I’ve fallen in love all over again. Recently I had dinner with some other foodie friends and The Shed rocked my world. Oh sure, I’d been back to the Shed several times, but it had been quite some time since I actually ordered off of the regular menu at The Shed at Glenwood. In case you haven’t heard, they’ve got this totally scrumptious list of sliders on Wednesdays for only three bucks! With sliders like Suckling Pig, Lobster, Chorizo, Fried Cod, etc. it is rather easy to never stray from that menu.
I did visit on a Wednesday, aka Slider night, but promised myself to sample some of the other menu items besides sliders. We had the Antipasto plate with meats, cheeses and the biggest olives I’ve ever seen. To bad we were a table of non-olive-eating people. Although the three of us in our party devoured the plate, this would be a terrific choice for five or six people to share with the amount of meat and cheese on the plate.
We also sampled some Foie Gras with pear jam. Words cannot describe how glorious this little piece of heaven is. Just go and get them. All of this was on our table before even looking at the cocktail or wine list. We soon corrected this and were sipping on the sangria and the winter margarita in a matter of minutes. The cocktail list rotates regularly, so if you are a cocktail aficionado, visit to sample some of the unique libations.
One of the things I appreciate about the Shed at Glenwood is that most wines are available by the glass and are pretty reasonably priced. Our server was able to make some wonderful recommendations to pair with our dinner including a Super Tuscan whose name escapes me now, but tasty nevertheless.
I was torn between the Wild Boar Dumplings and the Cane Marinated Duck Breast. Luckily one of my dining companions decided to order the duck and we shared. These two entrees are both available in half portions. And unless you are famished, the half portions will be plenty to fill you up. I did enjoy the dumplings ($12) but the duck ($15) was out of this world fantastic! The outside, crispy and the inside moist and tender and the cane adding just the right amount of sweet. Served alongside the perfectly cooked sunchokes, it was the highlight of our meal.
Our third in the group, never having been to The Shed, ordered a sampling of sliders. The evening’s specials were pork belly topped with baked beans, chicken pot pie, a Panini slider with bacon and brie among several others. Love that even after many years of the popular slider night, Lance Gummere doesn’t keep churning out the same old, same old. He’s always cooking up new and creative sliders. I guess that’s what keeps people coming back week after week.
Another reason to order half portions? The desserts! You can’t leave The Shed at Glenwood without having the house made Ding Dong. However, Chef Gummere hooked us up with some Pumpkin Cheesecake and Sheep’s Milk Yogurt with Honey too. Whew! If you’ve never been to The Shed at Glenwood or only been for slider night, it’s high time you explored some of the other delicious goodies to be found on the menu.
