The latest restaurant to open with quick public approval is Scotch and Sausage. With a name like that you best have plenty of both, and they do. Look for 20 hand crafted sausages and over 100 choices for scotch. Add a few extras such as their insanely good triple cooked fries and scotch eggs, and you have a recipe for delicious.
The menu offers over 20 varieties of local and house-made sausage sandwiches (including several vegan, pork free and gluten free options) featuring beef, chicken, venison, quail, antelope and more, and all sausages are priced $8 and below. They are all-natural, small batch production with no by products. The sausages not made in house are produced locally at Kuby’s using the Scotch and Sausage recipes. Continue reading

It is almost that time of year when we all think of bikini’s, beach and sun. The weather is starting to be a more consistent breeze with a splash fun, and many are turning to lighter fare. Most restaurants now have at least a vegetarian option, and almost all can do a vegan plate of some sort. The truly interesting restaurants can make either of these options a delight even for the most committed omnivore. Bolsa succeeds at the latter.
Look no further than the Baby Artichoke & Goat Cheese Gnocchi which is served with heirloom tomatoes, spinach and a tomato-mint sauce. This dish is amazingly light and refreshing – and addictive. Pair this with one of their wonderful signature cocktails, and you will have a meal that transcends nature itself. Continue reading
