~ Smoked Chicken Lollipops Tonight
~ Crispy Pork Belly – WEEKEND SPECIAL
~ Rey Campero MEZCAL Tasting – 9/20, 6-8PM
~ 2nd Saturday CV MEMBER Tasting & Wine Pick-up

smoked chicken lollipops

This is a meal!  Seriously, there is enough chicken in this dish to satisfy the hunger of a BUCCANEER (like that Thursday Night Football reference)!!!  For TEN BUCKS. this is an absolute steal.  In fact, the other day, in a pinch, we bought two chicken sandwiches, no sides, one large drink, from a (hate to say it) fast food chain and out-the-door the cost was almost $15.  Really, really makes you think….

Yesterday, Chef Tim Dube first frenched, then brined these babies in “shred spice,” herbs, garlic and lemons!  Today, these 3-wings-per-order (smoked to perfection) come w/ house wing sauce, Point Reyes Blue Cheese dip, celery and carrots!  – $10

Available in the Carpe Vino Bar or Restaurant at 5pm (until sold out).  PBR not included.

crispy pork belly


weekend special (friday – saturday)

(10 orders available)

PORK BELLY!  Just when you thought bacon couldn’t get any better.  PORK BELLY!  Definitely on our TOP 10 list of MUST HAVE ingredients in the culinary world.  PORK BELLY!  It’s a must!

Chef Tim Dube wanted to highlight our first offering this season of golden delicious apples from APPLE HILL and PORK BELLY was the perfect vessel.  The main star, a crispy soy braised pork belly, lays upon a bed of puree of earl grey tea smoked golden delicious apple and celery root.  The dish is finished with tamarind caramel and sunflower greens.

Available in the Carpe Vino Bar or Restaurant (Friday & Saturday) at 5pm (until sold out).
