A good place for Calf's liver
I am looking for a good restaurant for calf's liver. I would prefer a French place but that's not essential. Thanks.
My favorite place for calves' liver -- Pierre au Tunnel -- closed. I'm not sure that I've eaten liver out since they closed.
I had dinner last week, though, at Allouette on the UWS and their calves' liver was terrific, prepared just as I like it.
I enjoyed Allouette, and it serves a purpose as a neighborhood place. As I thought back over the meal, though, every dish had some little problem, with the exception of the liver.
I've had a pretty good (non-overcooked) version topped with sauteed onions, apples, and a rasher of bacon at Vince & Eddie's near Lincoln Center.
Landmarc also has a sauteed calf's liver on the menu, though I haven't tried it. I could've sworn I've seen it on the menu at Ouest, as well, but couldn't find it on any of the online menus.
Finally: perhaps not your style, but Akdeniz has a decent Turkish rendition on the appetizers menu served with sumac, onion, parsley, and a nice squirt of lemon. It's fried and cut up into little pieces (and it can be a little hard).
I think the best is the Venetian style at Gonzo. Absolutely delicious. Chez Napoleon is another possibility. I have never ordered it there, but they do all of the other organ meats really well, so I would expect it to be good.
