UpStairs on the Square will present Restaurant Week menus in both of its dining rooms, with a Soirée Dining Room menu ($43.07) and a Monday Club Bar Dining Room lunch menu ($20.07) and dinner menu ($33.07) by chef Steven Brand. The lunch and both dinner menus will be three-course menus with choice in each course and options for vegetarian diners.
UpStairs on the Square will present these menus from August 5 to 31 rather than the currently publicized two weeks. These lunch and dinner menus will be available on Saturdays and Sundays as well, including Sunday Brunch. (The Soirée Dining Room is routinely closed on Sunday and Monday nights, but will be open for Soirée RW diners on Monday, August 6.)
The long-standing partnership with Westport Rivers Winery will continue, allowing us to offer their Westport Rivers 2002 Brut Cuvée RJR Sparkling for $7per glass, and $35.07 per bottle. We have picked several of our favorite summer wines and priced them to sell: Hofer’s popular Austrian white wine, ’06 Gruner Veltliner ($28.07 bottle/$7 glass) and Cooper’s Creek ‘05 “Glamour Puss” Pinot Noir from New Zealand, a steel at $20.07 per bottle and $6 per glass.
In addition, our we are featuring Triple 888 Vodka in our martinis and mixed drinks for Restaurant Week, and offering straight or flavored martinis at $2 under their usual price. Triple 8 Vodka is an acclaimed micro-distilled vodka produced locally in Nantucket by Cisco Brewers. We have been impressed by its clean crisp taste and its marvelous mixability. We will also be offering our special pink drink, the Lolita (champagne, house-made strawberry liqueur and a strawberry) for $10 (usually $12).
