Dear Restaurant Customer...

The summer is passing quickly, and August 16th, 17th, and 18th are the dates for our annual British car show, held in partnership with The Roadster Factory.  For the British car show, The Coventry Inn has the responsibility of hosting Afternoon Tea next Friday for the car show participants and of catering a pig roast for more than one-hundred people under a tent at The Roadster Factory in Armagh, Pa.  Thus, we will be serving dinner to the public on Friday, August 10th, but we will be closed on August 17th, and we will not be back on our regular schedule again until the 24th...

For this week, we have continued to develop our menu with more seafood, a new salad, and a new dessert.  Our Pecan-Crusted Swordfish was added last week, and it was the best seller, receiving some nice comments.  This week, we have added Black Pepper Shrimp as a Small Plate and Maryland Crab Cakes as either a Small Plate or a Pub Dinner.  The “new” salad is one we have used during the summer in other years, consisting of thin ribbons of zucchini with Feta, ripe tomato, red onion, Kalamata olives, and pine nuts tossed with a garlic and herb vinaigrette.  It has been a couple of years since we last served that salad, but I am remembering it fondly.  The new dessert is banana cream pie.  I found the recipe while looking through an old issue of a Food & Wine Cookbook.  I read recipes for fun, and this one sounded so good that I brought it to Darlene’s attention.

We are continuing to develop our steak grilling skills in the kitchen, and the “Petite Steak” was our second best seller last week.  For variety, we are also offering steak “au poivre,” which means the steak is lightly crusted on one side with crushed black peppercorns, and it is served with a brandy cream sauce.  This is also very good without the peppercorns.

For variety, we are also serving a stuffed green bell pepper as a pub dinner, and we have temporarily switched our burger to a new presentation.  It is served on an onion bagel with barbecue sauce, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, and “onion crunchies.”  Several guests had nice comments about this “Barbecue Burger” last week, and we have kept it again this week.

Although The Coventry Inn is open only one day each week, you can tell from our offerings that we are conscientiously attempting to offer excellence to our customers.  Bring a couple of friends, and enjoy our English pub ambience for a great evening out in Downtown Indiana...

Your friend,
Charles A. Runyan
