This Weekend at Jake Moon

Greetings from Clarksville

If you are headed out to the Altamont Fair this weekend, think about joining us on your way out or back--we make a perfect dining reprieve from that fair food! We are getting excited around here about the the eclipse on Monday--you know our connection to matters of the moon. Too bad we won't be open to celebrate it with some signature brunch or dinner feature, but keep your eyes safe please. If you aren't a listener already, tune into WEQX radio this week out of Manchester as we start an on air presence with radio DJ Kim Neaton, with some creative messages created by her and the chef.

We haven't complained about the critters ravaging our garden because they quite simply haven't touched us. We will be supplying most of the menu's produce from our growing space this week, including some beautiful bi-color sweet corn. It's the first time we've had so much escarole, that premium green for sauteing and soups, as well as green beans, loads of Swiss chard (chef's favorite), and squash in all sizes and colors. Leeks are very early this year, 1.5 to 2 inches thick, and we also have some beautiful red Bermuda onions. All of this lush growth is in part the result of our toil all year carting edible food scraps, coffee grounds, and tons of egg shells--to name a few of the items we process--to compost and nourish the soil without any help from chemicals.

Fresh lobsters will continue to flow until Labor Day weekend, so there is still time to escape to a coastal state of dining. Equally popular, the Fresh Picked Lobster Rolls don't stay in the house very long, so be advised. Don't forget the New England Clam Bake, which is also quite popular.

"A Bow and Banjo," our live music for brunch, will be here. They play every Sunday from 11:00-1:00 pm, and, weather permitting, they may play outdoors.

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.

Hope to see you soon!
