BBQ at Oasis
If you can’t make the dinner, don’t worry. Two seasonal barbecue specials will run all through June, each for just $25; these will help guests to herald the beginning of the grilling season and the re-opening of Oasis’ refreshing courtyard patio.
The specials will run all month and include a starter course of watermelon salad or gazpacho soup and a “chef’s selection” of dessert. During the week of June 11-16, the entree will be cedar plank salmon with house pickled red onion and during the week of June 17-23 he will feature a dry rub crusted flank steak with baked calypso beans.
