Our Blue Plate Special this week is one of my favorite comfort foods, Chicken Ala King, served over homemade biscuits. It is something that I remember my grandmother making years ago, as it was quite popular in the early part of the last century. Made with chunks of chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce and flavored with sherry, it is never out of style.
Halibut with Cognac Cream Sauce over Angel Hair Pasta is a featured special this week at Ten Depot Street, starting tonight. Created by our chef, Bill Monda, this is a delicious way to prepare Alaskan halibut. Every time we served this amazing dish, we have rave reviews from our customers.
Wednesday October 31, is our annual Halloween Party with Bag of Hammers, featuring Holly Sorensen.
