Day One of Son of a Gun‘s lunch service on Day 2 of 2012 means I don’t start my New Year’s resolutions until Day 3…

Tried everything on the menu we haven’t seen (and eaten) before on the dinner menu. Two words: Oyster Loaf.

Smoked Trout Salad – new

Beet Salad

Beets, apples, pecans, blue cheese, gem lettuce $10. I forking LOVE this salad. (But I’d also love to see a heartier “main dish salad” suitable for a light+liquid lunch at the bar. A Son-of-a-Gun-ified Nicoise, maybe?!)
