Pablo Picasso liked to mix up things in his paintings, and that’s what we’ve done with our Picasso pizza.
Inspired by Pablo’s bright paintings, we combined a splash of different color vegetables to make a very pretty vegetarian pizza.
One thing that makes the Picasso unique amongst our signature pizzas is the soft, yummy pieces of avocado! It also features spinach, mushrooms, mini sweet peppers, and cherry tomatoes, with mozzarella cheese and our homemade red pizza sauce. Like all of our pizzas, we make the crust from scratch and cook it in our wood-fired pizza oven.
Come in today to try your own Picasso pizza!
Did you know that Rembrandt’s sells hard ciders as well as wine? As the weather gets warmer, a cold hard cider is the perfect refreshing beverage. Here are some reasons you should consider a hard cider next time you visit us:
1. Hard ciders aren’t just limited to apples.
Although a lot of hard ciders are made from apples, others are brewed completely from other fruits. Some examples are pineapple cider and pear cider (also known as perry). A lot of ciders mix both apples and other fruits to make unique flavors.
At Rembrandt’s, we currently have 19 different ciders to choose from. You can see our regular cider menu under the “Menu” tab on this website. Some of our favorites are:
- Blake’s Hard Cider Co. Beard Bender (the closest flavor to a craft beer, made of apples)
- Rekorderlig Pear Premium Cider (crisp, refreshing perry made with Swedish spring water)
- Ciderboys Grand Mimosa (a blend of apple and orange flavors)
- Maeloc Blackberry Cider (apple cider flavored with blackberries—light and summery)
- Ace Pineapple Craft Cider (the first pineapple cider in the world—it tastes like, well, pineapples!).
In addition to our menu ciders, we also have 4 seasonal fruit ciders for spring and summer:
Continuing our specialty pizza series, today we present the Van Gogh.
The Van Gogh is a vegetarian pizza piled high with onions, cherry tomatoes, spinach, mini sweet peppers, and feta cheese. The thing that makes the Van Gogh unique is the sauce: it’s got fresh pesto!
Imagine a ton of fresh veggies, feta, our homemade pesto sauce, and our signature made-from-scratch crust, all wood-fired to perfection.
The bright colors in Vincent van Gogh’s paintings are an inspiration for the vibrant colors of this pizza, thus the name.
If you’re a fan of pesto sauce and veggies, you have to try the Van Gogh!
All of our pizzas are made completely from scratch, then wood-fired in our special oven.
This is the first installment in a series of posts about each of our specialty pizzas. Where else would we start if not with the pizza that bears our namesake: the Rembrandt.
The Rembrandt Pizza is a smoky, meaty masterpiece.
In its purest form, the Rembrandt is piled high with pepperoni, sausage, bacon, ham, and smoked Gouda cheese. These are layered on top of our homemade traditional pizza sauce on our signature made-from-scratch crust.
The combination of the four types of meat is a perfect balance to the smoky flavor of the Gouda cheese and wood-fired crust. It’s not hard to see why this pizza is a customer favorite!
Many people choose to add other toppings to the Rembrandt. Popular choices include mushrooms (seen in the picture above), onions, Parmesan cheese, or Kalamata olives.
Come in this weekend to try our signature pizza, the Rembrandt. You’ll be glad you did!
Did you know that there are many types of sparkling wine besides Champagne? Lots of you that have visited us at Rembrandt’s love Serena, a sparkling Moscato/Brachetto sweet red wine. Other sparkling wines include Riesling, Prosecco, and Brut (to name a few). Read on to learn more about these fizzy drinks…
Sparkling wine is well known for its tiny bubbles that race to the surface. Sparkling wine is one of the most exotic yet refreshing types of wine, providing memories and happiness once the cork is released into the air. For many years, this exotic wine has proven to be among the most popular types of wine for celebrations and special achievements.
By looking at sparkling wine, you’ll find it to be a complete mystery. When tasting the wine, friends and lovers choose to discuss the refreshing, nutty aroma. Even though this type of wine is very popular, it can be hard to describe. Although the taste and aroma can be right there, lingering in the air – it’s still something that is nearly impossible to find the words for.
When you first open a bottle of sparkling wine, the carbon dioxide aroma that instantly fills the air is an experience that you have to smell to believe. A true feast for all of your senses, sparkling wine can instantly put you at ease. Drinking this wine is a feast for your taste buds, bringing several different flavors to rest on your tongue at the same time. Similar to the shine and splendor of the finest diamonds, sparkling wine emits a truly elegant aura and romance that makes it easy to distinguish from other types of wine.
Sparkling wine was first discovered in France by Dom Perignon, who was a monk in the Champagne region. He actually stumbled upon this fine wine while performing his duties as a cellar master in the Benedictine Abbey. Dom would hide his discovery for many years, as the public didn’t really respond in the way that he had been hoping.
Although Dom Perignon’s sparkling wine wasn’t popular at first, it would grow and become more popular over the years. Once people in France and people around the world caught wind of this amazing sparkling wine, they simply had to experience it for themselves. At this point, it didn’t take long for Dom Perignon to become a legend and one of the most important winemakers throughout the rich and cherished history of France.
The formula and techniques that Dom used to produce his sparkling wine eventually become known as the traditional way of making Champagne. The process is still used throughout the world today, producing some of the best sparkling wines. Even though sparkling wine is made in various locations, many agree that the best place is the Champagne region of France, which is where sparkling wine first began and was first introduced to the world. True Champagne can only come from this region – otherwise, it is called a sparkling wine.
These days, sparkling wine is an essential part of life, for celebrations and events. With most celebrations, sparkling wine is simply a must-have. No matter where the future of wine goes, sparkling wine will never die. It will always be the wine that sparks celebrations, and the wine that makes events come to life.
Here at Rembrandt’s, we have a large selection of both sweet and dry sparkling wines. Come in soon – we’ll be sure to help you find the perfect bubbly for you!
About USDA Prime Grade Steak
Here at Rembrandt’s, we serve 14 ounce USDA Prime grade steaks (Thursday through Saturday). They are cut by hand in-house, then fire-grilled to perfection. USDA Prime steak is the top 2% of quality beef available in the U.S. It is almost NEVER found in supermarkets. It is usually only reserved for upscale hotels and restaurants. Prime grade meat comes from well-fed, young cattle and has a lot of marbling (the fat dispersed throughout that gives the meat flavor).
We offer USDA Prime ribeye. The ribeye steak is from the rib section, just in front of the strip loin section. This is a muscle that doesn’t do much work (compared to others), so it is one of the most tender cuts of steak. It is high-quality with excellent marbling.
Why Rembrandt’s is a Better Choice for Your Money
USDA Prime Prices at restaurants in Louisville:
- Jeff Ruby’s 14 oz. New York Strip (no sides): $49
- Eddie Merlot’s 16 oz. Ribeye (no sides) $52.95 / 12 oz. New York Strip (no sides) $44.95
- Le Moo 14 oz. Ribeye (one side): $39 / 14 oz. New York Strip (one side): $52
Most franchise steakhouses (such as Logan’s and Texas Roadhouse) serve Choice grade steak, the next level down from Prime. (Even the other steakhouses here in Madison serve it… no names mentioned!) A Choice steak is still good, but in general, it will be less tender and juicy than a Prime one. It’s a little bit courser and has less marbling (remember, that’s the flavor!).
Rembrandt’s Prime grade 14 oz. steaks (including a baked potato/sweet potato, side salad, and dessert): only $29.95!
Rembrandt’s is the only restaurant in Madison to offer USDA Prime steaks, at an amazing price! Call 812-273-5050 to make your reservation now!
Green mimosas, Irish pizza, and corned beef potato soup will be on the menu all weekend!
