new hours, new menus

hey, here's what's new this week --

- we've set our hours for the new place.

having the extra prep space & the lounge gives us better flexibility, so we'll be keeping part of the room open with a smaller menu during the afternoons & later into the evening. we'll also start opening earlier on the weekends with some breakfast-oriented items on the menu as well as our standard lunch stuff. and, we're going to add sundays & monday nights.

here's the schedule:

lunch monday - friday, 11:30 - 2:30 lounge appetizers 3:00 - 5:00

saturday-sunday, 9:00 - 3:00

dinner monday - saturday, 5:00 - 10:00 sunday 4:00 - 7:00

if we schedule special events like wine dinnners, maybe we'll mostly do them on sundays

- we've drafted lunch & dinner menus for opening.

i'm not savvy enough to figure out how to upload them onto this blog, but i've hung copies outside the restaurant & sent copies to tom to post on the website. if you see me out around town, pretty much anywhere but in the sauna, i'm probably carrying a marked-up copy i can show you.

we like it. having more equipment may not be so damn cute as before, but it opens up a lot more menu possibilities. the oyster sandwich comes back, the range of salads & appetizers is bigger & we're reintroducing entrees to the lunch menu. of course we're keeping the catfish & tuna sandwiches (going back to ahi tuna) but now we can also serve a lamb burger from don & joe's meats. we've also decided to make the commitment to serving humanely-treated, hormone-free animals & sustainable fish. i think pigs are pretty cool, but i still like eating them.

so it goes. it's good talking at you -- i kind of feel like a radio dj, hoping someone's out there listening. we've actually been sitting idle for a couple of weeks for various reasons but we should be swinging back into the loop this week -- as soon as i have a newly-estimated timeline, i'll share it. believe me, i am looking forward to seeing you all. well, maybe not you, peter.

enjoy the sun while we've got it.

Looking forward to the opening. We miss the food, the people and the atmosphere. Congratulations on the renovation. Matt's is a special place and I am sure the extra space will not change that --just allow more people to enjoy the experience.

Basically I check back once a week. Because more than that would be embarassing.
We are on the edge of our seats. May 18 is next week, doesn't sound like you'll make it, but it's on my calendar just the same.
I'm really excited about brunch too. Mmmm.
