New Salads for Weekday Lunch


We’ve added two new salads to our Weekday Lunch menu – a couple of dishes we’ve been perfecting over recent weeks. These salads back up the thinking that “our salads are about the stuff!” (as in, they’re not just a lotta lettuce).

Blackened Whitefish Salad features Great Lakes whitefish, blackened, on top of mixed greens, gorgonzola, oven-dried tomatoes, red onion, French beans (or haricot verts, if you’re really French) and, best of all, shoestring potatoes. We love this salad not only because it fits with our Upper Midwest-style of serving all freshwater fish, but also because it’s a big ol’ piece of the fish!

Smoked Duck & Peach Salad continues some of the fun we had during Peach WeekWe cure and smoke Maple Leaf Farms duck breast. It’s sliced and served next to charred Georgia peaches, mixed greens, maple-glazed pecans, and goat cheese, and tossed with orange vinaigrette. Georgia peaches certainly aren’t from our part of the country, but we source for the best quality first. If you’ve never had a Georgia peach, you gotta try this salad to see why they’re the best of the best. This salad is available on our Weekday Lunch, Happy Hour, and Dinner menus. NOTE: We’ve run through all the beautiful peaches, so this salad now features White White Poached Pears.

Weekday Lunch is served Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Our latest Weekday Lunch & Weekend Brunch menus can be seen here.
