Restaurant Week: Druther’s Brewery

Its Restaurant Week here in Saratoga Springs.  A great time of year where local restaurants put together special dishes at special prices to showcase their menu and talent.  I saw the Druther’s Brewery (one of my favorite places) menu and had to have it.

Appetizer course: Peanut butter and Jelly Duck Wings with greens.  The flavor on these blew my mind.  The wings were tossed in a peanut sauce and then there was a red berry reduction on the bottom of the plate.

Entre: Duo of Filet Mignon and Mashed Potatoes.  The potatoes were really just potatoes there isn’t too much you can do with mashed.  The steaks though were the best prepared i ever had.  A nice crispy seer on the outside and perfectly pink and tender inside.  I have never eaten a cut of meat that soft  and perfect to be honest

Dessert: Chocolate Mousse with whipped cream and fudge cake center.  Heavy and super rich but the whipped cream was extremely light so it actually balanced well.

I paired it all with their Winter Warmer beer.  Very similar to Sam Adams winter lager but much me consistent and a bit richer without that bloaty feeling after drinking a couple
