Friends-Giving: Fresh Corn GrillBy: Brittany Nicole La Hue
We often think of Thanksgiving as a time for family. But we often forget about expressing our gratitude for the friends that we hold near and dear, either as part of our extended family or our family-away-from-home. This season, take your friends out to a delicious pre-Thanksgiving meal at one of West Hollywood’s most group-accessible, produce-centered restaurants to tell them thank you.
This week, we’re featuring Fresh Corn Grill for its fresh, natural, seasonal food that reminds us of an authentic home-cooked Thanksgiving meal.
You’ll be sure to get all your food groups in at Fresh Corn Grill. Start with a soup or salad: Fresh Corn Chowder and Butternut Squash Soup make us feel like it’s finally fall! Along with traditional salads, you can spice it up with the Fresh Corn Tostada Salad or the Southwestern salad, featuring Caribbean black beans and tomatillo dressing.
Next you’ll face the difficult decision of choosing an entree. Fresh Corn Grill’s pizzas are ideal for treating friends to a meal. Split a traditional Margarita pizza, eat healthy with the Smoked Salmon pizza or think outside the box with the Cajun Shrimp or Cajun Chicken option. You’ll also have your choice of delicious sandwiches, like the Caprese and Grilled Chicken, or pasta infused with vegetables such as the Sundried Tomato Pasta or the Grilled Vegetable Pasta.
It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without fresh seasonal vegetables. Luckily, Fresh Corn Grill has no shortage of yummy options. Split the large Fresh Corn Vegetable Bowl with your friends, or order individual sides: grilled asparagus, grilled zucchini, garlic roasted potatoes, Caribbean black beans, red cabbage slaw, wild brown rice and, of course, grilled corn await.
Celebrate eating so well with a little treat. The Apple Tart Tatin will remind you of homemade apple pie, and the brownie will reward you for eating your vegetables. Bring the kids along – Fresh Corn Grill even has kid’s menu choices that your children will want to eat!
Fresh Corn Grill is open from 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily.
