Pairing of the Day: June 27-July 1, 2011
Cheddar-and-Onion Smashed Burgers

Pairing: Hoppy pale ale: Dale's Pale Ale.
Watermelon and Squid Salad
Gorgonzola, Fig and Pancetta Pizza
Whole Grilled Fish with Crispy Garlic and Red Chiles
Deluxe Lobster and Potato Chip Rolls
"Putting potato chips inside sandwiches has always been a favorite trick of ours," says chef Jon Shook. He and co-chef Vinny Dotolo serve chips on Tabasco-spiked lobster salad tucked into buttery toasted buns.
