New Spring Menu

Savory Tastes Cafe recently changed to their Spring Menu so a group of us went there last night for dinner, to try out the new selections. Some of the selections had been on the Mother's Day brunch menu. I started with the Smoked Gouda Risotto with Sliced Duck, something I had on Mother's Day as well. This is an extremely tasty dish, with a nice smoky flavor to the Risotto and lean pieces of duck. Just a great combination of flavors. I moved onto a cup of Roasted Corn and Fish Chowder. This was a prior favorite of mine and it was as good as before. It is jam packed with fish and corn in a light and delicious broth. For dinner, I had a special, lamp chops wrapped in prosciutto with a pistachip pesto sauce. Another past favorite, and an excellent dish!

The others had some of the other selections, including chilled avocado soup, crab cakes, rib eye steak, salmon, and halibut. Everyone very much enjoyed their meals. The restaurant was packed last evening and we were lucky to get a reservation. If you wish to go there on the weekend, you definitely should make reservations ahead of time.

I have to add as well that they are also serving home-made potato chips, their chipotle chips, which were delicious! Home-made potato chip continue to catch on!
