New on the Menu at Cup Cafe

September 10, 2012 |

Cup Café at Hotel Congress has revealed a brand new menu that not only has updated food items, but a fresh new face.

Some of the delicious new additions include:

Cubano – The sandwich that gained a following at Maynards has found a new home across the street on Cup’s lunch menu.  The Cubano features braised pork stuffed into a bakery roll and pressed with Gruyere cheese, caramelized onions, and jalapeno

Peloponnese – a light lunch or small appetizer; a unique, flavorful trio of red pepper, chimichurri-jalapeno, and eggplant-roasted garlic hummus, with marinated Feta, country olive spread, cucumber-tomato salad and griddled pita.

Rigatoni Con Pollo – large tube pasta tossed with house-smoked natural chicken, fresh cream, garlic, basil pesto, tomatoes, spinach and fresh grated Parmesan cheese (lunch and dinner)

Thai Fisherman’s Stew –  a colorful and savory mix of fresh fish, sea scallops, fresh clams and prawns, simmered with potatoes, zucchini, eggplant, chiles and garlic in a green curry broth served over jasmine rice (dinner)

Some of Cup’s classic dishes have received an update, too, like the Gila Monster – house-made Southwest style meatloaf with green chile, caramelized onions and corn, with jalapeno-cilantro dressing on toasted sourdough

Cup regulars may be used to seeing the famous drawings from cowboy artist Pete Martinez as they open the menu; but the menu has received quite a “face” lift – the first page now features John Dillinger’s infamous smirk – hand-drawn by local artist and Hotel Congress’ in-house designer, Hunter King.   The new version also has the red-accented breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert menus tucked together in a sleek black cover.

Cup Café at Hotel Congress is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Breakfast is from 7am-4pm; lunch 11am – 4pm; dinner 4pm – 10pm Sun – Thurs , and until midnight  on Fri & Sat.
