- one extrordinary foie terrine, with bing cherry jam (of a most unique texture), marinated cherries and ramps, and hot buttered toast.
- grilled octopus with chorizo and piquillo peppers - perfect as usual: tons of flavor and not at all rubbery.
- dandelion salad with cured anchovies and a poached egg: one of the city's best salads, definitely a rival of our other favorite - Lupa's escarole, pecorino & walnut.
- braised and roasted bunny with escarole, fava beans and Dijon gnocci. Pretty good really and the gnocci simply killing, with achingly adorable bunny chops. Truth be told however, we're still partial to CQ's roast bunny.
One lonesome 2001 Chenin Blanc by the glass sufficed as we were due back at work, so though the bunny could have used a Pinot Noir, we refrained. We'll return soon though and make up for such dismaying teatotaling.
