Specialties For Two

Specialties For Two At The Shameless Carnivore

specialties for twoWe’re always looking for new ways to take the guest dining experience at The Shameless Carnivore to “the next level”. We gather a lot of inspiration from the cooks & kitchens we visit on our travels, and love passing along their family recipes, culinary creations & passion for great food to our guests. We have selected a number of dishes - personal favorites - which we offer to our guests. They require extra time for us to procure ingredients & prepare, so advance notice is appreciated (most, but not all, can be done with notice the morning of...). Our Specialties For Two are prepared in sufficient quantity to satisfy two persons, but the amount can be increased to serve a larger party if desired. All come with a host of appropriate side dishes.

Our Specialties For Two menu changes seasonally. Some dishes may also be added at any time if we're able to procure a unique ingredient that catches our attention! Possibilities range from rustic Mediterranean to exotic North African to fragrant & fresh Southeast Asian. Fresh game & seafood are always featured. To see our current offerings click here.

If you are interested in any of these options, please contact us. Pricing is market dependent for some items, but we can assure you of an amazing experience that is a great value! This dining special may not be available during busy holiday periods - please inquire.
