Every state in the union has its own traditional and soul-satisfying foods. West Town Tavern is excited to present our new Heartland Suppers guaranteed to fill your soul with warm, comforting memories of family and home. These four dishes all come from Chef Susan’s heart and her Heartland home. Each plate is firmly rooted in tradition with some contemporary flavors to make the old new again.
MONDAY: FRIED CHICKEN DINNER
with Garlicky Mashed Potatoes, Sauteed Chard and Chef Susan's Great-Grandmother's Buttermilk Biscuit with Wild Mushroom Gravy. Perfect with Fried Chicken? A glass of Duval-Leroy Brut Champagne, of course!
TUESDAY: STATE FAIR PORK TENDERLOIN SANDWICH
Our State Fair Pork Tenderloin Sandwich comes on s housemade bun with grilled portobello, avocado, slaw and chipotle mayo. A handful of fresh-cut fries is essential. The moist pork tenderloin is available breaded or grilled and the sandwich makes a tasty vegetarian offering as well by leaving off the pork and doubling up on the portobello. Sip a glass of 2010 Walnut City Wineworks Pinot Gris.
WEDNESDAY: BARBECUED TURKEY MEATLOAF
with Tavern Mac ‘n Cheese and Lemon-Garlic Green Beans. We make the mac ‘n cheese unique by stirring in our Tavern Beer Cheese and sprinkling on a crunchy cornbread topping before blasting it in the oven. We suggest a glass of 2010 Ricardo Santos Malbec.
THURSDAY: NON-DENOMINATIONAL FISH FRY
featuring Great Lakes Perch with Apple-Fennel Slaw, Shrimp-Studded Hushpuppies and Chipotle Vinaigrette. Everyone has a fish-fry memory and these delicate perch fillets are sure to bring it back. A glass of 2011 Paul Cluver Gewurztraminer adds spicy, floral notes that complement the dish.
