More Fall updates!

Fall truly has arrived...and we couldn't be happier!  Whidbey Island is absolutely LOVELY this time of year, and there are many events happening over the next few months to make Langley an ideal fall destination.  Be sure to follow the Langley Main Street Association's facebook page to see everything coming up!  And look for a Langley feature in November's Sunset magazine if you need more convincing.

enjoying the cassoulet last year, Joel especially so...
We are very excited about our new menu rolling out next week...look for old favorites such as raclette, french onion soup, ouefs en meurette, and tarte flambe.  And new items for us such as lobster bisque, duck gizzards, wild boar ragout, coquilles st. jacques and a few other surprises.  Our plats du jour will be changing, most notable, cassoulet will be served every Thursday night!  We are thrilled to announce that we are now baking our own sandwich bread in house and will be changing the preparations of some of our favorite standard sandwiches.  For example, the croque monsieur will become a more fork and knife, drenched in bechamel croque with ham cured in house.  Add a fried egg to that for a croque madame and...instant hangover cure!  
Additionally all our pastas and ice creams will now be made in house as we've brought on a pastry cook/baker, so that also means a growing pastry program. 

We are again in the running for King 5's Best of the Northwest in the best outdoor dining category...we would LOVE to get your vote.  We are currently ranked 4th behind Salty's and Ray's, and with only a few days left of voting, we are hoping to sneak into a higher ranking. Thanks so much for the support!

BORDEAUX WINE DINNER - on November 9th we will be offering a 6 course, wine paired dinner featuring wines from the Bordeaux region of France.  Seatings are staggered between 5:30-8:00 and the cost is $85/person.  Please call 360 221 4060 or email soon to secure your spot, we anticipate selling out quickly.


Here's a little blurb about Bordeaux and the dinner from Sieb: "Situated on the western coast of central France, surrounding the massive Gironde Estuary and the Garonne and Dordogne rivers that flow into it, Bordeaux is the wine capital of the world. Every year, over 700 million bottles of Bordeaux are produced, ranging from everyday table wine to the most expensive wine the world offers. It is also home to some of the wine world’s most famous estates: Lafite Rothschild, Latour, Haut Brion, Mouton Rothschild, Margaux, Petrus, Ausone, Cheval Blanc and Yquem, to name a few.  With its Atlantic ocean coastline fish and shellfish abound, but Bordeaux is carnivore country and its most celebrated dish is entrecĂ´te marchand de vin, also called entrecote a la bordelaise, a world known dish of rib steak cooked in a rich gravy made from Bordeaux wine, butter, shallots, herbs and bone marrow (this may or may not be on the menu for this dinner). The wines range from sparkling cremants, to sauvignon blanc and Semillon based whites which range from crisp and simple to more viscous and complex. The reds range from merlot based right bank wines to more cabernet driven left bank wines. And finally one of the great sweet wines of the world, sauternes. I will be tasting through many of these wines, taking extensive tasting notes and building a six course menu with dishes that will intertwine with the flavors and spirit of the wines."
