We welcome guests for dine-in Wednesday through Saturday from 5:30 to 9 pm.  Click the

Menu tab at the top of the page to see our regular menu, or scroll down to see our

specials this week.  We have a nice selection of beers and wines to accompany our food.

Reservations are ONLY accepted for parties of 7 or more. There are

many smaller tables that are only used for our walk-in patrons.

 

Please note: Keri begins taking orders by phone for contactless "Keri-out" when she arrives at 2 or 3 pm, so if you call before then and leave a message,  expect a callback around 3 pm. Ordering early helps the kitchen staff to plan and prepare for your order, so, when you can, please order early! (You may pick up your order at a time you choose, between 5  and 8:30 pm.) The number to call is the restaurant's land line: (740) 594-3800. If it rings busy, we are fielding other calls to those who have left a voicemail.  Please don't continue calling over and over; we can't retrieve our voicemails while you are doing that. . We do not call back unless we are responding to your voicemail, so please do leave a simple message with your name and callback number!

Specials July 10-13.jpg

SOUP: SPICY CORN AND COCONUT

Fresh local sweet corn, with green onions, jalapeno peppers, ginger, garlic, coconut milk and a little lime juice, Cup 6, bowl 9

POTATO GNOCCHI WITH BEEF RAGU

Beef braised with red wine, garlic, onions, tomatoes and locally grown Pioppino mushrooms makes a great pairing with our tender house-made potato gnocchi.  We’ll add a side of sautéed summer squashes and some crusty bread.  29

GRILLED PEACH AND CHICKEN SALAD

It’s only here in the summer, folks, so get it while you can! Grilled chicken breast and grilled balsamic-glazed peaches, with crumbled gorgonzola and toasted walnuts on romaine lettuce. We’ll serve it with our house-made honey balsamic dressing on the side.  25

GNOCCHI WITH GORGONZOLA AND WALNUTS

A classic presentation of our house-made potato gnocchi in a Gorgonzola cheese sauce with walnuts, topped with sizzled sage leaves.  We’ll serve the dish with a side of sautéed local summer squashes and some crusty bread.  27

FEATURED VEGETABLE: sautéed yellow and green zucchini with garlic and fresh basil

SPECIAL DESSERT: MOROCCAN MINT AND HONEY CAKE

I just stumbled across the recipe for this cake, which we made at Salaam years ago! This fabulous cake made with shredded coconut is drizzled while warm with a syrup made with lots of fresh mint, then returned to the oven to brown the butter, honey and sliced almond topping. It’s so good!  8

ORDERING for CONTACTLESS PICKUP

You may order specials or regular menu items for pickup until 8:30, and can phone in your order as early as 2:00 pm for your choice of pickup time starting at 5:00. (Ordering early helps us with workflow in the kitchen and is always appreciated! DO leave a voicemail; we will call  you back in the order that calls are received.) You are welcome to pay by phone (use the restaurant number: 740-594-3800) and take advantage of our contactless pickup in the REAR of the restaurant.  To do this, please proceed in the direction of travel on South Congress Street. Don't turn left onto Washington Street... just pass it and then turn left to enter the parking lot behind the restaurant.  You will see  a big blue shelf unit on our rear patio, where we will place your bags of food as soon as they are ready. No need to call when picking up, unless there's a problem with your order.
