The Hao Chi Food Club just had its June gathering there. By all accounts it was deliciously received. Chef Maggie definitely gave us a food lover’s treat.
We started with bruschetta, salad, and potato au gratin appetizers. Then the huge cut of NY Strip steak done medium-rare served with roasted potatos had by most of the guests. For the other entree, a fresh thin grouper type of fish was served over a bed of super creamy mashed potatos and spinach. Dessert was coffee/tea and creme brulee. Wine served was the Frontera, a Chilean by Concha y Toro, that’s gotten very nice reviews.
A sampling of her menu:
- Lunch time there’s about 10 different set meals to choose from
- Special home made pita
-Roast Chicken w/ walnuts and cranberries
-Smoked Salmon with wine sauce
- Classic menu:
- Tenderloin cut steak (her best signature dish)
- Lamb chops (customer favorite)
- Seafood catch of the day
- Drinks: Carlsberg and Heineken. Wine selection is large, more than half a dozen offerings - Californian red & whites from Kendall Jackson/Columbia Crest, Chile and Argentina
Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves there, the food and the warm decor. Service was attentive. Much thanks to Maggie and her staff for hosting the Hao Chi Food Club. We’ll be back. :bravo: :bravo:
