Crostini di Fegatini di Pollo - Where to find it?

MB fka MB Aug 2, 2006 07:12 PM

Okay, thanks to Bostonbob3 on the Boston board, I've just learned the name of this dish I've been dreaming about since a trip to Tuscany. It pretty much looks like cat food and is the tastiest thing ever (well, you know). Here's an image:

Have you seen it on a menu in Manhattan? If so, do tell, I'm due for a visit very soon!

    You might check out Via Quadronno - they have a website w/ a menu.

      This won't help you, but you just reminded me of an Indian dish I haven't had in years, Bengal Kaliji, spiced chicken livers served with poori.

        You should be able to find this on some Indian/Bengali menus around town. I know for sure that Dhaka on Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn has it on their menu as an appetizer. It's not the best I've had, but will fulfill a craving.

        Had this as a freebie once at Basso Est on the LES.

            Teodora-more commonly known as fegato a la veneziana or just fegato

              Fegato a la Veneziana is usually calves liver.

                you're right- chicken liver crostini is probably a better description then. Had that recently at 50 Carmine-fantastic

                  Living in Florence it was commonly called Crostini Toscana but here I've seen it as Crostini di Fegato. In any event, I had a great rustic version recently at Spotted Pig, and a smoother more italian version at Frank.
