New Fall Menu Items
Are you ready for fall? We sure are. Our menus take a rustic turn this September, with the addition of classics like a Wild Mushroom Pizza. This savory pie combines a ragoût of local mushrooms with caramelized onions, roasted garlic, crème fraiche, salt and pepper on our hand-tossed dough.
September Wine of the Month
Earthy, rustic foods like our Wild Mushroom pizza pair perfectly with our Wine of the Month, an earthy Cotes du Rhone from Edmond Burle in La France. From one of our favorite producers in France, this old-school red (Syrah & Grenache) is from organically grown grapes with no fining or filtering. The Burle brother’s hands-off approach yields a wine of aromatic earthiness, clack pepper, berry, plum and smoke flavors with a long finish. Easily one of the best values in France’s Rhone Valley.
Nothing in the Northwest is earthier than fresh hops. And September frames these flowers in all their sticky, aromatic glory. All our local breweries start producing small batch beers in bottles and some hard-to-find draft releases, and Elephants is the place to find your favorites. And if you prefer your oat sodas from further afield, have no fear – Elephants has got you covered. Because mid-September marks the beginning of Oktoberfest, and our carefully curated collection of German and Austrian brews pair perfectly with your bratwurst.
