Chef Romano will be designing and presenting a traditionally inspired Portuguese menu which will truly give our customers a true Taste of Portugal.  Alongside the traditional Portuguese  menu, Chef Romano will also be cooking daily specials that will feature new and rotating items created from fresh ingredients. Chef Romano’s menu features items such as his famous Portuguese  Grilled Octopus, Portuguese Garlick Steak,  and his Portuguese Seafood stew. This new offering gives our customers the best Portuguese food experience on the Northshore.

Chef Romano’s menu will be available beginning at 12:00  PM and will be served until 9:00  PM, every Tuesday through Sunday. We invite you to join us  for the launch of our latest offering of traditional Portuguese food.

We will still be serving our traditional breakfast menu, and our  popular lunch/dinner items, in addition to the Portuguese food.
