Summer Hits... My Personal Favorite

The menu reads: "Yellow Raz el Hanout Spice Rubbed Tuna, seared rare, daily selection of sliced summer tomatoes, radish sprouts, tomato relish"

Ask the staff, and there is no question this is my favorite new addition Scott added to the Summer Menu.

Raz el Hanout, is a blend of herbs and spices used across the Middle East and North Africa. The name means "head of the shop" in Arabic, and refers to a mixture of the best spices a seller has to offer. Our mixture features coriander, cumin, pepper, ginger, hot pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, tumeric, clove, cardamom, and a hint of rose flower... the seared tuna picks up these flavors exceedingly well.

But to be bluntly honest, for me the fresh little radish sprouts, steal the show atop sliced rounds of fresh local tomatoes...
