“As the seasons change, so do our tastes and in the winter our guests want something that’s satisfying and hearty with our signature global twist,” says Bob Holden, CEO. “Prawns and steak are always a big hit and we’re presenting them in two favorite styles this month – Tuscan and a salute to the American steakhouse with our Prawns Oscar preparation.”
Global flavors have always been a focus at Elephant Bar, and that continues to be true with the addition of other new menu dishes including Pan-Seared Mahi-Mahi with Vera Cruz Salsa and Lemon Beurre Blanc, as well as Wood-Grilled Tri-Tip with Jumbo Shrimp Toscana. The restaurant’s high-heat cooking methods—wok and wood-fired grill—once again are center stage in the preparation of these new menu items. Grilled meats are paired with flavorful wok-fired vegetables like Chinese pea pods, bell peppers and bok choy. The dishes feature sides such as broccolini garlic mashed potatoes and ratatouille vegetables sure to be fan favorites.
Good value is always on the menu at Elephant Bar and the new Global Specialties are priced to fit post-holiday budgets.
