Eli’s Table New Menu April 21

Eli’s Table unveiled their new menu on Tuesday, April 21 to include a few signature items that are sure to please the palate.

Start with the newest twist on fried green tomatoes, the Fried Green Tomato Napoleon. This stack is piled high with pimento cheese, tomato coulis, and an aged balsamic napoleon glaze. Next try out the seasonal salad options. The Eli’s Forager’s Salad is full of fresh kale, lemon-olive oil, tart blackberries, watermelon radishes, shaved red onion, and a sweet vincotto.

Now it’s time for the main course; I recommend diving straight into the Duck Waffles. These sweet potato waffles come out fluffy and hot covered in crispy fried brussels sprouts and generous servings of seared duck breast, all drizzled with a malted bacon glaze.

The memory of this great meal sticks with you long after the table has been cleared.
