Dinner at Graze

Barrel Tasting Weekend Saturday Night December 5th, Graze (look at all those capitals) will host its first dinner... ever.  For three years we have been schlepping our stuff to wineries, houses, and fields.  This time we are home.

Join us for dinner.  We can seat around 24.  Arrive at 6:15, share a glass of bubbly and a few appetizers, dinner to start in a timely fashion thereafter.  Menu goes something like this: bi-colored soup, white and purple salad, something that went baaaaa, and dessert from the Colville Street Patisserie. (menu accomodations made if possible.)

Price: $50 a person, beer and wine not included, wines promise to be yummy and attractively priced.  All guests seated family style, bring good cheer and conviviality, if you bring wine corkage is $10 and sharing will be... expected?... required?... who wouldn't want to share with so many new friends?

Here we go

Ok, practice week is over.  Guess its the real deal Monday.  Three days of practice in our new space has done wonders.  We may not be the quickest kids on the block yet, but we'll get there. 

A few notes on the menu.  The pastrami is very good... so good I can't even really work out how we can make it much better... and that kind of bothers me (this pastrami thing has become an obsession, anything that takes twenty-some days to cure gets under your skin).  The meatballs make me happy, as they did to the couple of new yorkers who stopped in the other day.  I want to eat the chimichurri sauce for the flank steak on nearly everything.  And thank goodness Becca made a beautiful little roasted pear salad at home a few weeks back... its my favorite adding grilled chicken; a lovely light lunch.  If there is a better condiment to place on a sandwich than Mama Lils Peppers I would like to eat it.  And the silly paninis we served at the farmer's market the last couple of years are still mighty tasty. 

All in all I think it is a place I would like to eat at (hope you feel the same)... now if I could only find some time to sit down and do that I will be a very happy man.

Open... kind of

We opened Monday for delivery.  Did three orders.  The most panicked and frightened three orders you could possibly see put together.  I do weddings for 250, wine dinners for 50, appetizers for hundreds... three orders freaked me/us out.  Tuesday was calmer and did 18 or so.  Wednesday we moved all our stuff from the catering kitchen to the storefront so everything has a home at least, and a sense of calm set in. 

This morning we will walk in and it should resemble 'a normal, what everyday should look like', day.  We may even let a person or two walk in and order.  Monday is the official open day.  Woo hoo.
