Modelled after and paired with the label styling of this months NJ brewery, Czig Meister, (which might I add plesently surprised me with the quality and taste of their entire line up) The entrees are cleverly called “the Shepard”, “the Blacksmith”, “the Sea Captain” and other names of similar character. What I was most excited for was the long awaited arrival of the grass fed lamb from Martenette Farms.
Coined as “the Shepard”, it was an outstanding shank and rib chop, cooked to perfection, served on top of spaetzel and brussel sprouts.
We also got “the Sea Captain”, beautiful scallops covered in caviar served on top of an herb infused crispy quinoa. Simply mouth watering… For the record we had a table of 6 so we went big and tried most of their menu!
The special vegetarian entree of the month is “the Plowman”. A potato pancake stuffed with brie cheese with a hefty portion of organic micro greens and arugula served on top.
“The Farmer” is really just a renaming of the ever evolving “Farmer’s Plate” which is what ever organic produce chef has to work with served with a tomato jam and sourdough toast.
Someone at the table also ordered “the Blacksmith” a blackened angus bacon burger with smoked cheddar on a pretzel bun. As if their “P.U.B. Burger” isn’t good enough, the Blacksmith incarnation is definitely superior!
“The Fisherman” has one of my favorite flavors, lemon thyme butter sauce….. sweet potato hash and braised greens.
The final instalation on the October menu is “the Butcher”. Green Duchess farm beer braised bratwurst & pork schnitzel, with a house made sauerkraut and a warm potato salad.
Seriously, Project P.U.B. must have made some deal with the autumnal spirits to achieve such an exceptional menu offering this month. Or perhaps they sacrificed a lamb,.. wait a minute they sort of actually did that! Never the less, don’t miss this month at Project P.U.B.! Wether you enjoy a weeknight dinner, the ongoing Detox Retox yoga event every second Saturday, or the Halloween Bar crawl on the 28th, this is no trick, treat yourself to a magnificent meal!
