Guam Diner Bytes: Spring specials at Manhattan Steakhouse
If you are in the mood for something fresh out of the box and delicious, try out the new Spring Specials at the Manhattan Steakhouse. The Spring Specials are paired with wines recommended to enhance each dish.
At the time of my review, some of the ingredients had not yet arrived so I’ll be returning for a follow-up visit. What I did try out was the Fish Consomme ($9) which is made with Local fresh fish consomme. This rich broth is made with saffron, julienne vegetables, and fish quenelles. This is easily sharable by two or more diners.
Next was the Avocado Crab Meat Salad ($15), which features fresh avocado stuffed with lump crab meat tossed in lemon juice, mayonnaise and spices. This is also shareable and if you like lump crab, you’ll get more than you’d expect.
The Grapefruit Salad with Grilled Shrimp ($18) was a pleasant surprise. This has spinach and pink grapefruit tossed in a Dijon Vinaigrette and the topped with succulent grilled shrimp.
The Pasta Salad ($15) features fresh grilled vegetables paired with penne pasta tossed in a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette and topped with grated parmesan cheese. Served with grilled garlic focaccia bread slices. This is another fun and playful dish that is tasty as well as shareable.
