A capital idea?

Hello and happy spring!

First of all, I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to respond to our questions. We have had lots of messages and comments about the menu and service issue. We really, really appreciate it! Your feedback is really helping us make decisions, and tailor the pub to our community. Overall, people seem to be up for ordering at the counter, as long as it is clearly communicated. One great suggestion we've had for a better counter service model was to have menu/ordering forms on each table that can just be checked off with the order and brought to the counter, all filled out.

A Tentative Menu and the Service Question

We'll get to the service issue shortly, and yes, this is my little sister, and no, I can't take credit for this, her friend John in Ireland made it. But first, the menu!

So, I've spent the past month or so whittling down our menu and painstakingly pricing out each recipe. And now I'd like to hear from you. I'm hoping that we've come up with tasty snacks and dishes that will appeal to Antigonishers and our visitors, reflect our regional bounty and character, and be interesting and delicious without derailing your attempts to eat well–asolutely no nasty preservatives or additives or excessive grease to worry about! I've built it around foods that are readily available in our area, and the vegetables that have the longest growing seasons or that keep well for most of the year. We'll be changing it up and adding new things fairly regularly to reflect what's in season, and keep things interesting, but this will be the core of the menu.
