TEMPE, Ariz., Dec. 8 (UPI) -- An Arizona restaurant is getting into the holiday spirit by temporarily offering a special all-reindeer menu.

The Caffe Boa in Tempe, which made headlines last Easter with an all-rabbit menu, said it will be serving North American caribou from Colorado and Idaho in a variety of dishes, including caribou tartare gilded with pickled quail egg and caribou tongue bruschetta with pickled watermelon radish and horseradish cream, The Arizona Republic reported Wednesday.

The pasta dishes include pappardelle with caribou Bolognese and caribou-filled tortellini in a parmesan broth and the menu also offers a bollito misto stew with vegetables and caribou meat.

The special menu was designed by Chef Payton Curry.
