Our lettuce series continues with a favorite of many of our diners.

Hello, Arugula.

Arugula packs a peppery punch and many find it to be tender and tasty.

Select sturdy, large-leaf arugula for adding zest to heartier dishes, or opt for the bite-size, baby version for a nuttier, milder taste.

Either way, it is sure to bring an element of delicious to your meal.

Currently, Chef Wolfgang is featuring an arugula salad on the Dinner menu, accented with pine nuts, radishes, mandarins and finished with a parsley vinaigrette.

Come in for Dinner to enjoy one soon!

Lettuce love – Part one

Do we have any lettuce lovers out there?

As a salad for Lunch, a starter for Dinner or a simple garnish, fresh lettuce is getting major props in many dishes.

Let’s start with Kale.

The dark, leafy green has been on dinner plates since Roman times and has long been common across much of Europe.

It is commonly seen in dishes at Julia’s, especially this time of year, since it grows well in Winter.

The vegetable hails from the cabbage family, which also includes broccoli, cauliflower and collards.

Currently, Chef Wolfgang has it on the Dinner menu with our pan-seared duck breast
