Mica Has a Little Lamb
Yianni Arhontoulis, now the proud owner of Mica in Chestnut Hill as of August 2016 (when he bought it from its original owner, Chip Roman), is heading into his sixth month as a restaurant owner. When he reopened the restaurant, he Yianni-fied it with a new coat of paint, a new menu, and a six-course $69 tasting — all of it extremely seasonal and hyper local. But now that he’s a bit more comfortable in his new digs, he’s ready for some extracurricular events.
Like this week’s lamb dinner.
Arhontoulis is currently in possession of a pasture-raised Cheviot lamb from Erdenheim, a local farm which uses super-sustainable and ethical farming practices. And he’d like to showcase the animal, nose-to-tail, for dinner this Wednesday and Thursday. Here’s the menu, four courses for $55:
Lamb Leg Tartar with early spring relish, miner’s lettuce and garlic jam
Merguez Sausage with buttered white beans, sauer turnip and parsley
Grilled Lamb Saddle with castelvetrano olives, black garlic and chickweed
Caramelized Goats Milk Panna Cotta with rhubarb and pistachio
