Patio? Who said “Patio”?

It’s the start of spring break. The weather should hit 70 degrees. Everyone is ready for some outside time. Ya know what? THE PATIO WILL BE OPEN THIS WEEKEND! Stop by after work for a cocktail and a bite, or stay for dinner! The heaters will be ready just in case… And rumor has it that Dameione is cooking up some specials (bourbon punch anyone?) for our patio-dwellers. Let’s kick this season into gear!

From www.theculturetrip.com

“Mixing African, Caribbean and Cajun flavours together, the Morris House Bistro serves up low country cuisine in the great plains of Wyoming. Housed within the bungalow that once belonged to America’s first female Justice of the Peace, the setting is both grand and elegant, yet welcoming at the same time. The menu is full of tasty treats including shrimps and grits, sweet peas and bacon, and filet of beef. For an extravagant meal bursting with tempting flavours, order the market street crab cakes to start and follow with the cold carrot garlic soup. For main course opt for the Atlantic shelf red snapper with a side of spicy fried okra and choose one of the desserts of the day for a sweet finish to a deliciously spicy meal.”

Grgich Hills Estate Wine Dinner ~ June 24, 2014

03

On Tuesday, June 24, we are proud to present a special Grgich Hills Estate Wine Dinner! If you’ve never had Grgich Hills, they are absolutely fantastic (and fairly hard to come by in Wyoming). Jacquiline Milburn of GHE is flying in to discuss each of the FIVE wines you will taste, and Dameione is pulling out all the stops for the food pairings that evening. Following an amuse bouche that’s being planned, here’s the rest of the menu:

Fume Blanc:

Grilled Large Sea Scallop on a Bed of Spicy Arugula with Honey-Thyme Vinaigrette

Chardonnay:

Charcuterie of Duck Prosciutto, Cambazola, Boysenberry Mustard, & Savory Biscotti

Merlot:

Sugar Cane Glazed Smoked Quail with Apricot & Israeli Cous Cous

Cabernet:

Grilled Lamb T-Bone with Strawberry Sauce, Paired with Roasted Carrots & Mint

Zinfandel:

Sautéed Blackberries with Molasses on Puff Pastry, Topped with Brie & Buttermilk Double-Whipped Cream

Because of the wine and the menu, seating is limited to only 30 guests. The cost is $175 per person, but trust me it is absolutely worth it. If you are interested in purchasing a seat, please email me at morrishousebistro@gmail.com or call 307.369.1378

AAA Magazine “Via”

Well this is some great news: AAA’s magazine “Via” covering the west/mountain west had a write up about Cheyenne in the Spring 2014 issue, and mentioned MHB as the place to eat! It says “Sophisticated Southern flavors change with the seasons, but the cheesy, just-spicy-enough low-country shrimp with grits is a year-round favorite.” We couldn’t be happier! Congrats to our friends at Shadow’s, which was the only other restaurant mentioned in the piece.

Happy Holidays!

Let the holiday season begin! So, because of some craziness in reservations and parties already booked, this month we will only be able to take reservations over the phone (the online form will return at the end of the year). Tables are going fast for December – if you’d like to have a big party, a smaller celebration with friends or family, or a romantic dinner for two this month, we recommend that you call us sooner rather than later: 307.369.1378. Thanks!
