Seasonal Lunch Specials
Thai Summer Salad with Beef and Basil
I cannot get enough of this warm, Thai-seasoned ground beef, redolent with basil and soy and fish sauce, tossed with cantaloupe, cucumber, tomatoes and pea pods and such. It is what I want to eat at this time of year, and it is delicious. Showered with peanuts and mint and basil, it makes the most umami-rich, gotta-have-another-bite lunch you would ever want. Not spicy, but you can spice it up on your own. Just full of flavor. 14.95
Fried Green Tomato Sandwich with Bacon and Goat Cheese 12.95
Sliced, coated in breadcrumbs and fried to golden brown, green tomatoes softened and sweeten with cooking and become a special treat. Here they are teamed with smoky Nueske’s bacon, a slathering of goat cheese, lettuce and caper mayo to make a great summer sandwich. Served with fries or vinaigrette-dressed greens.
Tuna Nicoise Sandwich 12.95
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 a s Summer rages on. Served with fries or vinaigrette dressed greens.
Fish Tacos 12.95
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
Grilled Cheese 10.95
Superior quality cheeses, housemade additions and DLM artisan bread spread with whole butter are cooked on the flat top till crispy on the outside, oozy on the inside.
Order cheese only, white cheddar, gruyere or gouda, or with these additions:
- Swiss Gruyere with Red Wine and Grilled Onions
– Red wine is brushed on the inside of the bread
- Provolone, Basil and Tomato Grilled Cheese–Provolone with slices of local tomato and basil leaves makes the summeriest of grilled cheese sandwiches. Served with fries or vinaigrette-dressed greens.
- Cheddar with Ham and Apricot Chutney (1.50 supplement). Each year after the 4th of July, Ed Hill brings us fresh apricots from family orchards near Lake Erie, and part of it always goes into this sweet, savory and slightly spicy chutney. Fruit and Cheddar cheese have a classic affinity and this combination makes the best, brightest grilled cheese ever, served with fries or vinaigrette-dressed greens.
All sandwiches are served hot with house-made pickle and your choice of french fries or vinaigrette-dressed greens.
‘Lark Burger 12.95
Good, coarsely-ground beef seasoned with red wine, minced onion, coarse salt and fresh rosemary, all of which enhance and juicify the burger. The alcohol is totally cooked out before wine meets beef. Served on a buttered, toasted kaiser roll with white cheddar, mustard-mayo and lettuce
Meadow Burger 11.95
A meatless, whole grain, nut and vegetable burger grilled to a crispy brown, nestled in a buttetred, toasted kaiser roll, slathered with mustard-mayonnaise and topped with lettuce and juicy, marinated roma tomato slices, This burger is vegan, and though some of the accompaniments listed are not, just say the word and we’ll substitute olive oil and vegan-aise for the butter and mayo
Banh Mi-Vietnamese Chicken Sandwich 13.95
A French/Vietnamese hybrid and one of our most popular sandwiches. Here’s the French part-buttered baguette is toasted and spread with a thin layer of Nueske’s smoked liver pate. Then the Vietnamese part-on the pate we pole Viet-marinated chicken, house-pickled carrot and daikon radish, fresh jalapeno slices and cilantro. The other side of the baguette is slathered with spicy sushi mayo, and goes on top. The rich, smoky pate is in the background-not too assertive at all. The fresh ingredients sing out, the mayo adds zing and the crusty yet tender Boosalis baguette brings it all together. If you don’t like it too spicy, ask that the jalapenos be left off, but what a shame. Served with fries or vinaigrette-dressed greens.
Shaved Beef Sandwich 12.95
Beef is slow-poached in wine and stock with lots of garlic cloves, then sliced super-thin. To order, we throw about a quarter pound of the meat on the griddle with sharp cheddar and let it steam under a lid. We spatch it up onto a grilled split baguette dressed with horseradish cream, and serve it with a cup of the pan juices for dipping.
