Mathew's Kitchen is offering three courses for $50 per person -- and you even get choices! Start with French onion soup or winter salad, which is bibb lettuce, dried cherries, toasted nuts, oranges, feta cheese and Mayfair dressing. For the second course we'd go with the braised lamb shank with roasted vegetables and barley, but you can also get butter poached shrimp, herb roasted chicken with cranberry sauce and cornbread stuffing, or prime rib. Finish up with a homemade half-baked turtle brownie with peppermint ice cream.
