We're back from Italy

Our first native produce of the season from organic gardener Joan Burns, gives us zucchini flowers, grilled native vegetable pizza, and a pasta featuring grilled zucchini summer squash, cherry tomatoes, and Liuzzi's fresh ricotta.


Beautiful salmon arrived today and Linda picked more native strawberries at Scott's Farm for her great strawberry shortcake.


Join us this weekend to celebrate these arrivals.
