We are allvery excited to see the opening of the Pavilion in April whichwill feature grab-and-go lunch items and menu selectionsprepared swiftly for members on-the-go, or for those hurryingback to their offices, or simply for those who want a quick biteto eat. The regular al Fresco season will still open for dinner inMay possibly a week or two earlier than its usual opening date.Keep an eye out for email blasts as we announce more definitelythe dates for these events.In January, Executive Chef Kevin Isacsson introduced thewinter menu. The new spring menu will be implemented midApril so if you have not yet tried some of the winter items, I’dlike to share some of my favorites. At lunch, the Kale QuinoaCaesar Salad is a great addition to the menu. It is light butfilling and won’t leave you hungry an hour after lunch. TheSkirt Steak Salad is also an excellent choice along with the PanRoasted Curried Chicken Breast Salad. Did you know that youcan order your salads with your choice of protein – grilledchicken, grilled shrimp and salmon for just a few additionaldollars? Ask your server next time you visit the club. If Iskipped breakfast, I go for more substance and order the OliveOil Poached Albacore Sandwich, the Roasted Vegetable and CheeseEmpanadas or the Red Wine Braised Short Rib (to die for.)At dinner, try the Beet Salad or the Truffled Wagyu Beef Raviolito start your meal. For a main entrée, my favorites are theSeared Diver Scallops, the Bacon-Wrapped Monkfish and theGrilled Hanger Steak. Of course, you won’t go wrong whateveryou order at lunch or dinner. Chef Kevin and his crew really doa wonderful job in the kitchen.For those who have not been in club lately, did you know thatwe have a Mexican buffet in the Rathskeller every Wednesday?The menu is posted weekly in the website The buffet is only 11.95 per person. Come visitsoon on a Wednesday and enjoy an excellent prime rib buffetin the dining room or for a more casual atmosphere, theRathskeller is waiting for you.I look forward to seeing you at The Athenaeum. Please drop bymy office when you are next at the club.Marisu JimenezGeneral Manager2
