We’ll be looking back at the year in Foobooz. July, 2009, was obviously the month of the burger.


Dish of the Month

Hanger Steak at Bibou

It’s difficult to upstage perfect, double-seared hanger steak, but the depth that green peppercorn, red currant gelée and a touch of cream brought to the dish’s red wine bordelaise sauce (a Georges Perrier recipe Pierre tweaked) had me asking for more house-made bread to mop one of my companions’ plates.
