Tartare 

This unique dish is made with raw chopped steak, egg yolk, spicy mustard, and capers. Since the beef is raw, be sure it’s fresh and high quality directly from the butcher.

Ice Cream Sandwich 

Vanilla or flavored ice cream is sandwiched between two soft chocolate chip cookies. It’s a large dessert that can often be split between two people. Kids love this one!
