Craft Beer Special Events New Menu American Lakeview

Located in the Lakeview neighborhood and the winner of three Bib Gourmand awards, Wood is kicking off spring in style with a newly refreshed menu that focuses on small plates and fresh, seasonal ingredients, a vibrant patio opening and a special craft beer dinner on May 20.

Wood’s Fresh Spring Menu
Highlights from Chef Ashlee Aubin’s spring menu include:

  • Steak Tartare ($13) with hand diced strip loin, fried capers, slow cooked egg yolk and toasted rye
  • Burrata Cheese ($13) with grilled asparagus, arugula, garlic bread, shaved radish and balsamic vinegar.
  • Spaghetti ($12) with green garlic and English pea fondue, pea puree, Meyer lemon, pea tendrils and mint.
  • Roasted Chicken Breast ($23) with Italian chicken sausage, pickled green beans, wild mushrooms and crispy potatoes.
  • Roasted Monkfish ($28) with sautéed spinach and mushrooms, manila clams, sunchoke puree and shoestring potatoes.
And, the new menu is capped off by a treat that will bring diners back to childhood – the ultimate “Root Beer Float” ($10) features house made root beer and ice cream and is served with your choice of Fernet Branca or Four Roses Bourbon. The root beer is a naturally fermented and carbonated beverage and the ingredients include all natural sassafras, sarsaparilla, licorice root, cherry bark, wintergreen, molasses, vanilla, cinnamon, juniper, and allspice.
