Today's News and Specials

A wonderful 1st evening back since our Fall Break. Lot's of nice plates were served and we were excited to see so many familiar and new faces. For a Thursday, our restaurant was full. Fresh Veal and our Chesapeake Cioppino headlined our menu. Here's a close-up! The Veal Chop averaged 14 ounces. Milk Fed and Fresh. We grilled it to a Mid Rare Temp and plated it over a Root Vegetable Medley with White Sweet Potato, Carrot, Red Onion and Celery and finished with Veal Demi-Glace. And served with a side of slow cooked and tender Collard Greens. The Collards and Sweet Potatoes were sourced from our friends at Garner's Produce of Nomini Grove, VA Our Chesapeake Cioppino featured the very best of the Chesapeake Region and the Northern Neck. Fresh Rockfish, Oysters, Jumbo Lump Blue Crab, and Eastern Shore, VA Littleneck Clams. Cioppino actually originated in the San Francisco Bay Region of California. It is a staple on most San Francisco Bay area seafood restaurant menus and we loved it when we visited a few years ago, A tomato based broth loaded with garlic and seafood. We gave it a 'Denson's Twist' and added some Garners Produce Veggies, such as peppery Arugula, Yellow Squash, Zucchini, and Tomatoes. And of course, the Delicious Oysters and Jumbo Lump Crab arrived to us today from Capt. Faunce Seafood of Montross, VA. And it is imperative to serve up some Crusty French Bread to help get all of that delicious Broth!

At Denson's Chesapeake Bay 'Farm to Table', we normally like to keep things a bit 'Low Key' for 364 days of the year' (Food is our Focus)! But in October each year, we let it go 'All Out' for one day only. (In a Denson's sort of way) because of something that is near and dear to our hearts. BREAST CANCER AWARENESS. 5 years ago, we decided to promote a benefit that we appropriately dubbed 'Bivalves for Boobies'. This event has TAKEN OFF and grown every year. So much, that we needed to transition from the Denson's patio and courtyard to our entire parking lot. This year, specifically Sunday, October 27th, 1PM to 5PM we will be featuring the popular and local sounds of 'Hard to Tell'. Denson's will be serving Oysters in a variety of ways, a Soup/Chowder (Rocky has not decided as of yet) and Locally made Pretzel with Beer Cheese. Adult and 'Non-Adult' beverages will be available for purchase. And don't forget about our Decorated Bra Contest! All Bras will be a featured attraction in our Restaurant. But the VERY most important part of this event....Proceeds go to the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation. Lets do our part to help make ALL CANCER a thing of the past! We truly hope to see you on the 27th! Feel free to bring your chairs/umbrellas. No outside food or drink will be allowed. P.S. we have some very wonderful friends that are volunteering their time to make this a very special event. Thank you soooo much!
