A Note From the Chef

Greetings from the kitchen!

K will be closed for dinner this friday night, 5/26...but we will be open for both lunch & dinner on Saturday!  We are going to open the patio up so come on down and celebrate Memorial Day weekend with us...the menu has some great choices.  The asian tuna and the beef tenderloin rigatoni is going to hit the spot.

We will be having an special patio opening party soon!  We are going to do it in combination with our first annual Rose Wine Tasting Party.

Cooking classes are now in full gear.  If you want to see the rest of the schedule just scroll down, the list of classes comes next after this.  Our next one is on the 30th...Cook like a Chef.  I will be showing you all the tricks of the trade to make you food look like it comes from a professional kitchen.  It should be a fun one so come on down and join us!  

We are a few weeks into our new wine list and it is going really well, but we have expanded on wine portfolio soooo there are a lot more you need to try.  Remember if you don't finish it here, we can seal it up and you can take it home.  We have so much wine in the back of the house we are doing $6 glass pours of some of our wonderful bottles from the last menu and from parties.  You get a chance to taste some new wines and you don't have to pay the bottle price.

Our lunch menu had gone over quite well. So far the hits are the cuban sandwich and the red thai curry shrimp dish. However, our chicken casserole with puff pastry and warm pot roast sandwich are still the big winners. We are getting ready to change the menu....so some things will have to come off and be replaced...just saying it might be time to come in and have it one last time.

Have a good one!   K
