Catch this daily lunch special at the Tavern on the Summit.

Tavern on the Summit has a hearty daily lunch special that pleases seafood lovers. The Grilled Shrimp Salad has two hickory grilled shrimp skewers atop either a Tavern or Caesar Salad. Hmm, their Caesar is one of my favorite Caesars in town—chopped Romaine, croutons, Tavern on the Summit’s signature Dressing with shredded Parmesan on top, and anchovies if requested. But today I will try the shrimp with the Tavern Salad with Ranch dressing paired with a glass of Kings Estate Pinot Gris.

The entrée-sized Tavern Salad arrives in a large bowl topped with two skewers of five grilled shrimp per skewer. A hot, delicious slice of cheese toast is served with the salad. The firm, pink, grill marked shrimp glide off the skewers, adding protein to this lovely mix of crisp greens, cherry tomatoes, bacon, purple cabbage, carrots, and homemade croutons. Each bite is a delicious mix of hot and cold and a synthesis of creamy dressing, crunchy veggies and succulent, tender and delicate shrimp. And the fruity acidity of the wine pairing makes for a delightful lunch.
