“weekend special” starts tomorrow @5pm!

This weekend Chefs Tim Dube and Olivia Poulos will be preparing a “must-order” entree special for the Carpe Vino restaurant & bar.

miso cured black codpork & “lobster mushroom” dumplings, corn cob dashi – 28

A picture to follow in tomorrow’s email (Instagram too), and you will see this dish is all about the broth.  The chefs will start with corn stock adding dried mushrooms, Bonito (dried fish flakes), Konbu (dried kelp), garlic and ginger.  This is the base for the Dashi, which will surround, but not fully submerge, the perfectly cooked Black Cod & dumplings.  We can’t wait to taste it!

Available in Carpe Vino’s Restaurant or Bar starting @5pm Friday & Saturday night
