Our boned-out Lake Superior wild-caught smoked Lake Trout, which we brush with brown sugar during the smoking process, artfully arranged on a large platter. Served with butter crackers and gorgeously garnished. Local is beautiful, baby!

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) and a splash of seasonally-appropriate garnish, this platter is nearly always the first to go at any party.

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 Antipasto 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!

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.

Why do pizzas get to have exclusive rights to the term “meat lovers?” May we make our own humble contribution with a platter of protein for the ages? A hefty platter featuring the Pastrami Mommy, Gorilla, Cold Turkey, and Silence of the Lambwich.

Researching the Chef Salad, we couldn’t help but geek out about this old world title for what has become an American classic.
