Thought you might like to know:  Café Presse chef de cuisine Dre Neeley will roll out his new Spring 2015 menu on Thursday, April 9.

Asparagus, watercress, spring onions and garlic, escarole, leeks and morels are just some of the spring produce ready to make their appearance.  On the meatier side, look for quail, spicy pork-beef sausages, clams and trout.   And there will even be a new vegetarian entree inspired by the city of Nice.
