The new Winter 2010-11 menu at Tuck Shop doesn't actually say "poutine," but foodies already know that fries, Gruyere cheese, and mushroom gravy amount to a Canadian cult dish that's been popping up on local menus lately.

That's just one of the new items that caught my eye on the Coronado District eatery's latest round of culinary offerings, available starting tomorrow.

There's also chicory salad with hazelnuts, winter squash, endive, and desert honey-chestnut ranch; ropa vieja chili with corn johnnycake, cotija cream, and sweet potato haystack; and Catfish Oscar with lump crab, asparagus, and mushroom barley rice.

Longtime faves like the spiced skirt steak with parmesan-lentil mashed Yukons are still in the rundown as well. Read on for the full menu:
