FirstFridayFoodFF Dessert

March's First Friday Dinner
will feature several courses served both
individually and family style.


Start with some preferred artisinal cheeses selected by our
charcutier, Leah Mojer.

Continue with FreeBird chicken, leek, and tarragon soup.

Our own organic greens are producing very well, so we will feature greens that are picked the day of the dinner in a salad with dried cranberries, glazed cashews, and a shallot vinaigrette.

Marry-Me mashed potatoes, grilled veggies, mushroom-crusted filet of beef tenderloin and homemade tomato pasta with fresh basil and artichokes, herbs and feta will be passed.

And to top it all off, dessert includes a chocolate platter, cookie, brownie, truffle, strawberry and port.
The doors to the Hayloft open at 6pm,
with dinner served promptly at 6:30.
Special March Madness Price is $45 per person.
Gratuity is included

We have to say, Bartlett's Grilled Cheese Invitational is
NOT the original!
The originator of the national event, Tim Walker,
has given us his blessing to hold our own version of the wacky event!

The Bartlett's event is not nearly as wacky as his though.

The 2nd 8th annual (yes, you read that right) Original Grilled Cheese Invitational will take place on April 11 in Los Angeles, CA. To see more about this event, click here!

Succulent Citrus!
Kishu Mandarins
They are the size of a walnut, seedless, easy to peel, with a very high natural sugar content.
The perfect lunchbox treat!
Minneola Oranges

Nicknamed "Honeybell" because of its bell shape, the Minneola is a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. Its large size and slightly elongated "neck" make it easy to recognize. The most popular of the tangelos, seedless Minneolas are brimming with sweetly tart juice.

Clemenvilla Mandarins
The thin rind is a distinctive reddish-orange and is easily peeled to yield a fine textured, dark orange flesh. The fruit is juicy with a sweet, rich flavor that makes a wonderful juice either in combination with other varieties or on its own.

Find them all in the produce case!
