Meatloaf Wednesday!!
Back by popular demand our embellished house meatloaf will be available on Wednesdays only!

A Far Cry From Grandma's Meatloaf This one has a story behind it. I spent 4 depressing years sweating away in a country style restaurant, microwaving meatloaf and slapping gravy on it until I swore never to make or even look at meatloaf again. Well its time to conquer that mountain! Here we grind our own wagyu sirloin to be mixed with local organic lamb and pork, a reduction of shallots and red wine, truffle oil, house made organic bread crumbs, local organic eggs, spices and fresh herbs then poached in Amish butter (no pre baking and microwaving here) topped with caramelized onions deglazed with red wine vinegar (you know instead of ketchup) served with mashed potatoes and seasonal veggie then finished with a creamy reduction of mushrooms and port wine. $17
