It’s summer, set phasers for stunning!

The summer finally starts today with Wolverine and the Alamo kitchen couldn't be more excited to see the big films of the year hit our screens and we are ready with some new grub to satisfy you while enjoying the blockbusters.  There are also feasts and special food events to keep you chewing in your seat.

The summer will kick off with with a special menu featuring, what I believe will be the film of the summer, Star Trek .  Our crack staff of geeks and nerds were able to help us come up with some galactic culinary delights from the federation as well as some fantastic coffees, cocktails and spritzers to enhance your mood and make you fuzzier than a tribble on holiday.
In addition to those we will be featuring the May 15th release of Angels and Demons with some lovely Italian Suppli and a sweet berry trifle confused with angel and devil's food cakes.

We will also be adding on the richly praised Matango mushroom pizza to our regular menu.  This heavenly four cheese pizza with aged manchego, asiago, argentine parmesan and pecorino romano then topped with oyster, shiitakeand portobello gained a rabid following when it was featured as a special for The Watchmen and during SXSW and it is here to stay.
