Monday night’s can be pretty slow on the dining scene.  Due to slow traffic and the start of the work week, a lot of restaurants are closed.  However, the folks at Rockit Bar and Grill can’t wait until Monday’s, because that’s when they feature their special “Taste It” menu.  “Taste It” Monday’s allows their Executive Chef to focus on one particular theme that pairs cuisine and wine flights to particular region.

December’s “Taste It” focuses on the region of France.  It includes 3 appetizers and 3 flights of wine for $12.  The appetizers for this month include: wine_1511

Cheese Plate

            brie and morbier cheeses with sliced baguette, toasted nuts and dried fruit

            $8 a la carte

Deviled Eggs
