A New Veggie-centric Bar Menu at 9C

Good morning, it's been a while.

On March 21st I mentioned that I had some news relating to this blog and working at 9th & Coles Tavern. Well, just over three weeks ago I started to help launch (under the radar and without sounding the trumpets and rallying the troops) a new, primarily vegetarian bar menu.

Some images of the food we've been doing below.

Meatless Monday, 9th & Coles Tavern, February 29, 2016

I'm about to head over to the restaurant in order to start prepping for tonight's meal. It should be a good one! In the walk-in, there are some ripe delicata squash that I plan on turning into a creamy soup, topped with a piece of garlic toast and some toasted pumpkin seeds. The second course will be deep fried Brussels sprouts and chickpeas tossed in chives, sesame seeds, and a little bit of honey, giving them a savory/sweet flavor (some customers refer to them as "9C Crack"). The third course will be roasted-root-vegetable tacos served with some traditional red cabbage slaw and an amazing salsa verde, made by my colleague who will joining me in the kitchen, Felicito. Finally, a bowl of pasta with olives, capers, spinach, and Parmesan tossed in a homemade broth and olive oil—a "white puttanesca" if you will.

It is possible to get individual items or you can just get the entire tasting for 30 bucks. See you there!
