Rum + Risotto Mondays: Jan-Feb 2018

Each year, we offer something fun and different on Monday nights in January and February, in an effort to combat the cold and winter blues. In years past, we have done Salbute + Sangria Mondays, Tamale + Tequila Mondays and Margarita + Burrito Mondays. This coming January and February, we’ll have Rum + Risotto Mondays. Aged rums have become the new sexy spirit on the coasts, so we want to play with several different ones. For bourbon drinkers, aged rum has parallel flavors (they are aged in oak barrels) with just a bit of sweetness on the finish. Each country in the Caribbean has their own unique approach to making their the spirit, so we are exploring rums from Jamaica, Barbados & Guyana. We will offer entrées with risotto as the core ingredient, paired with meats, fish and vegetables. We think this may be our best combo yet, so check out the menu and schedule your calendar accordingly!
