Ansill-still good? What to get?

MDuges Mar 6, 2008 12:06 PM

Going to Ansill for the first time next week with my husband and another couple. Is it still as good as they say? Any ordering advice? I know the menu changes so I wanted to see if anyone had thoughts on the current or recent menu.

Thanks in advance!

    It's still excellent. Their sample menu on the website probably isn't 100% accurate, but they always seem to have the osso bucco on there, last time I had it it was made with lamb and was fantastic. Other favorites of ours include the fingerling potatoes, shirred eggs (haven't seen them on the menu in a little while though), and spaetzle. They also really know how to cook octopus there. You basically can't go wrong though, it's a great place. I had head cheese there recently for the first time and was pleasantly surprised.

          Here's my ordering advice: get anything! We were there on Saturday and had a veritable feast of intense, sparkling flavors. The chef's touch is deft, and you really can't order badly.
