Fourth of July Break

Old Glory

We will be closed July 4th, 5th and 6th. We will reopen July 7th @ 11:30. Our regular hours are Monday through Saturday from 11:30 till 10. The bar stays open later when we have guests. We are usually closed on Sundays, but we do open for private parties. We do a lot of special parties, including catering.  If you have an event coming up give us a call.  One of the things we do is trays of hors d’oeuvres.  Parties where there are trays of food have become very popular.  It is more casual, allows your guests to mix, presents them with a variety of tastes and can be a good value.

Give us a call or send an email for more information.

Summertime is the Best Time

We’ll be enjoying some of the best fruit and vegetables in the world here this summer. We get them from TD Willey Farms and Valorosi Farms, Specialty Crop Co, Greg Desmond and Ken Schneider. We’ll incorporate this beautiful produce into items such as Lasagna with vegetables and pesto sauce, fresh fruit sorbets and gelatos, a BLP sandwich with bacon, lettuce and plums, fruit salsas and toppings for lunch and dinner specials.  Of course we will have Figs wrapped with bacon and drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette when the figs are available.
