Yes, it’s true–we have some NEW menu items straight from the creative culinary mind of Chef Michael G. Smith’s himself. Just to make sure everything is tasting and looking up to par, I’ve decided to EAT IT.
With so many exciting dishes to try, I finally settled on the new vegetarian-friendly, Grilled Panelle & Cheese Sandwich made with Gruyere cheese, caramelized zucchini and Indian-spiced pickled eggplant (12).
Panelle, I found out, is a Sicilian-inspired fritter made from chickpea flour. Smothering the fritter-y goodness of the panelle with Gruyere and sweet, caramelized zucchini and putting it between 2 slices of bread definitely has me rolling out the “welcome to the menu” mat.
