Ahoy Captain: Seafood Ahead

Picture: A Banh Mi

In a hat tip to our fine Lake -- and those able body boaters who cruise our fine waterway  --  several area restaurants will be offering special “Captain’s Menus” as part of the Opening Weekend festivities.

The menus are primarily seafood based and our local chefs have thrown out a long line and caught some fine and delicious dining options indeed.

Among the non-seafood specials is the Banh Mi, being offered by Mr. P’s Mountain Smokehouse. It’s a Vietnamese sandwhich served on a baguette. It’s typically filled with a choice of meats with a spicy chilli sauce and accompanied with vegetables which may include fresh cucumber slices, cilantro and fresh or pickled carrots.  Mrs P.’s version is served with smoked chicken, pork or tofu and of course can be ordered on a Gluten Free roll.

And don’t forget the scrumptious pancake breakfast being served by Schroon’s very own Cub Scout Troop at the Fish and Game Club on Sunday. It goes from 7:00 am to 12 noon. $6 adults, $4 for kids 12 and younger.
