Brian Freedman is the latest to heap praise on Josh Lawler’s The Farm and Fisherman. The beet steak is singled out again as the defining example of Lawler’s skill but it isn’t the only vegetable on the menu that has beefy ambition.
Tempura-fried soft shell crab anchors one end of an unexpected and whimsical riff on surf and turf: Its counterpart, a deep wheatgrass-toned creamed escarole is like a shot of chlorophyll, as perfectly evocative of the land as the crab was of the sea. No need for any four-legged creature here.
