RAIL Pay at the Table System!

Rail-payment-logo-250 FinalTableSafeLogoFile3

 

We are proud to announce we have transitioned over to the TableSafe’s RAIL system, which allows our guests to pay at the table! We are the only restaurant in Snohomish County with this new technology, and we are excited for all the benefits it has to offer!

The main reason we decided to implement RAIL is for the security of our guests. The RAIL system allows the guest to view their check for accuracy, split items if necessary, and swipe a debit or credit card without it leaving their site. This prevents identity and credit card theft, and each and every transaction is encrypted so your information cannot be shared, and our system cannot be breached!

So, how does it work?

When you have completed your dining experience with us, your server will present you with a digital guest check.
raildevice11It will light up for you to view your check on the screen to make sure the check is accurate. Then it will give you options of how you would like to pay (cash or card), and allow you to easily select a tip percentage. If you select card, it will prompt you to swipe your card right from the device.

It will ask you for a signature, which you can sign using the stylus pen attached to the device.

You will then be able to request a printed copy of your receipt, or have it emailed to you so you can keep a digital copy.

This new system is quick, convenient, safe, and EASY! You will get the opportunity to see what it is all about on your next visit! Restaurants in countries around the world have been using this technology for years, so it’s great for us in the US to catch up and focus more on security and what seems to be working so well everywhere else!

November 11th we hosted our 2nd Annual “An Evening at Emory’s for ChildHope”, benefiting Housing Hope.

We closed the restaurant to prepare for this amazing fundraising event that was so successful last year. It allowed the opportunity to support homeless and low-income children in Snohomish County. We included a raffle, silent auction, and special appeal.

Our staff volunteered their time to support Housing Hope and be a part of this wonderful event. We also had a former employee come back to volunteer and help for the second year in a row. Our vendors and suppliers also donated food, wine, and beer to help support the ChildHope program.

If you would like to learn more about ChilHope, click here. You can also read more on our fundraising efforts and partnerships with Housing Hope here.

This year we helped raise over $30,000 for ChildHope! A huge thank you to Housing Hope, our staff, our suppliers & vendors, and those who attended this event to help raise awareness and raise money for the ChildHope program! We could not have done any of it without all of you!

What’s Happening at Emory’s!

NewHoursStarting June 1, we will open our lounge at 1pm for Happy Hour!

We had a nice little run with great weather very early this year, and are prepared for more nice weather for the rest of the Spring/Summer season. And that means opening early so that our great diners have the opportunity to soak up more sun on our deck, or stay cool in our lounge!

We will continue to offer dinner at 4pm, and every Sunday we open the lounge and dining room at 1pm for Happy Hour and dinner.

Did you know Happy Hour is also available on the entire deck? Every day 1-6pm, and Sun-Thurs 8pm-Close (weather permitting).

 

GreenwallsWe also had a slight facelift throughout the restaurant, and added a little pop of color! Still stays with our lodge style, but really adds some nice accents. This is a photo taken from our banquet room, but you’ll see some of this green on the walls in the dining room, lounge, and front entryway as well!

 

 

FathersDayDon’t forget to treat your Dad in June!! Bring him to Emory’s for a great night out!

May is Celiac Awareness Month. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by the ingestion of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.  An estimated 1 in 141 Americans has celiac disease, yet 83% of those who have it are either undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

We offer a separate Gluten Free Menu that showcases the items guests can select without having to scan through the regular menu. Cynthia Kupper, a Registered Dietitian with the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG), prepared the information on the menu. We can also create Gluten Free pizza, plus we have Redbridge Gluten Free Beer.

Food intolerances and food allergies are not topics restaurants we take lightly. When guests express concerns with certain foods, or ingredients they cannot consume, our Chef ensures they can still enjoy their meal without worry. We allow our Chef and his culinary team the freedom of being creative so that a guest doesn’t feel as though there are any restrictions to their diet or food intolerance.

A food intolerance is different from a food allergy because it’s a non-allergenic food hypersensitivity. We treat both the same in terms of severity.

And although we don’t point out other food intolerances in our menu or with a separate menu, we can customize items or work with what you’re craving in order to make something you will enjoy. Simply let your server or a manager know!

Rulo Winery & Pairings

Emory’s is proud to offer one of the most extensive restaurant wine lists in Snohomish County, comprised of a superb variety of Northwest and California wines. We also offer a great list of wines by the glass which changes monthly.

We are fortunate enough to live in an amazing wine region here in Washington state. We are proud to be the only restaurant in the greater Snohomish County to feature Rulo Winery on our bottle and wines by the glass list. Emory visited the area and came across Rulo while wine tasting. He quickly built a relationship with the owners, Kurt and Vicki, and it has become one of his favorite wines! Each month we will do a blog entry on different wineries that we feature on our menu, and pairings from our dinner menu. This month: Rulo Winery!

You should really take some time to visit the About section of the Rulo Winery website. Kurt and Vicki both had careers in the medical field. They fulfilled that part of life, and decided to pursue a passion: wine! But don’t expect us to tell you their story – go visit their winery and see and share their excitement!

It’s very impressive to read their differences from the “big guys”, and how they take full ownership of every aspect of the winery. When you walk into their tasting room, you interact with them, and they will gladly tell their story. They don’t use a third party distributor, so you would think their wine would be distributed to their wine club, those who come to their tasting room, or local restaurants, bars, or shops. When we are ready to place an order, we find out when they plan to visit the west side of the state. They pack up their car and personally deliver our order to Emory’s on Silver Lake. This experience makes it a lot more personal and exciting for those tasting their wines. They can answer all the questions, and you can get a feel for the heart and soul they’ve put into their business.

Rulo produces nine different bottles of wine, and are already sold out of their 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon and their 2010 Chardonnay.

We currently have the 2011 Birch Creek Chardonnay, the 2007 Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon (the one that’s sold out!), the 2009 Syrah, and the 2009 “Silo” Syrah on our menu by the bottle. We offer the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon by the glass as well.

Our lounge manager and wine guru, Gary Michaels, chose items from our dinner menu that would pair exquisitely with these Rulo wines. Now you can try a new amazing wine and know what food it’s best with!

Here are the tasting notes for each wine *From the Rulo Winery website*, along with what menu item would pair well!
2011 Rulo Birch Creek Vineyard Chardonnay:  Light straw in color. A nose-full of baking pastry crust and apples; followed by a bouquet of tropical banana and mango. A rich, lush mouth feel from malo-lactic fermentation with fruit flavors of banana, apricot and hints of beeswax and matchstick. The creamy toasted French oak and smoky lees character will immediately make you think crème brulee. We’ve traded the stick for a glass as this is the adult version of our childhood favorite Creamsicle!

~Pairs well with the Creamy Seafood Risotto or the current Chef Oscar’s Three Course Dinner Special: Lobster and Dungeness Crab Shepherd’s Pie

2007 Rulo Horse Heaven Hills Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon: Inky deep purple in color, the nose shows cassis, graphite, plum and blackberry preserve with slightly smoky French oak overtones. The wine is plush and thick on the palate giving an impression of sweetness, yet it is fermented completely dry. Elements of blackberry, black cherry and framboise are supported by fine grain tannins in the finish. Fun to drink now but cellaring this wine will be rewarding.

~An excellent choice with Emory’s Prime Top Sirloin or Tenderloin of Beef Bourguignon

2009 Rulo Syrah: Beautiful in color; violet/purple hue. Intense nose of black raspberry, violets, Hoisin plum sauce, campfire and grilled meats with a hint of graphite. Again, raspberries and flowers dominate the mouth with acidity, phenolic texture and a jam-like sweetness, however the wine is totally dry. A mouthful of bright red fruits.

~Try this wine with our Penne Jambalaya, or if you prefer chicken, the Chicken Breast Chimichurri

2009 Rulo Silo Syrah: Deep purple/violet, opaque in color. Framboise and Kirsch elements in the nose with an earthy, heme/iron mineral component in the nose that Syrah from Clifton Hill has. The mouth has tremendous weight/viscosity and filled with raspberry which I find to be the dominant flavor. Although this is all Syrah, it could fool people into thinking it is Grenache from the Southern Rhone. A very long, almost weightless finish of almost one minute.

~Delicious with the Braised Lamb Shank or the Lake House Bistro Steak

A tour of must-try wine features

“As fragrant as a stroll through a summertime farmers’ market, our bright and juicy Chardonnay beckons with aromas of apple blossom, ripe pear, peach and sweet lemon drop.” The balance between bright, juicy fruit and a touch of oak make this the perfect wine to enjoy on a nice summer day. Sit on our deck, bask in the sun, and pair this great wine with one of our entrée salads–we suggest the Crab & Shrimp Salad or the Seasonal Greens With Salmon.                   $7/Glass                              $26/Bottle

 

 

 

 

 

“Bright red cherry, violets, vanilla and pie crust aromas, punctuated by an alluring smokiness, are a vivacious introduction to this Oregon vintage.” A blend of different vineyard sites in Oregon, this wine is a fruit-forward, ready-to-drink style of Pinot Noir designed to highlight the variety’s best characteristics.                    $12/Glass                            $39/Bottle

 

 

 

A perfect example of what perfect growing conditions have to offer! Inky deep purple in color, the nose shows cassis, graphite, plum, and blackberry preserve with slightly smoky French oak overtones.                           $13.5/Glass                            $49/Bottle
