The Maine Event, Hospitality Restaurants’ most successful annual menu promotion, marks its 20th year at Salmon Dave’s Pacific Grille.
Celebrate seafood this fall with the addition of dishes like lobster rangoons ($9) and chopped lobster salad ($14) to the menu. Of course, Salmon Dave’s award-winning lobster bisque is featured all year long. Noontime diners can enjoy a Maine lobster and shrimp roll with lemon-caper dressing, served on a buttered split-top bun with hand-cut fries ($15).
Additions to the dinner menu include almond-crusted tilapia served with lobster basmati rice ($22), and herb-crusted walleye with roasted red pepper cream and lobster ravioli ($26). Grilled filet mignon is served Lobster Newberg-style, with a five-ounce coldwater lobster tail and Newberg sauce ($27).
Pasta offerings are a lobster and pork noodle bowl with poached lobster dumplings and braised pork shoulder, ramen-style noodles, edamame and cucumber salad ($16), and lobster tossed with cavatappi pasta in lobster cream sauce ($21).
The highlight of the promotion is The Maine Event, a New England-style lobster bake with a whole Maine lobster, grilled half-chicken, steamed clams, red skin potatoes and corn on the cob ($39.95). The lobster bake is offered for $24.95 on Sunday, after 1 p.m.
