pork butt in coke; NOW 5 DAYS A WEEK

The Rose and Kettle Restaurant
4 Lancaster St.
Cherry Valley, NY
Open Friday through Tuesday at 5 PM

The Summer's almost here and we at the Rose and Kettle are adjusting accordingly. As of today we are open Friday through Tuesday for Dinner at 5, and we will be keeping the kitchen open with late snacks too! Starting at 9 we'll be serving Eggplant Parmesan, Fries, Quesadillas and more. 

About dinner: As the reservation book fills we are cranking up the ovens with chile-bathed grilled local Duck Breast from Gaia's Breath Farm, delicious Halibut Cheeks with vanilla beurre blanc, Pork Roast (what butchers call "Butt") braised all day in a Coca Cola Bath, classic R & K Hanger Steaks au poivre and much much more. 

This Sunday our friend Carl Waldman will be performing a live acoustic show at 8 PM. But not just any Carl Waldman mind you, this is the all new Carl Walman project: Carl Waldman alone with his guitar! It's a first for many years, the man behind more rock combos than Cherry Valley can recall is finally stepping out to work the wood and wire in a room full of nothing but ears... the ears of his audience.

That's all. Anything else you need to know, just ask.

Mothers day

Can we add 4 people and another baby to our 6  reservation. If that time does not work for our group let us know when does.
I am going to bring 2 plastic seats to put in chairs for the babies. So plan that both babies will have a seat!

Mother's Day Weekend open Sunday at 12 Noon

The Rose and Kettle Restaurant
4 Lancaster St.
Cherry Valley, NY
Open Friday, Saturday, Sunday

Hi Everyone,

This Sunday is Mother's Day and we are open for a lunch and dinner marathon from 12 Noon until 10 PM. We've got our regular menu plus wonderful lunchy things for Mom and her gang: grilled wild salmon with lemon ailoi, truffle risotto, chilled creamy wild fiddle head fern soup, hot roast beef sandwiches with horseradish, eggplant parmesan.

Also on Sunday night, starting at 8 PM we have more live music. Two musician friends of ours from the underground pop scene in Troy, NY will be joining us for an evening of acoustic goodness. Ross Goldstein of The Coconut Show plays a sort of slack-keyed tropical road anthem pop with fuzzy toned guitar and organ. Come out and get a copy of his album Free Dumb, on vinyl! 

Aaron Smith fronts The Scientific Maps, who are big time now in Albany and Troy. They perform in a similar vein as Ross, a bright trumpet and moog-laced rockin' pop music. Aaron will be accompanied by his trumpet player Donna Baird so we're in for a treat. From The Beatles to Lou Reed to Vampire Weekend, these two bands run the gamut of likenesses while holding on to their own unique and excellent sound. It's free and it might just be the best music event we've hosted yet.

As for the rest, well we have local chickens in this weekend, which we will be serving in our special classic manner: plain (but great!). Also, local beef that I am braising in orange and herbs for a risotto, lots of fresh local greens, local duck sausages and cotto cured salami, local chevre goat cheese. we also have wild fiddle head ferns and wild leeks (aka ramps) fresh from the forest earth. Plus all your favorites like hanger Steak and Goat Cheese tarts. We are open at 5 on Friday and Saturday, and as I said earlier, we open at 12 Noon on Sunday. 

See you soon,
