Appetizer: New Orleans BBQ Shrimp – The key ingredient to this customer favorite is the fresh coastal shrimp pan sautéed to order. Chef Scott then finishes the dish with New Orleans-style beurre blanc, Worcestershire sauce, fresh lemon, and a little heat. The dish is served piping hot with toasted baguette.dresslerschefs pic of month

Entrée: Snake River Farms Wagyu Sirloin – This is one of Chef’s favorite meat purveyors. This amazing breed from Kobe, Japan is widely recognized as one of the premier breeds of cattle for beef. It is world renown for its mouthwatering flavor and tenderness. Snake River Farms produces some of the best American Wagyu money can buy. Chef likes to offer both the Sirloin and the Ribeye as features at both locations.

Dessert: Key Lime Pie – This is a refreshingly light Springtime dessert. The key lime filling is simple and delicious. Made primarily with key lime juice and condensed milk, the pie is served in a graham cracker crust with fresh whipped cream.

Adult Beverage: Olde Mecklenberg Brewery Captain Jack Pilsner – OMB was founded in 2009 by John Marrino. The brewery was Charlotte’s first and specializes in German-style beers. Dressler’s Metropolitan location always has 2 on tap, along with 3-4 other NC beers. One of our favorites is the Captain Jack Pilsner. This classic Northern German “Pils” is both crisp and smooth, with a subtle yet assertive hoppiness that doesn’t overwhelm your palate or the beer’s malt backbone.
