Earlier this week, we announced The Vanguard would be saying goodbye to 11 of its menu items. Even though some popular fare—most notably the delicious likes of the Lodi, Tarkan, and Weylin’s Way—have either been 86ed for good or removed from the menu until further notice, Vanguard ownership enacted those difficult cuts in order to make room for a few new options on Bay View sausage emporium’s menu.

Starting today, The Vanguard will be offering three new styled sausages and a new side. Sadly, the new stylized sausages will be the final menu contributions from former head chef “Paddy” Joyce, who recently left the restaurant. However, before Joyce left, he hand-picked new Vanguard chef Danny Sutton to replace him. Sutton is making his presence known with his own menu addition, the Roasted Brussels Sprouts. As we wait to see what else Sutton has in store for us, feast your eyes on The Vanguard’s new and improved menu offerings below.
