As I predicted the sardines were not the major seller. Even the GM wouldn't go near them. However, it was D-E-A-D last night. So much so that we left early. We did sell one order of the sardines and I thoroughly enjoyed mine.
Tonight there are a number of events going on in and around town. A circus south of us, a "pops" concert in town and a Yucatecan dance performance. The young hipsters will be at the first, not sure who will be at the second and all the kitchen workers in town will be at the third. So we have no idea what to expect from tonight. Either another dead evening or slammed.
Tonight we've got quail to work with, the sardines and 12 oz bone-in NY steaks (also known as a club steak). I thinking grilled quail with fava bean ravioli. One of the advantages of having a new prep guy is I can do ravioli now. It's a time consuming process and one I do infrequently because I never had enough hands.
Last night I also made a rose (that's ro-zay, not roz) gelee to put on our strawberry shortcake. We'll see how it comes out.
