Just in time for the sultry August weather, La Madia introduces a cooling Poached Shrimp Salad with Shaved Vegetables (tender poached shrimp, crisp shaved fennel, radish, carrot, cucumber, and frisee in an a truffled vinaigrette; Lunch: $12 and Dinner: $9 without shrimp). Fox will also serve a new Clam Pizza (white clams with fresno chilies, finished with lightly pickled cucumbers; $15).
La Madia also unveils their Market Risotto, which will change daily, made with ingredients from the market including vegetables, shellfish, and more (Dinner only; $15).
Other additions to the menu include: Pappardelle with Chicken Ragu paired with a rich and velvety sauce, vegetables and house-made pasta (Dinner only; $16), Pan-Roasted Rushing Waters Trout (trout raised in artesian springs atop a tangle of sweet corn, leeks, and tender green beans; $15), and also a deeply-flavored vegetable soffritto with Seared Red Grouper (Dinner only; $19).
The midsummer menu is consistent with the philosophy behind La Madia: seasonal, quality selections in a warm, welcoming environment. Jonathan Fox’s new menu highlights his simple approach to quality and service that gives guests a fresh, bold experience every time.
