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 http://www.wedonthaveone.com/ 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!

ROASTED 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.
