Holiday Merriment at Paul Martin’s
From now until January 3, plan a night out to try their holiday selections of Southern Fried Game Hen, Linguine and Clams and Grilled Lamb Sirloin. If those dishes don’t tempt you, their traditional dinner menu offers many delectable choices for every craving, anytime of year.
My top three menu items ran the gamut from sweet to savory. To start, a must try is the Jack Martin, a classic 1920s inspired cocktail, muddled with Italian Amaretto, sweet cherries, lemon juice and shaken with a smooth blended brandy. Next were the Salt and Pepper Prawns, buttermilk battered and paired with a zesty pesto aioli dipping sauce. Following my entrée, I rounded out the meal with a decadent piece of Devil’s Food Cake with rich ganache, cherries and fresh whipped cream.
Besides the ambiance and great service, the best part of Paul Martin’s American Grill is their motto to bring fresh, seasonal, and local selections to the menu, making each dish from scratch every day. Pressing even further with our server, Eric, this philosophy also means they pride themselves on not using pre-made sauces or frozen ingredients, and they select only the freshest raw ingredients to start, which includes 100% natural meats, sustainable seafood, and seasonal produce in every dish. This is a mantra close to our hearts and worth sharing.
Next time, I’ll plan to pop over for happy hour or to try their Monday Wine Dinner, a great deal for two at $49 including a bottle of wine.
