Don't Miss Specials

DON’T MISS SPECIALS There’s a handful of fantastic new specials on the menu at Royal Oak’s Bistro 82 (401 S. Lafayette Ave.) just in time for fall. Executive Chef Derik Watson has revamped some guest favorites with seasonal flavors that pair perfectly with its ever-growing wine program. How he made the time to invent these amazing new dishes I’ll never know, as Derik is also now serving as the executive chef at AFB Hospital Group’s new sister restaurant, The Morrie. Hitting the menu is a new carrot salad, which features roasted carrots with a hickory-smoke vinaigrette, buttermilk pudding and a dehydrated pickled shallot — the dish is both vegetarian and gluten-free. The Scottish salmon is now paired with a vanilla beet puree, baby turnips, baby beets, frisee and shishito peppers. One of my favorite dishes is their roasted cobia, which, for the season, is paired with a phenomenal butternut parmesan risotto, edamame, maitake mushrooms and baby kale. Finally, don’t miss the sea scallop served with a chestnut puree, radicchio, apple, salisfy, cranberry coulis and white chocolate. Enjoy any (or better yet all) of these truly elegant dishes on a Wednesday night with any bottle of wine regularly priced at $100 or less for half-off. Its $25 filet and cabernet pairing every Tuesday is also a total steal for the price, and the steak is absolutely to die for.
