January Newsletter

05 Jan January Newsletter

Wishing you a happy new year.  This year many of us are taking healthy steps – practicing the good life – walking through the streets and park paths of Lafayette Square, savoring the life in the City – even on the coldest days of January.  Come join us – we know you’ll love getting to know the neighborhood.  And then come on in to SqWires for comfort that’s perfect for the season.  Have a seat by the fire, warm up with a bowl soup – try our hand-rolled matzo ball or baked onion or special soup of the day.

For all you January-born-Capricorn-Aquarius who are said to love festive meals, our winter menu will satisfy and delight.  Try the grilled strip steak topped with horseradish butter and sauteed ozark forest wild mushrooms, served over lentil whipped potatoes.  Or the paella – rice simmered with PEI mussels, pulled chicken, shrimp, squid, fresh fish and artichoke hearts in a garlic tomato sauce.  And the best way to top off a festive meal?  With our housemade warm bread pudding – each day adds a chef-selected ingredient:  it might be indulgent white and dark chocolate; or caramel baked apple – each selection is sure to please…always topped with a scoop of rich ice cream.

And if you’re trying to restrain yourself just a bit in 2011, each Tuesday try SqWires SqWare Plates.  Smaller plates of fabulous food created just for the evening.  $5 each or 5 for $20 to share.

January Wednesdays, enjoy a half-price bottle of wine with your entree.  In this new year, it’s an opportunity to try a new wine.  Let us recommend something fun to accompany your meal.

One thing that won’t change in this new year is our devotion to fine locally grown and produced ingredients.  With these top-quality choices, we plan our ever-changing seasonal menus to bring you all the delicious details.

Check you calendar and start planning your parties and events for 2011 and then visit our Front Room and Annex to choose the place you’ll like best for your guests.  Call Bethany at 314-865-3522 or email bethany@sqwires.com to plan an event to please all the people all the time.

At SqWires you’ll also find the best of local blues and jazz during Friday night Oyster & Shrimp Bar 5-7pm and Friday & Saturday evening 8-11pm and Sunday Brunch 11am-2pm.  During January come and enjoy the sounds of the Larry Griffin Duo, Bill Murphy, Tom Hall, Falling Martins, Brian Curran, Curt Landes, Dawn Weber Duo, Bumblebee Bob Kamoski, Monica Casey, Big Bamou, Leslie Sanazaro Duo, Pennsylvania Slim Duo and Margaret Bianchetta Duo.
