Pepperoni Parmesan Doughnuts and More, This Spring at DC Harvest

From our friends at DC Harvest...

Obviously, the warmer weather is upon us. DC Harvest is presenting a brand new seasonal menu from Happy Hour snacks to main courses in the dining room. In keeping with DC Harvest’s philosophy, dishes are locally sourced, plates balanced and health conscious and tasty, of course.

Happy Hour takes place daily from 5:30-7 PM. New cocktails include Springthyme - Green Hat Navy Strength Gin (115 proof) with grapefruit, thyme, dry vermouth and Riesling; Rising Sun - Prichard's Silver Rum, Leopold Bros. Maraschino liqueur, grapefruit and lime; Pink Headed Stepchild - basil infused vodka, lime, ginger beer and Peychaud's bitters; and Virginia Kolsch and Creek Happy Hour special - a VA duo of can of Champion Killer Kolsch beer and shot of Catoctin Creek Rye. 50% off bottles of wine every Sunday night.

Happy Hour snacks include Pepperoni Parmesan "Doughnuts" with creole mustard and micro herb salad.

In the dining room, locally sourced dishes include Wild Chesapeake Bay catfish with grilled asparagus, carrot basil puree and pistou sauce; cornmeal crusted Langenfelder farms (Eastern Shore) bone-in pork chop with herb farroto, carrots and pickled green tomato/cucumber relish; Roseda Farms (Monkton) house-made, house-Hickory smoked boneless short ribs with cheddar grits and grilled asparagus (served Wednesday and Thursday); Homemade Semolina Garganelli with baby Swiss chard roasted carrots, basil and creamed leek sauce finished with toasted breadcrumbs; spelt linguine carbonara with DC Harvest house cured Cherry Wood Smoked Bacon, duck egg and pea shoots - a modern take on classic dish; and pan roasted scallops with a trio of peas. English peas, snow peas, and pea shoots, finished with Chermoula sauce (North African based consisting of toasted cumin, cilantro, coriander, citrus and chipotle chili). Smokey, slightly spicy, this sauce pairs remarkably well with sweetness of scallops and peas.
