April 10th Cash Mob – Degage Express – Free Cup of Soup with Purchase of any Sandwich
Degage Express- Soups, Sandwiches & Such is “where casual and upscale effortlessly mingle, creating an ideal setting for elegance with ease. Responding to popular demand, Red Wells at the Historic Commercial Building in Maumee will be changing to Dégagé Express, effective October 24, 2012.
Under the co leadership of Joseph Jacobsen, (Chef de Cuisine) and Matt Foreman, Operations Director, Dégagé Express: Soups, Sandwiches & Such will be the first true “Farm to Table” concept in the area. They have teamed up with local farmers and growers to ensure all our product is fresh and local. A farm to table concept isn’t easy, but the effort is so worth it. It helps to support the local economy, ensures that everything is at its peak of freshness and is better on the environment while eliminating food miles, which are the distance that food has to travel before getting to the marketplace. Almost every item they will be using is within 100 miles of their location, with most being within 30 miles. The menu will be small, so most items will not be sitting around in house to long.
While the menu will be chef-driven, it remains accessible to every palette and every wallet. There will also be a “playfulness” to the menu, so what you read is not always what you get.
A few of the dishes on the opening menu will include “Missy’s Fix” made with house-cured & braised corned beef, Swiss, house-made apple slaw made with locally picked apples, & plenty of in house made thousand island dressing with a twist. Another is “The Dip” which is house 13 hour slow braised beef, house- made gravy with your choice of locally made bread, then your choice of how you want it “DIPPED.” A single-dip, Double-Dip, or Wet.
The restaurant’s name, Degage Express- Soups, Sandwiches & Such, refers to five distinct characteristics. “Degage” refers to “feeling free, easy & relaxed”. “Express” coincides with eating fresh food in a relaxed atmosphere without feeling rushed. “Sandwiches” will be made fresh, to order, with locally made fresh bread from Wixey Bakery, house made meats, and fresh “Farm to Table” ingredients. “Soups” will all be house-made by Sous Chef Skyler Stanton. “Such” will include other options like gourmet coffees, house- made hot chocolates, teas, fresh to-order made salads & gourmet sides including “Twice baked sweet potato brûlée and locally made “Schmuckers pies.”
