TEAM FAVORITE SPRING MENU ITEMS

burrata parmesan

fried burrata, spaghetti, sweet basil pesto, grape tomato, parmesan cheese, basil

spring 2019 new menu is here and we have picked our recent favorites!

we asked our team members veronica, mary + morgan to pick their top three favorites (it was hard to narrow it down to just three)

  • Lamb meatballs

    • the star of the day! we thought the dish was bright, fresh, cooling making it the perfect spring dish. the lamb had really nice complimentary warming spice and just the right amount of crunch.

  • broccoli cheddar breads and spreads

    • this was actually like soup in your hand. soup to go. it had some seriously comforting flavors.

  • burrata parm

    • a flavor that reminded us of home but made with some more unique ingredients. it’s a really special dish!

we start creating our menu for you SEVERAL months in advance. our kitchen team develops new menus IN A collaborative WAY AS A RESULT OF ALL THE LEARNINGS WE HAVE ABSORBED THROUGH OPEN BOOK MANAGEMENT. WE INVOLVE OUR WHOLE KITCHEN TEAM AND ENCOURAGE OUR TEAM TO COME UP WITH THEIR OWN UNIQUE RECIPES. researches and tests and develops recipes for several weeks before our training.

did you know that each menu rollout we host an all-hands-on-deck staff training? our team gets together for an interactive training developed each quarter by our leadership team. we start off by watching demonstrations of each of the cocktail builds. our experts behind the bar talk about their inspiration behind each cocktail. each one of our bartenders helps to collaboratively come up with a cocktail for the new menu!

then we move into tasting all of the new menu items. we learn a lot about the creative process in coming up with dishes at rail trail. we learn about different seasoning elements (like how vinegar can really punch up a pesto sauce!) and learn about allergens and ways to order a dish so that we can accomodate our guests.
