Gertrude’s New Summer Menu

Gertrude's Sweet Pea Martini
While it might be a little too hot outside to stroll the Desert Botanical Garden, it is the perfect time to make your way to the Garden’s restaurant, Gertrude’s, as it just unveiled its new summer menu. Executive Chef Matthew Taylor has created a seasonal menu full of fresh and unexpected flavors, like a martini made with sweet peas and chocolate raviolis.
“Summer always re-energizes us about produce and the beautiful vegetables that the season brings particularly tomatoes, asparagus, English peas and a variety of peppers,” says Chef Taylor.
