All is well again on the South Hill..
After a loooong hiatus, I returned to Two-Seven-Five.
The waitress reassuranced me that the recipe had not been altered, so I ordered the corn pasta salad as my accompaniment. Yes, it was my old favorite. "Kick" and all.

Original Post: Dated July 2008

Here's the way I looked at it. The Elk opened on the South Hill. If you happened to read my review of the Elk, you'd know I am passionate about the place, and especially about the corn pasta salad as my favorite meal accompaniment. So when I heard the buzz about a South Hill location to be called The Two Seven Public House, I was thrilled. The atmosphere is similar (laid back and unpretentious) and the menu (whew) was almost identical.

But today was a sad day. My corn pasta salad was very different. Elbow noodles and NO KICK. That's right, somebody didn't follow the recipe. It was so very wrong and yes, its that important.
FYI - if you're curious about this corn pasta salad I'm going on about, here's the recipe with the kick. Its from their web site I like having the recipe, but frankly I'd rather have them make it for me.
Hopefully, the South Hill chef will see this and make the necessary adjustments.
Save the corn pasta salad!

1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon cooking oil
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 1/2 cups frozen corn
4 1/2 cups uncooked fusilli
1 cups mayo1 bunch cilantro roughly stemmed
2 Tablespoons chipotle puree (the kick)
Salt to taste
1) Combine corn, onions, butter and oil and roast in a 400 degree oven until onions are translucent and tender. Remove from oven and cool in refrigerator.
2) Cook fusilli as directed and cool under running water.
3) Combine cilantro, chipotle and may on food processor and puree.
4) Mix fusilli, corn/onion mix and puree ingredients. Add salt to taste.

(The kick)--Chipotle puree is canned chipotle peppers usually found in the Mexican section of most grocery stores. Before using place the contents of the can in a food processor and puree well.

Marys & Mimosas - Booze for Breakfast

Bringing Back The Breakfast Drink                  Marys and Mimosas

Both the Bloody Mary and Mimosa make it socially acceptable to drink before noon.  While this can be a problem if the drinking continues all day, on its own, a Mary or a Mimosa is a beautiful thing.
The Bloody Mary can be a meal in itself - a healthy sounding one at that with a slightly morbid name. Bloody Marys traditionally are made with vodka and tomato juice which is then heavily spiced and garnished. Some say this drink was conceived in Paris in the roaring 20's.  Others trace it back to the 30's as a cure to the dreaded hangover. Either way, this breakfast cocktail has evolved with many twists being added along the way.
The Mimosa, on the other hand, is a mainstay of the classy champagne brunch with a straightforward recipe: champagne or sparkling wine and orange juice. Yes, this is a drink you can make yourself. It was supposedly invented in back in 1925 at a Parisian Hotel. As with most cocktails, there a…

Are some wines more romantic than others?

Absolutely! Port for instance is a seductively slow sip that vies for the title of most romantic wine. Additionally, Port is ideal for winter thanks to the warmth of brandy added during the winemaking process. 
I’m thrilled about receiving the highly anticipated release of Quinta de la Rosa’s 30-Year-Old Tawny Port. This collectible port celebrates the thirtieth anniversary since the Father/Daughter team of Tim and Sophia Bergqvist started Quinta de la Rosa in the Douro. This beautiful amber color port is aged well for three decades. Respectfully, slow down and don’t rush this. This is definately a bottle you need to spend some time with. It has enormous elegance and complexity. 

Winemaker’s Notes: On the nose, slightly dried fruit aromas with touches of balsamic vinegar, coffee and exotic wood being just some of the components. On the palate it is simply delicious, almost light but with incredible intensity of flavor, soft, mouth filling with great persistence. Food Match: Best served…

Drink Pink! The rise of Rosé

Rosé sales has exploded in the US over the past few years, especially during the warm weather months. It taste like summer and all the best ways. In France, it now eclipses the sale of white wine. Yes, everything‘s coming up rosé.

It’s not surprising that when the acclaimed Argentina’s Bodega Santa Julia from chose select wines for the "wine in a can" trend, they picked a luscious rosé.

This Malbec Rosé is bursting with summer berries such as strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. I found it charmingly crisp and delicate on the palate. It’s an easy sip and a good balance between sugar and acidity. It’s an ideal pairing for weekends at the lake, alfresco dining and adventure.
I get the convenience of the grab and go can but I’m still packing stemware as sticking your nose in the glass and taking in the aroma effects the taste. Yes, im that into wine. A rosé is a very food friendly wine and pairs with almost anything. Personally, I love rose with grilled seafood and it’…
