While the cool weather slowly gives way to sunshine, we at Stanford Grill will continue to create a warm and friendly place to bring the whole family, right down to the flavorful and decadent entrees.

This week at Copper Canyon, we’re going a little bit Italian. If you are a lover of cheese, and we have to admit we are, you just might need to visit our Glenarden location to try out this week’s feature: Chicken Parmesan! Hand breaded chicken breast is pan fried to perfection and topped with housemade tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. Served with a side of linguine topped with marinara and a side of sautéed spinach, this dish offers a little bit of everything. Have a friend who loves Italian food? Bring them along! Share a bottle of wine or your favorite cocktail, and make an evening of it. Available at Glenarden only until Sunday!

Choosing the right wine to pair with your meal is the key to enhancing your overall dining experience and at Stanford Grill we take pride in our wines! The goal is for your food to compliment and enhance your enjoyment of the wine, and vice versa. So, we are here to help you choose the right wine for the right taste!
Let’s start with the cheeses. White Zinfandel goes well with bleu and fresher cheeses, while a Riesling goes well with many types, especially buttery or hard cheeses. As far as main courses go, the rule of thumb is usually: white wines go with white meats and red wines pair well with red meats. More specifically, lightly prepared poultry goes well with Chardonnay or Chablis, while poultry with heavier sauces can pair with a light, fruity red. Seafood varies, but most whites will do.
Now for my favorite, dessert! The darker the dish, the darker you should go with your wine. A nice sweet port is always suggested, unless you are feeling for a bit of sweet dessert brandy!
Hopefully these tips were helpful and improve the flavors of your dish!
