Going this weekend. Two of us, so I expect we will order around 10 plates. what would you choose off the menu as "must haves"?

    i agree 100% about the pork bellies. They are to swoon over. The fresh porcinis with Tallegio was also great

      The Pork Belly was the clear favorite at a meal where everything we ordered was exceptional. we also enjoyed the osso bucco sandwich, hanger steak, sweetbreads, bone marrow crostini, fingerling potatoes and duck prosciutto.

          yes -- get the osso bucco. it IS great. i had a nutella panini for dessert which was fantastic.

          Be careful with how much you order -- eat slowly. I think we ended up eating too much....and my tummy hurt the rest of the night because of it. It's hard with those small plates to really know how much you are eating.

            I agree on the shirred eggs, duck egg and venison tartare. The pork belly, hangar steak and scallop ceviche are also excellent. If the celery soup happens to be on the menu again, I recommend that, too.

              Shirred Eggs
              Fingerling Potatoes

              I've also heard that the open-faced Osso Bucco is great, but I've never had it myself. Let us know how it goes..

                Although the Bride & I are seemingly in the minority, we did not have a great experience there, particularly due to the vegetarian dishes which seemed to be 90% butter and sickeningly rich.


                The duck egg was good, as were the sweetbreads.
