Mercy launches a new spring & summer menu

Mercy has launched our new spring & summer menu and while many of your favorite items remain on it, I wanted to tell you about one of my favorite new items, the braised pork Osso Buco. There is a mouth-watering "bone in" flavor; a wonderfully succulent dish that you will be talking about for months!

I personally like it with French green beans as an additional side item. Tender and delicious, the meat literally falls off of the bone. We marinate the meat in a special blend of seasonings and then slowly cook it for 3 hours to bring out the intense flavor. It pairs perfectly with light body red wines. My personal choices are Pages Creek Pinot Noir from Tasmania or a nice Chenas from Beaujolais.

Bon Appetit!

Osso Buco: $18 (served with sun dried tomato risotto)
Pages Creek: $15/glass
Chenas: $60/bottle
