Supportive, adoptive, step-, deceased, estranged, working, stay-at-home, long-distance, unconditional loving and caring; whatever the case may be or you have the perfect mother image in your mind, we can all agree that we all had a mom whom we can thank for giving us life. Although each situation is unique, good moms give you happiness, bad moms give you experience, even the worst moms give you lessons, and the best moms give you memories. Because moms have various abilities, skills and challenges, there are hundreds of “mom-isms” out there. The most overused cliché that is pre-loaded with meaning is...... “like mama used to make”. There is an assumption that your mom could even cook and that nobody could cook better than her. But those that did, mostly did so out of love and not duty. No matter who your mom is — whether she’s even a good cook or not — the food she makes will always be memorable. Even if you can’t stand her potato salad, you can’t help but feel like you’re at home every time she offers you some. Whatever your mom made, it carries a certain taste of nostalgia. Most of us have probably experienced intense cravings for dishes that our mom used to make.
Chef Kevin has been conducting an informal survey in respect to the thoughts and memories of our customers, considering he can’t get past the memory of Poor Man’s Stew his mom used to make...Wait, What??? Simple comfort food, leftovers giving mom an extra hour in the day, and the two choices: take it or leave it....pass muster with this mom. This upbringing more than likely imbued him to become a chef. Although that bowl of cereal sometimes just hits the spot.
So now, we are hoping your favorite thing to make for dinner is reservations. May 14. Check out the “LIKE MAMA USED TO MAKE” menu and give us a shout. The best part that will please you and mama alike, is that this month will be at the incredible price of $40 per person which includes this 5-course meal and one beverage.
