New Fall/Winter Menu @ Log Haven
Chef Dave Jones, Sous Chef Todd Hoffee and the Log Haven culinary team have released a sparkling new menu with a number of tempting new dishes for fall & winter.
A terrific new appetizer is Jalapeño Queso Fresco Crab Cakes and in the salad department there’s a Baby Kale Salad on the menu with toasted pecans, smoked cheddar cheese, dried cranberries, and creamy maple dressing.
I loved the clever take on traditional carbonara: Risotto Carbonara with speck, peas, pecorino and egg yolk. Meat lovers will enjoy the Seared Porcini-Crusted Filet with Madeira sauce, mascarpone whipped Yukon potatoes, haricot verts, hazelnuts, pickled currants, and Point Reyes Blue compound butter. There’s also a new Grilled Elk Striploin with spaghetti squash, yam fingerlings, whipped goat cheese, and pomegranate-Port reduction.
Fish and seafood fans will want to check out the Togarashi Seasoned Tuna with pan-fried udon noodles, scallions, chili crisp, tempura Maitake, blistered shishitos, and yuzu ponzu sauce, as well as Chef Jones’ Dill Pressed Salmon with roasted Tokyo turnips, carrot butter broth, beluga lentils, smoked olive vinaigrette, and cow’s milk Feta. In addition, there is a new vegan entree of Stir-Fried Jasmine Rice and Tempeh with kimchi, market vegetables, and cashews, finished with Log Haven’s own blended stir-fry sauce.
