Bacon-wrapped quail stars in Clover’s winter line-up

One of the most popular items on Clover’s new winter menu is stuffed quail, which owner Scott McCandless is calling an unexpected hit.

The dinner entree features cedar-roasted, bacon-wrapped quail stuffed with chicken-apple sausage, fennel and brioche and served with creamy polenta, grilled broccolini, marsala-cider jus and hazelnuts.

It’s rich and filling.

Still, consider starting with a bowl of the cream of mushroom soup, poured tableside over chevre-and-wild-mushroom duxelles and truffle creme fraiche, or a pomegranate salad with chili, lime, basil, feta, candied pumpkin seeds and avocado. Another option: Scott’s Cupcake Au Gratin Potatoes with sliced potatoes, truffle oil, Gruyere and Gorgonzola cheeses and nutmeg, all layered in a cupcake tin.

For lunch, there’s a new Hot Brown open-face sandwich with house-brined turkey breast, bacon mornay, pancetta, preserved tomato and Emmenthaler Swiss cheese.

Be sure to save room for dessert. Liz’s Chocolate Cheese Cake features dark chocolate cake features a chocolate wafer crust, candied cocoa nibs and, for balance, white chocolate crème anglaise.

Clover is at 913 E. Sharp Ave. Call (509) 487-2937. On the web:
