Inspired by A.kitchen

Tim McGinnis seeks refuge from negativity and gimmickry in Bryan Sikora’s impressive a.kitchen.

The Meat category introduced me to my soul mate of a dish, the sugars coaxed from a perfectly cooked loin of lamb caramelized on a searing hot la plancha. First, the lamb’s natural sugars mingled casually with bitter Greek-style yogurt, then it flirted hardcore with salty black olives, and finally decided to take the bitter Treviso home and bang the hell out of it. The lamb went great with a stunning outside-the-box cocktail of a bitter artichoke liquor cynar and orange mixed expertly by bartendrix Catherine Manning.

    The “take the bitter Treviso home and bang the hell out of it” line does not make me interested in reading the actual review.
