With the arrival of summer it’s time to make many seasonal menu changes. This year we have a new source of inspiration – the produce grown across the street at Chester Creek Gardens. Developed by Café co-owner, Carla Blumberg, the garden is part of a project that includes new spaces for living, professional offices, and retail, in addition to the specialty vegetables and greens available at perfect ripeness! A new Café salad mix has been planted that features hon tsai tai, mizuna, tot soy, red mustard, kale, and wild arugula. The mix has more aggressive flavors than mixed sweet baby greens and will support more flavorful dressings. The new Café salad mix should be available in June. We’re making final critiques on new menu items and and excited to launch the new menu in early June.
The roof top bee hives are back in place, and the garden beds, outdoor deck, and sidewalk seating are ready for summer use.
