Please specify in order comments if you'd like spicy and sour BBQ beef specifically, or a chef's choice of vegetarian dishes. Each item ordered is $20 - if it is BBQ beef, you'll receive 2-3 servings for the $20 price (depending on appetite) and if it is a vegetarian dish you'll receive 3-4 servings, so as you can see this is a significant discount over regular menu prices!

It's the end of tomato season, and the time when tomatoes are at their finest - for a fleeting moment! This means this acclaimed salad is back for its encore performance of the year. Toasted house made parmesan croutons, fresh basil, parsley, and mint, cucumber, summer tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, sweet onions, and balsamic olive oil dressing, on a bed of arugula, with an avocado for slicing. It's all tossed together shortly before serving so the bread is still a bit crunchy but saturated with dressing. Refreshing, delicious and full of summer flavor. Order without the bread and/or mozzarella for delightful summer tomato basil salad if you're gluten and/or dairy free. Topped with succulent grilled steak unless you request vegetarian. White beans can be added to the vegetarian version upon request. This salad is also wonderful accompanied by the grilled chicken if you prefer that to steak.
