Quiche + Soup + Salad

by Megan Considine

What do the following items have in common: animal print, big sunglasses, button-up shirts, boots, denim jackets, high-waisted pants, leather jackets, leggings, mini skirts, and quiche?

All are 80s trends that have recently come back around... yes even the quiche.

Quiche is a savory, open-faced pastry crust with a filling of custard. The custard is usually made up of cheese, meat, seafood and/or vegetables. Quite versatile, it can be served hot or cold and can be used as a separate entree, as party food, or as a pairing to another dish.

Food critics claim that quiche “lost its way” for a while. Overdone in the 80s and overused for catered affairs, quiche is just now coming back to restaurants.

This happens with all trends though, and some come back around while others simply remain a thing of the past. If leggings can survive... so can quiche! Certainly undeserving of a bleak future, quiche - when done correctly - is a beautiful thing.

We welcome it back to our menu in the form of our Quiche-Mesculyn Salad Combo. We've played by the rules when preparing our quiche: it comes with applewood smoked bacon, housemade asparagus and leeks.

We offer a smaller version of our mesculyn salad (spring greens, dried fig, glazed walnut, and gorgonzola cheese) and serve it on the same tray. We also make room for a cup of our soup of the day... hot or cold. This classic dish is paired with enough variety to keep your taste buds interested and your belly full.

Despite making its first appearance on our daily menu in quite some time, quiche has long been a mainstay on our banquet menu! It is always a hit and a popular option for the showers, parties and functions we host in our banquet room.

Speaking of which... you may have heard we are remodeling. Our banquet room was pegged for the first phase of updates. Completely renovated and gorgeous, it's been finished for several weeks now.

We are very fortunate that we have not yet had to close or disrupt any banquets or daily operations. For those who have been weary about booking with us due to construction, cast your worries aside. We still have the same great banquet options AND a new and improved room!

Consider us for your next baby shower, bridal shower, business meeting, anniversary party or retirement party. Whether you've hosted here before or you're just excited to check out the new digs and give our quiche a try, give us a call today!

We are always happy to answer your questions and are prepared to assist in any way we can.
