Dish of the Month

Lamb at Fond

Styer isolated a rope of lamb leg muscle and treated it almost like a tenderloin, cooking it medium-rare and dressing it faintly with allspice. The side of braised red cabbage was nearly port-like in its intensity, contrasting perfectly with tiny roasted Brussels sprouts. – Trey Popp, City Paper
