O’Tooles New Healthier Options

Fresh Jumbo Oven Roasted Wings
We purchase our wings fresh from a local supplier, marinate them in house with our own special blend of herbs and spices. At O’Tooles we actually prefer the oven roasted wings over the classic deep fried buffalo style. The roasting seems to present a more intense flavor profile and presents a juicier wing. The current preference of the kitchen crew seems to be a unanimous two thumbs up for the oven roasted with the new “Dry Sonora” finishing rub.

Tuscan Hummus
A blend of chick peas with white tuscan cannelini beans and tahini give this hummus a rich creamy texture. Adding smoked hungarian paprika to the mix brings this hummus to new heights.
Veggie Lettuce Wraps
Asian style vegetables with roasted tofu in a toasted sesame marinade is elevated with a touch of chili and ginger. Crisp leaves of romaine lettuce provide the perfect vehicle to transport this fusion style dish.
Turkey Burger
The alternative to a beef burger without going all the way with the Vegan Veggie Burger. Some of our guests have switched over from the beef burger already. You be the judge.
Fish or Veggie Tacos
Either house marinated mahi mahi or roasted vegetable blend is the only choice you have to make. Each is stuffed with healthy slaw, avocado, pico di gallo, and cilantro and then kissed with lime. The black beans veracruz style finished with the uniquely mexican epazote herb and the side of whole grains & lentils make this a healthy palate satisfying south of the border entree.
Fresh Salads
O’Tooles variety of salads include a new “Greek Antipasto” and “The Traverse City Salad”. Any of which can be paired with a grilled salmon fillet, a grilled chicken breast, or a grilled shrimp skewer for a nominal charge. The new "Healthy Slaw" offers an excellent alternative to our classic creamy slaw. The shredded cabbage with carrot, spinach, zucchini and yellow squash presents a tasty blend for our vinaigrette with red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.
Lunch Time Sandwiches
A really sweet selection of sandwiches is available at O’Tooles Bistro during lunch. The healthy “Cali Wrap” features bean sprouts, guacamole, healthy slaw, black beans, salsa, lettuce, tomato and cucumber. It’s great on a spinach wrap.
