One of our go-to ‘cue restaurants, Fahrenheit 250, has made some recent additions and added some deals. Yes, it’s known for its smoked brisket, pulled pork and St. Louis-style pork ribs, but let’s look at the menu add-ons:
- New appetizers ($9-$14.50) are pork belly tacos, pulled pork- and cream cheese-stuffed pasilla pepper, and pickled white prawns.
- The “specialty sandwiches” ($12-$12.50) now include tri-tip and portobello mushroom, crawfish hoagie and a Cuban sandwich made with smoked pulled pork and Niman Ranch ham.
- Heaping “grit bowls” will be around for the cold months ($12). One is a combo of South Carolina grits (more of a polenta, really) topped with chunks of brisket and portobello mushrooms, pickled onion, tomato and Parmesan cheese. The other is those same grits, with shreds of pulled pork, white corn, jalapeno pepper, sharp cheddar cheese and microgreens.
More news: 250 has a brief menu of lunch specials (11 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays), which offers a choice from seven sandwiches and the two grit bowls, with one side, for $10. Also, a new happy hour (3 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays) has an eight-item “bites” menu.
One more thing: Coming in January is dinner for two, with a bottle of wine, for $35. Entrees will include steamed crabs with ribs (Jan. 6-11), Cornish game hen with greens (Jan. 13-18), salmon with Brussels sprouts (Jan. 20-25), and prime rib with cheese grits (Jan. 27-Feb. 1). Dine-in only.
