Hello Everyone...

We have more items than usual on the menu this week.  Some repeats from last week and some new dishes.  We are offering Bangers & Mash, aka Sausages and Mashed Potatoes by popular demand.  These are served with an English onion gravy and a version of Mushy Peas.  We also have a new Shrimp and Pasta dish which includes sugar snap peas, cremini mushrooms, and red pepper in a garlic butter sauce.

I had planned to offer USDA Choice Filet Mignon this week, but when the filets arrived, they were not Choice but smaller, leaner meat.  I cut these into steaks myself, and they are small but thick.  I had one for dinner tonight, and it had a good flavour.  For this first week, I am counting them as a kitchen experiment, and we are serving them with a bistro pan sauce, a vegetable kebab, and a baked potato with sour cream.  Not a bad dinner, although not what I had been hoping for.  The price is right at just $15.95.  USDA Choice Filet Mignon would sell for nearly twice that amount...

We’ve been developing our salads.  We still have the dinner salad with homemade dressings for just $2.95 and well worth the price, but we have added a Greek Salad and new this week, a Leafy Green Salad with our new homemade blue cheese dressing.  Simon used to love to eat this dressing spread on fresh bread.  I had conceived it as an accompaniment for the USDA filet mignon.  We will get the two of them together another time, but this week, you can enjoy the salad with any dish of your choice.

Zoe has enjoyed waiting on bar customers, and she loves mixing drinks.  We offered Pimm’s Cup last week for the first time this year, but we had to substitute a couple of ingredients.  This week we will have the proper fizzy lemonade for it, and I suggested a slightly different recipe.  If you missed out on it last week, I feel sure you will have an even better drink this week.

If you have been dining regularly, you realize that The Coventry Inn is developing.  We still have a ways to go, but we have advanced considerably from last summer when we served only English Teas on Fridays.  I hope you can stop by this week.  I think we can offer you a very pleasant evening...

Your friend, 
Charles A. Runyan
