We think the promised warmer weather coming up calls for a taste of New Orleans flavor! This week at Stanford Grill, we are featuring our spin on the classic Shrimp & Grits dish that is served regularly in New Orleans restaurants from breakfast to dinner.

With smoky Andouille sausage, jumbo shrimp, aromatic vegetables, blackening seasoning and fresh tomato, all resting in creamy white grits, this dish sticks to its Creole roots. Let us transport you to Louisiana with this mouth-watering dish, available at Stanford Grill until Sunday!

It looks like ‪#‎Spring‬ may be making an appearance this week, and we are more than ready on the Gaithersburg ‪#‎Patio‬! With warmer weather and later sunsets, our patio works perfectly into the ideal date night–walk the boardwalk, watch the golden hour sun shimmer on the lake, and enjoy a delicious dinner with us in the Spring air. Top it all off with a bottle of sparkling wine and dessert and you’ll remember exactly why we love living here!

Kale Chicken Caesar Salad, and more facts about this trendy superfood

Chicken Kale Salad Feature

As spring and summer approach, we all aspire to eat a little healthier. But why sacrifice flavor in your search for nutrition? This week at Glenarden & Gaithersburg, we are featuring a Kale Chicken Caesar Salad that offers sustenance AND taste! Chopped kale is tossed in our creamy housemade caesar dressing, fresh French bread croutons, grated parmesan cheese and topped with a chicken breast that has been pounded out thin, dredged in panko, and pan-seared to golden brown perfection. With fresh ingredients that your body naturally craves, this kale salad is sure to please!

We all know that kale is the health-food fad of the day, but what else do we know about this dark green leafy vegetable? Here are a few facts about the ever-popular kale:

  • One serving of kale has more calcium than a small carton of milk and, gram for gram, more than twice the the amount of Vitamin C as an orange.
  • Kale was popular in Europe during Roman times and the Middle Ages, not arriving in the US until the 17th century.
  • The same nutrient that gives kale its trademark color, lutein, promotes healthy eyes and vision.
  • When grown in cold weather, kale grows a higher sugar content, making it taste better.

We’re pretty sure kale is here to stay, especially after eating this delicious salad! What do you think?
