David Ansill’s Tasting Menus Go Nose-to-Tail

The next set of David Ansill’s Chef Tasting Menus at Bar Ferdinand has been released. The three menus to come on October 4th, 11th, and 18th will center around a “Nose-To-Tail” theme: The Pig on the 4th, the Lamb on the 11th, and the Cow on the 18th. That’s right, for $40 a person each of the eight courses will focus on a different part of the animal. Sound interesting? Wait till you see the menus.

    Thanks Buckethead,

    We realize the menus have been written about but held them to now because we thought Tuesday, October 2nd was a better time to promote a Thursday, October 4th menu than September, 18th. But if you got the first OpenTable reservation back on the 18th, more power to you.

    all menus sound good, but that lamb one has got me ears perked up….
