The professional caterer and head chef at Kelly’s Kitchen tantalizes taste buds with mouthwatering gourmet dishes, which pair perfectly with pours from the restaurant’s wine list. The asiago chicken over a bed of pasta ($15.95) tempts diners with a savory sauce of tomatoes, mushrooms, and kalamata olives, and the delightfully fresh cobb salad ($12.95) draws together once-hostile factions of food groups in a delicious peace treaty between greens, grilled chicken, avocado, and blue cheese. The kitchen maestro heightens the flavor of juicy cuts of petite filet mignon ($22.95) with coconut shrimp and a cherry-pepper dipping sauce, and blends the saucy zest of a half rack of st. louis barbecue ribs ($14.95) with tangy potato salad and coleslaw. As guests munch and nibble on fine selections of homemade fare, they can rinse palates and salad forks with crisp, fruity Ruffino Lumina pinot grigio ($19) or deep red, mellow, and brooding yellow tail merlot ($15).
