This Weekend at Jake Moon

Greetings from Clarksville

Aw shucks, we finally get winter going strong and then spring unexpectedly arrives early. So what to do for Presidents Week, with everybody off? Join us for breakfast or brunch and at least you can satisfy your outdoor spirit with some country fare that will remind you of winter.

We have added a new section entitled the “Butcher Shop,” a list of breakfast meat features that include local free range pork from Crosby Farm in Berne: Smoked Pork Belly glazed with Maple-Orange Sriracha sauce, House-cured Canadian Bacon, House-ground Fennel Breakfast Sausages, House-cured Salmon Bacon, and, of course, traditional Slab Bacon. All were received with rave reviews. One of the brunch specials this past week, the “Butcher Block Sampler,” included all the items from that new menu--and it will be returning this weekend!

Stick-to-your ribs Hungarian Goulasch, Greek Spinach Pie, Oriental Shrimp and Vegetable Stir Fry, Fresh Rainbow Trout, Crab and Asiago Fritters, and a now almost famous Smoked Pork Chop with Maple Balsamic Glaze are a few of the winter fare items that will welcome you this weekend.

And if you haven't already gotten the word, “Birthday Cake” is a regular dessert menu item, so if the special occasion has arrived, celebrate here with us. You should also keep in mind a new craft brew from Ommegang Brewery in Cooperstown, “Nirvana IPA.” It didn't stay in the house for long, but we are restocked now. Its a real crowd pleaser

And now that we are at that time of year, we have re-named our early dinner offering the “Cabin Fever Special.” Every Thursday and Friday we offer a $10.95 Prix Fixe menu that includes two courses and special wine and beer discounts.

“A Bow and Banjo,” our live music for brunch, will be here again this weekend. We should alert you that a mystery stand-in can be expected!

You're always welcome to visit our Facebook Page. Give us a "like" in order to stay tuned to as-the-weekend-progresses menu enhancements.

We hope to see you soon!
