Every Sunday night, you can swing by ~SALT HOUSE~ for their B Side menu, which includes a variety of burgers for $15, and some great deals on bottles of wine for $25 (like Château Roc de Segur, Bordeaux 2010 and Viñedos De El Sequé, Alicante, Spain 2011) and beers for $6 (like Affligem Blond, Lefebvre Blanche de Bruxelles, and Stone Pale Ale from Escondido). There’s the house burger with caramelized red onions, horseradish aioli, and blue cheese or cheddar (plus fries!), or you can go big with Le PIG MAC alla Cochon, with raclette cheese, special sauce, classic fixings, and shoestring fries. Oh yes, and the lamb burger, with tomato chutney, feta yogurt, cucumber, and house chips.
Meanwhile, are you in the mood for some Christmas goose? ~GRAND CAFÉ~ is offering their final “Misfit Dinner” menu for the year, highlighting geese from Sonoma’s Liberty Farms from Thursday December 20th through Monday December 24th. Chef Alicia Jenish will be offering dishes like winter vegetable and goose consommé, $8; goose leg confit, savoy cabbage stuffed with chestnuts, mustard gravy, $24; and goose roulade, prune and caramelized onion pudding, sweet and sour cipollini, parsley sauce, $26.
