Wedged Romaine Salad,
plus Stuffed Poblanos

by Josh Theisinger

Wedged Romaine Salad
You asked, we listened. It's back... the wedged romaine salad is making a return appearance on our menu! I probably don't even have to describe what this dish is for some of you, but for the rest of you newcomers, it's one of our classic Uptown dishes.

It was on our menu for years, and when we switched our menu to a tablet style, we decided we were due for some new variety. Much to the dismay of some customers, this dish didn't make the cut... and only because we wanted to get edgy with our new menu presentation. So never fear, this salad has made its triumphant return!

We take a half a wedge of romaine and top it with Gorgonzola cheese, toasted pinenuts, cherry tomatoes, a little bit of egg, and some freshly sliced red onion rings. Served with our housemade creamy Gorgonzola dressing, this dish is simple, healthy, and classic.

We're kickin it old school, and you're the first to help us bring it back into style!

Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Another blast from the past is our stuffed poblano peppers. Our chefs fire roast poblano peppers and stuff them full with marinated smoked shrimp, black beans, and roasted deal caribe cheese.

They are then smothered in a housemade tomatillo salsa and surrounded by freshly fried corn tortilla chips. It's a perfect south of the border snack that pairs with any one of Uptown's unique margaritas!
