WHOA – Pictures just don’t do justice for the shear enormity of these decadent beef ribs…aka “DINO BONES.”  Also, known as the “Plate Short Ribs” (diagram below) they are the biggest, meatiest beef ribs, with one single rib tipping the scales at 1 – 2.5 lbs PER RIB!   Pitmaster Spencer Smith will be smoking these gargantuan bones, smothered in salt, pepper and mesquite seasoning, over oak for seven hours.  We only have a limited amount of “Dino Bones,” TONIGHT ONLY, available at 5pm both in the bar & dining room.

This has been a hit and now it’s your turn to check it out!!!  Over the past three weeks Carpe Vino’s “Tuesday Prix-Fixe” menu has received overwhelming fanfare!   Why wouldn’t it be when you can construct your custom three-course prix-fixe menu by selecting one starter, entrée and dessert which are designated by an asterisk (*).   For $38/person++ (beverages/tax/gratuity not included) this is absolutely one of the best deals in town.  The “Tuesday Prix-Fixe” options will change as Chefs Tim Dube and Olivia Poulos introduce or modify menu items.  This is an extraordinary value for a mid-week alternative from cooking at home…as we cordially invite you into ours!  Remember, ALA CARTE OPTIONS ARE STILL AVAILABLE!!!  

Tuesday Prix-Fixe” is available both in the bar and restaurant starting at 5pm.  All menu items listed with or without an asterisk are available ala carte.  Substitutions and or splitting is politely declined.
