Simplicity is grilled bread rubbed with Peach Mountain garlic topped with ripe tomato salad, drizzled with fresh green olive oil and a sprinkling of ricotta salata.
These crispy little fritters do justice to the ubiquitous summer vegetable, zucchini. The fritters combine Greek flavors of lemon, feta and oregano and are served with a wildly colored, refreshing beet tzatziki. Absolutely sublime. 8.
Winds Shrimp Cocktail
I love fresh horseradish and there’s nothing better with horseradish than juicy domestic shrimp. Here we combine the Latin flavors of chipotle, lime, and cilantro with shrimp and avocado and serve it on top of creamy horseradish panna cotta.
Petit Tuna Niçoise
This is a deconstructed version of the ubiquitous Southern French dish. It has all the components, just in a little different arrangement.
Braised Green Chili Pork Tacos
Three tacos are stuffed with tender pork shoulder braised with tomatillos, Anaheim, jalapeño and chipotle chilis. Topped with cheddar, lime slaw, avocado and a spicy red sauce.
Italian Spidini with Bagna Cauda
Skewered sourdough bread and fresh mozzarella cheese are brushed with olive oil and browned until melted and crispy. Served on a bed of roasted grape tomatoes and drizzled with hot bagna cauda.
Figs, Pigs and Goats
First of the season figs, stuffed with fresh goat cheese and wrapped with Nueske’s bacon rubbed with cumin, black pepper and brown sugar. Broiled to tasty perfection until the bacon crisps, the goat cheese melts and the figs caramelize. Drizzled with Italian saba, a velvety syrup made from cooked grape must aged in wood barrels.
Winds Charcuterie Plate
A selection of Winds kitchen’s patés and terrines, including imported and domestic cured meats, pickles and house condiments.
Today’s selection of artisan cheeses is accompanied by a Medjool date and quince paste.
Balsamic Vinaigrette, Sesame Miso, Lemon Gorgonzola, Roasted Pear Vinaigrette
We’ve tweaked and updated our presentation a bit and I have to admit, it’s one of the best Caesar salads around. Romaine lettuce, Manchego cheese, homemade croutons and plump white anchovies with the traditional garlic and lemon dressing.
Our version features the first of the season Peach Mountain tomatoes and basil, along with a spicy tomato vinaigrette, fresh mozzarella, a sprinkling of J.Q.Dickinson salt and loads of farmer herbs. Let’s get this summer party started!
August is the best month…the best month for produce, the best month for vacation, and the best month for a birthday (the 13th, if you’re interested). This new salad juxtaposes the two sides of the Leo personality...the love of extravagance and a guilty conscience of moderation. Dig into local kale, pickled green beans, radish and Parmesan all on a smear of creamy house made whipped ricotta with Spanish inspired vinaigrette. Garnished with crispy amaranth, pumpkin seeds, millet and black rice.
Authentic ratatouille is a blend of vegetables and herbs that presents the flavors of garlic, basil and Mediterranean vegetables in all their splendor. This French staple is folded into crepes, napped with a red wine tomato sauce, drizzled with basil oil and garnished with mild goat cheese and tapenade.
Seared Halibut with Spanish Spices and Gazpacho Sauce
Meaty halibut is sprinkled with smoked paprika and cumin, then seared in a hot pan with cherry tomatoes from our local farmers.The just bursting tomatoes and the crispy fish are set on a pool of cool cucumber sauce. Served with fragrant saffron rice.

Set atop a luscious creamy corn and smoky bacon ragout and drizzled with tangy green herb sauce.
Duroc Long Bone Pork Chop with Brandied Cherries
A brined, antibiotic free pork chop is grilled and served with tart brandied cherries. Accompanied by creamy corn risotto. I know, not traditional, but oh so delicious.
Cornmeal Crusted Walleye with Warm Corn Salad
Ok Ohioans, this is our dish. In this preparation, a walleye fillet is dipped in a buttermilk marinade, rolled in cornmeal and pan-fried. Served with warm corn salad and a creamy beet sauce.
