Rachel’s Back!!!

About 2 months ago we hired a chef and launched a new menu. Many of you have seen and partaken of it. It was and is fantastic! Unfortunately, shortly after the launch, this amazing chef we hired, Rachel, suffered a recurrence of an old injury and had to leave us. We soldiered on and continued to execute the menu she created to the best of our abilities. Many have greatly enjoyed our food in that time and I’m ecstatic to announce: Rachel has returned! With the help of a brace, ice and some creative scheduling, Chef Rachel is once again at the helm of the UMC kitchen and some great new items coming for the fall. Here is a sampling of the new menu to come in the next few weeks!


Spinach Salad w/ Poppyseed dressing, Roasted Beets and Frizzled Prosciutto



Butternut Squash Ravioli w/ Sage Brown Butter



Russian-style Pierogies w/ Candied Beets, Dill Creme Fraiche and Feta



Also on the new menu: Grown-Up Grilled Cheese, New Waffle varieties, expanded selection of flatbreads and Home-style Macaroni and Cheese w/ 3 cheeses, Prosciutto and Roasted Red Pepper.


Keep watch, gentle readers! Great things to come at the UMC!
