Update 1/16/12: This restaurant closed Fall 2011.
Is there anything nicer than cozying up by a roaring fire with a drink and good food this time of year? Yes, when someone else is doing the cooking!
I just received an email from one of our favorite BYOB restaurants, The Cafe at Rosemont. We’ve only been to this warm, comfy little restaurant a few times, and then only for weekend breakfast. Their food is delicious and inventive, and we always leave satisfied. They also have tapas every Thursday evenings. But every Wednesday evening they have a special dinner, usually around a global theme. (Get on their email list to be informed each week.) Next week will be “The French Alps.” But this week… in honor of The King – Elvis Presley – who would have been 76 years old this Saturday, they are offering this 3-course meal for $24. I’m humming and swinging already!
Vernon Presley’s Black-eyed Peas & Bacon Soup
Col. Parker’s Ambrosia Salad
Priscilla’s Glazed Ham with Sweet Potatoes
“Hunk of Burning Love” Chicken with Barbecue Sauce & Rice Pilaf
“Suspicious Minds” Baked Grits with Cheese & Greens
“Love Me Tender” Peanut Butter & Banana Mousse
“Jailhouse Rock” Pecan Bourbon Pie
And I really couldn’t put it better than Lola Wykoff, owner of the Cafe, when she said in her email,
Winter days can leave you longing for an easy escape and a good meal in addition to warm feet … This time of year can be hard on a small business, so we ask our fans to keep supporting us and tell your friends to give us a try.
It’s good to remember that as much as we may sometimes want to curl up and stay at home, our favorite restaurants need our support especially this time of year. Check out our map of BYOBs in Bucks and nearby to find more great eats.
