    It's been great. The clientele have begun to trust me as a chef. Even though some may not know what a mushroom Sabayon is they still will give it a try. And people usually love the specials These specials are coffee rubbed steak hash with sweet potato, carm. Onions, and mushroom buerre blanc; strawberry cheesecake pancakes;and warm cous cous salad with basil vin, cherry tomatoes and arugula!!

    http://www.heraldonline.com/2012/06/22/4066594/rock-hill-diner-balances-meat.html This is nuts guys. It's our first 90 days and we have a great response in the community. Being a classically trained Chef seemed like a hindrance at first but people are really catching on and understanding what we are trying to do.

    Tell me more about this Short Rib Bread Pudding with Horseradish sauce (I'm assuming the horseradiah is a misspell) - sounds very intriguing. It is a misspell. Lol it will be a sourdough and wheat bread base. Just like a sweet bread pudding I'm adding rosemary and caramalized onions and leaving out the sugar. I'm gonna shred the short rib and mix it in and bake it. With the leftover meat I'm gonna make a ragout with a reduction of the braising liquid!!

    Today was our first day open and we did 10 covers. Everyone was very happy with everything. The first thing we sold was a 2 if by land. One guest loved the Chorizo chili. We should pick up towards the weekend!!
  6. Since I am the guy from the restaurant adventures post, I'll elaborate as much as I will serve. We will do scrambled from soft to hard. Over easy to hard e.I. fried; poached soft to hard boiled, soft and hard, sheered, basted. I also will do a poached scrambled(a la Daniel Patterson from COI). We are using farm fresh eggs for our scrams and omelettes. We will crack them individually and blend them with a touch of buttermilk. I love soft scrambled and we are technically a diner. Working breakfast at a five star resort taught me the best way to make a scrambled egg is by low heat and lots of whipping. If you guys are ever in Rock Hill, SC come by the YOLK and we will give you the best scrambled eggs you ever had. Or will duty try.

    I'm gonna par boil them in a salt/sugar/herb brine. cool and freeze them and cook them to order during service. They should take about three minutes to cook crispy. Here are the pics as well

    TN fries are Yukon gold potatoes cut in large dice. Cooked in an Herbed sugar/salt brine until cook tender. Then fried crispy and tossed with a herb and spice mix. I agree, I think we should sell the funguy with fruit and sliced tomatoes when they are in season. I want to do a smoked salmon bagel Benedict and I might call it the two if by sea!!

    Yeah I will definitely do those things. But I will do those as specials. I have to find some great local livermush. ANd when the growing season comes back I'm gonna make some seasonal perserves. Home made biscuits, country ham and red eye gravy from the left over coffee at the end of the week sounds great.

    Probably shouldn't do orange with the blue - those are UVA colors and might keep the Carolina folks away ! Seriously, though, I really like the idea of Carolina blue and white stripes - very fresh and modern, but still homey. Good luck! Will this be just weekdays, or weekends too? we are gonna do 5am-2pm(per you guys suggestions;great ones by the by) Monday-Saturday

    I thought about that...I think we are gonna start off closing at 1pm but if we get enough request to be open later, we are gonna have to hire more people. Thats a problem I would love to have. LOL Or at least I think I would.
