Iron Chef Competition Winner!

If you came in for dinner this weekend (or perused our website), you know that we had our Iron Chief Competition this weekend.  Who won?  In Battle Pumpkin, the battle went to John, but just barely!  We heard many compliments about Joe’s Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagne, and his Carmel Pumpkin Pot de Creme dessert was outstanding!  John’s menu beat Joe’s by just a few votes, and our server Patrick may or may not have swayed the battle for the final votes.  Joe is an excellent chef, and we know it won’t be long until he’s got bragging rights in Toscano’s ktichen stadium!
