Logan’s Autumn Celebration!

What a sensational September here in Ann Arbor; but the change to fall comes quickly. Join us for our annual Autumn Celebration. It’s five courses of Chef Thad’s cuisine, paired with a special selection of five wines. We always look forward to share the bounty of the harvest with our families and friends, and this is the perfect opportunity.

Logan’s Autumn Celebration
October 11th-15th
$100 per Person (for food and wine)

Think Pink (Drinks)

Logan is pleased to recognize October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please enjoy our house cocktail “Pink Pomander”, and for each one purchased throughout the month, we will be donating $1 to the University of Michigan Breast Care Center. It’s a great cause, and a terrific cocktail. Let’s raise some money, and find a cure!

Chef’s Garden Spot

One of the benefits of having Chef’s Garden is now we have a means to compost our kitchen waste. Even from our little kitchen, we were able to collect about 20 gallons of waste per day! That’s somewhere over 1,000 gallons so far that otherwise would have gone into a landfill, presumably. Just thought you’d like to know.

Welcome Back!

It’s September, a new school year is starting, and Ann Arbor’s seasonal cycle resets. It’s always a little bittersweet to see summer go, but late summer nights are just right for dining al fresco, especially since it hasn’t been the most ideal summer so far for that. As we gear up for football games and the changing colors of autumn, enjoy the fleeting beauty of now.

Cocktail Hour…

Speaking of seasonal changes, here’s a heads up for all you Summer fans out there! It’s time for us to revamp our “House Specialty Cocktails” and come up with some new selections for fall. We’ve been adding some new items to the bar, and here’s a partial list. Ann Arbor’s own Waterhill Vodka and Gin, Two James “Nain Rouge” absinthe, Zucca Rabarero, and Becherovka. Want to know what they are? Or, better yet, what we’re doing with them? Now’s the perfect time to check out some unbridled creativity until the new list is done… There’s four front-row seats at the bar, come and get ‘em.

Chef's Garden Spot

But, hey, it is still summer after all, and summer means gardening. We are so excited! Chef’s garden is coming along beautifully, and we are starting to reap the first produce of the season. Ground cherries have been super-abundant, and the baby eggplant are delicious. We got our first squash, a stately forest-green and mottled one. We think it is a kobucha, a Japanese variety, but when you grow them from seeds, they don’t have any labels! Who knew? It is pretty tasty, whatever it is… We are coming into the heirloom tomato season, and we’re pulling our own mozzarella for Chef’s signature Caprese Salad. It’s not something to miss. That’s the news for now from Logan; hope to see you all very soon!

Chef’s Summer Tasting Menu

The response has been terrific to Chef Thad’s three-course “Summer Tasting Menu”. As Chef keeps fine tuning the courses, it remains a lighter, more casual option to our five-course tasting menu. It’s just perfect for a hot summer evening. From the following menu, you can select an appetizer, a salad and an entrée, all for just $30!

Appetizer
Ceviche or Asparagus Tempura Salad: Ginger Bibb Lettuce or Fennel

Entrée
Michigan Perch Tempura, Saffron Ravioli, or Braised Short Ribs

We will also be offering an optional flight of three specially chosen wines for $20 to complete your dining experience. Conveniently, this menu will be fully available on weekends. By the way, we are often able to offer our five-course menu earlier on summer weekends. We love to do them when we can; don’t be afraid to ask…

Logan’s Summer Celebration!

Don’t let summer slip by without having one last Logan hurrah! Join us for our Summer Celebration: We’ll be pairing Chef’s delicious Five Course Tasting Menu, with a lovingly chosen flight of five wines to accentuate each course. It’s a great opportunity to reconnect with friends who’ve been away for summer, or to decompress after your move-in. Get your Ann Arbor on!

New Menu Items!

As we mentioned in a previous month’s newsletter, Chef Thad has been working on a menu update for Spring and Summer. It is done, and ready for your enjoyment. While there are changes throughout the menu, of particular note is our appetizer section. Chef has made some a little smaller, and reduced the prices, accordingly. We hope you’ll find it easier to try something new, or have a lighter meal based on small plates. See the new menu for yourself on our website http://logan-restaurant.com/menu, or better yet, just come on in and taste it!

New Cocktail List!

It’s finally warming up, and it is cocktail season! Check out our expanded cocktail list. We’ve added a “Classic Martini” and “Classic Manhattan”, based on The Botanist Gin, and High West’s Rendezvous Rye, respectively. Both are really impressive. The Ginger Rickey is back! It’s part of an entirely new section of “Mules”, cocktails based on our own ginger soda and citrus. Perfect summer sippers… We’re also now offering Jack Rudy Cocktail Co.’s Small Batch Tonic. It’s lighter and fresher, and it makes a great gin and tonic.

Ann Arbor Restaurant Week

It’s that time again! Join us for Ann Arbor’s celebration of dining out, Restaurant Week! As always, we will be offering a special 3-course menu for just $28. For fans of wine, we will have flights of 3 special selections to complement your menu available, as well. As it is our busiest week of the year, reservations are highly recommended. Even now, many popular times are filling up, so don’t wait too long to book a table. Remember, we do have our bar, and, weather permitting, our outside seating that we don’t reserve, so we will be able to accommodate some walk-in seating, even if we are otherwise sold out. Hope to see you here!
