creating a pub menu.

I want to present an idea of using unused kitchen equipment in the bar at my local ski hill to create a pub fare menu. I have do not know what the kitchen looks like so I don't know if this is feasible or not. Here are my ideas for a menu I would like to present to the owner and manager.

deep fried mushrooms
deep fried pickles
steak fries (deep fried slices of beef)brushetta
artichoke dip
sweet potato fries w/ aioli
bacon wrapped scallop with maple chili glaze
fish and chips
fried chicken
bbq chicken panini
steak and mushroom panini
steak quesadilla
chicken quesadilla


What do you guys think?? any to Omit or add on. I want to keep cost and ingredient lists to a minimal but also want a good variety. Again this is just an idea and I do not know how feasible this is. I said it was for a ski hill but I also want to be able to market to the general population and not just a niche market.

edit: wings are a given!

Sounds like expensive pub food.

I would be turned off by most of that stuff.

Who wants garlic mayonnaise (aioli) on some sweet patater fries? lol

Greasy simple bar food > complicated pub fare. Know what I mean?

I don't know how skiers eat, so maybe your proposed menu fits the kind of people that ski there.

But personally, I dislike when places complicate and jazz up standard bar noms.

It is a bit of an upscale menu, in my area there isn't already a place that does that.

I also want to stay away from the stuff that is already served by our Canteen . I see what you mean though about greasy bar food. Sometimes I have to remember not to go too complicated (I used to worked for a high end hotel chain so I am used to the fancier side of things.) I want to try and have most items price between the $7 and $10 dollar range.

BTW try aioli and sweet potato fries, its one of my favorite drunk foods. Also thank you for your input.

I would have no control over the alcohol unfortunately, but I will have a chat with the head bartender. There are some really good microbreweries in the province.

And sorry I dont think any of the things that were on your original menu would be too expensive. You have to remember (and of course this is in reference to ski areas in the northeast) skiing is a very expensive hobby. Ski's are in upwards of $500 and up thats without $200 boots and rentals for the day are in the area of $75 and ski lift tickets are in the area of $75. A cheap bar food bill should be the last of there worries.... just my opinion. Nothing on the menu you stated seemed like it would be very expensive anyways.

Pouting is the biggest seller in the canteen so I don't really want to make stuff they have, that's why I don't have any burgers on the menu either.

People are cutting their spending, we are seeing it everywhere. I would like to be able to offer an inexpensive menu so that people buy food from the hill more Instead of bringing food from home. And I love the idea of soup, mainly the chili!!

Concur with the maple dipping sauce for the sweet potato fries. The Yardhouse has that and it's awesome, only thing that would be better is maple BACON dipping sauce.
