Diving Horse’s Opening Menu for 2013

On Wednesday we told you that Avalon BYOB The Diving Horse is opening for the season on Tuesday, May 21. Well, now we have a sneak peek of what the menu will be like for Memorial Day weekend. And with the praise given to Fitler Dining Room, interest in the Pub & Kitchen crew’s third restaurant is sure to heat up.
