Local Food: Summer's vegetables can shout out their arrival, but Steven coaxes a subtle melody from them with his ratatouille. A dish of sautéed summer vegetables that Juila Child once said "perfumes the kitchen with the essence of Provence," ratatouille is started in our kitchen with squash from Mystic Morning Farm, onions from Harvest Hill, Riverside's garlic scapes, and tomatoes, eggplant and peppers from Pete's. Bright basil and fennel add their pungent aromas. The ratatouille is the perfect companion to a chicken breast, roasted with dill and fennel butter, keeping the meat moist and flavorful. Crispy onion rings and a bit of mashed potatoes round out this flavorful summer dish.

At the Bar:
Don't forget our Sunday and Monday drink specials. This Sunday, August 14 we offer a $2.50 pint of Trout River Rainbow Red, a $4 glass of Fresh Tracks Farm Rosé or East Shore Vineyard Cabernet Franc. The basil lemontini is offered for $5.
