Kingfisher “Summer Road Trip: Down South” Menu Now Available

Kingfisher Summer Road Trip: Down South
August 24 – September 4
2564 E. Grant Road
More Info

Kingfisher is concluding its culinary “road trip” featuring food from “Down South” alongside their regular menu through September 4.

Previous summer 2016 road trip destinations include the Midwest and Southwest, and East coast. Looking back over the years, previous destinations have covered much of the United States most well known, as well as obscure dining destinations.

Chef Jim Murphy prepared the special menu featuring dishes such as Creole Barbecue Shrimp and Grits, Grilled Texas Redfish, and Whole Roasted Pig. Pastry chef Marianne Banes’ comforting sweets make an appearance, while bartender Eric Smith presents his variations on southern cocktails.

The highlighted Louisiana beer, Abita Andygator, has a dry finish to pair nicely with the southern classics.
