment for tomatoes in Ohio.

Grilled Hanger Steak with Worcestershire Butter 29.00
The beef is rubbed with coarse salt and pepper, grilled, sliced and slathered with a spoonful of a steak butter made with Ben’s homemade Worcestershire sauce. It goes with beef and butter in a most heavenly way. Dave likes the Worcestershire so much, he sips it on its own. Maybe that is too much information. The steak is served with sautéed broccolini and crispy little yukon gold potatoes.
Seared Salmon with Sweet Corn Butter and Cherry Tomato Salad 28.00
Salmon takes to the sweetness of corn beautifully, and a thick fillet roasted then slathered with fresh corn butter is perfect for this time of year.
