SMOKED SALMON ALL SEASON FILLET PLATTER
SMOKED SALMON ALL SEASON FILLET PLATTER

Our most popular platter of all time. Up to four glorious flavors of boneless Atlantic smoked salmon featuring a strip of each of our spice blends: gentle, classic Dill; punctuated, lemony Black Pepper & Coriander; savory, zesty Cajun; and soft, sublime Traditional. Served with ample rows of crackers or Haus-made crostini (perfect with our smoked salmon), scallion cream cheese, and a splash of seasonally-appropriate garnish, this platter is nearly always the first to go at any party.

ANTIPASTI PLATTER
ANTIPASTI PLATTER

We make our meats in small batches, right here in Duluth! We source our meats from local (Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Minnesota) farms and use the freshest ingredients to create perfect flavors. We do not wholesale our meats, so our small shop in Canal Park is the only place to get it.

Our Antipasti Platter includes ample portions of smoked meats, cured meats, veggie charcuterie, cheeses, and olives. Arranged cleverly on a large platter. Meats may include Salamini, Bison Pastrami, Smoked Pork Loin with Rosemary and Honey, Chorizo, Pepperoni, Berkshire Ham, and/or Saucisson Sec. Cheeses include a selection of local Mid-Western cheddar, fresh chevre, and more. Whatever the combination, this tray is delicious!

THE SMÖRGÅSBORD
THE SMÖRGÅSBORD

The ultimate buffet! This board offers a little bit of everything. Buttery smoked whitefish with lemon garnish, a savory blend of assorted salumi, rolled cuts of sweet smoked ham, and mini loaves of rich country pâté round out the proteins; a choice of handmade boursin or pimiento cheese is paired with select regionally sourced cheeses; portions of tangy cornichon pickles and robust sauerkraut boldly compliment the cheese and protein selections. This platter comes with crackers or crostinis—based on availability—and is garnished with fresh herbs and sweety drop peppers.

PESCATARIAN

Pesky eating habits? We beg to differ. Have our fresh, unique pescatarian platter, brimming with gifts from the land and sea (in sandwich form, of course). This simple platter offers two vibrant choices, but we cut them all in half so your choice should only be which one to eat first: the Sitka Sushi, the Slammin Gordon, or the Fuzzy Bunny.
