Well, I made beer at home last month. A nice Pale Ale that I bottled and have been examining closely in the refrigerator for the last two weeks. It’s gorgeous. Sunday it gets tasted. If it is any good at all (and I’m quite certain it will be), I’ll bring a few bottles up to Bizzi’s for discriminating beer tasters to critique. Don’t know if you noticed, but the White House released their own Honey Porter and Honey Ale recipes, and with the election coming up, I’m going to brew up some White House Honey Ale (without the White House Honey – I’ll use something local). We’ll pop it on election night regardless of who wins — just get out there and vote!
Fall vegetables and fruits are starting to appear – pears, apples, pumpkins, butternut squash. Love those foods! As we fall into fall, our menu will have a few seasonal adjustments. For example, next week we’ll be changing our Spinach with Fruit Salad – we’re adding tart Granny Smith Apples, Dried Cranberries, Toasted Walnuts, and a crumble of creamy Bleu Cheese. Several other new items will be appearing — Crisp Roasted & Herbed Airline Chicken, Grilled Salmon that can be added to salads, a lunch-time Grilled Beef Filet. Crazy good desserts, and other good stuff, too.
We’ll be offering some great German Oktoberfest brewskis & food to match next month, so don’t miss them. And mark your calendars for our Wine & Food Pairing Dinner on Saturday, October 27. We’ll publish the menu, wines, and cost soon.

This week is the eleventh anniversary of the attacks of 9/11/2001, and I, like many of you, can remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when it became clear that tragic and terrible things were happening on that fateful morning. In the top floors of North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City, there was a restaurant called Windows on the World where diners & employees could see far and wide. Almost all the restaurant’s employees perished in the attack, as did more than 100 guests. To honor their memories this week, we are serving a couple of the Windows on the World offerings: Hazelnut Dacquoise, a decadent layered nut, ganache, and Chantilly cream cake, and Egg Creams, a New York City classic beverage without eggs or cream that curious people of all ages can enjoy!
We have Karaoke on Saturday night, September 15th. Our regular menu will be served until 10 p.m., but singing starts at 8 p.m. — hosted by our favorite KJ, Josh. We’ll turn out the lights at midnight, but not until we hear lots of good tunes. Some of us even promise to dance.
Our Fall Menu will be introduced in the next couple of weeks. We will feature seasonal items, add a few delicious entrees, and highlight special items. Look for the announcement in your email and our blog! It will be an exclusive event.
Hope to see you soon!
