It is Johnny Brenda’s multi-pronged attack of local beer, live music and food that made it our number one bar for 2013. And every Sunday they’re showcasing that food with a special dinner. Now through the 24th that’s a special Turkey dinner with pumpkin pie and all the trimmings for $22. For December, look forward to a prime rib dinner.

There’s the glitz and the glam, and then there’s the humble and the honest-to-goodness, the unaffected and the unassuming. To each his own, but I prefer the latter.
I get a kick out of the quirky buildings’ awkward seating arrangements and tiny menus—menus that need not say much, and food that says all too much; the chef-driven and food-focused holes, often orienting themselves in such a way that the preparer and prepared are shown off, experienced only through an intimate three-part channel between the chef, his food, and his guest. When done well, the following few weeks (or longer) will pale in comparison. That’s why the tasting menu is so important; it’s a facilitation of exchange between the hand of the cook and the consumed palate it feeds.
Some tasting menus you’ll find in places that don’t deserve them, and others are just a second menu to the main. Some are only available on weekdays, but there are those you can only take part in on a single day: Sunday, perhaps.

Besides having a beloved charcuterie program, and some of the most inventive farm-to-table fare in this city, Russet is now joining the league of BYOs in this city that offer a single day designated to their tasting menu. Sunday is their day.
They’ll be running their “Sunday Tastings in May” series throughout the month except for May 12th (probably something to do with Mothers Day). The menu will constitute Spring-appropriate ingredients from Steve Bowes Family Organic Farm, Green Meadows Farm, Lancaster Farm Fresh, and Wyebrook Farms.
The $45, four-course menu will change weekly (according to availability of ingredients). and reservations will be taken between 5:30-9:00 pm.

We’ve got good news and bad news:
The bad news is Sunday dinner service is out at Lemon Hill.
The good news is they’ve replace it with a pretty awesome all-day Sunday menu from 10am-6pm.
With this menu, they promise to appease the stomachs of every guest, keeping their brunch items available all day, as well as adding a few new items. Keep in mind, though, when the food stops, so does the booze. So if you’re looking for a Sunday pick-me-up (they’re one of the only restaurants that serve Rival Brothers Revolver blend and decaf), or you’re hungover and in the need of something to absorb and buffer, or you just want some grub after finishing a Sunday brunch/lunch shift yourself, Lemon Hill’s got you covered.
