Marrow Dishes.

Now that Im obsessed with Fergus Henderson, I was wondering, besides Blue Ribbon, where else can I get some other notable marrow dishes?

    Landmarc and Crispo both have straight up roasted bone marrow like Blue Ribbon's (except they cut it lengthwise)
    Casa Mono has it on their current menu

    Craftsteak has deep fried bone marrow

    Allen and Delancey has their famous bone marrow dish

    Double Crown also serves bone marrow

    Other restaurants also incorporate bone marrow in their sauces, like EMP, Hearth, Telepan, Craft, etc.

      I'm also pretty sure that the porterhouse, and maybe some other cuts, at Craftsteak comes with marrow - though it's not deep fried (said my arteries with a sigh of relief...)

        I am sure that the deep fried bone marrow was offered as an appetizer at Craftsteak as I had ordered and eaten it myself. Looking into the current menu though, they seemed to have change it to a salt-roasted version.

          I wasn't doubting its existence, just noting that its available elsewhere on the menu, and that it's served gratis with those dishes. You are a better (wo)man than I for eating marrow that way. I feel guilty eating it straight-up on toast.

        I dont love Landmarc's for the very reason you cite, they cut it cross-wise rather than like Blue Ribbon's lengthwise. Its much tougher to reach it all and you have to really punch it out. For straight up roasted marrow, I'd choose blue ribbon.

        If you get a ribeye at BLT Prime, you also get a nice chunck of bone marrow with your steak. As if you don't need an angioplasty from the steak as it is, add some of the bone marrow to the gruyere popover...

          If you go to Blue Ribbon downtown, the bone marrow is served it like a tube (ferguson's style or crosswise). The uptown location serves it lenghtwise.

        Prune in the EV also has a roasted bone marrow appetizer.

          Oh yes. Good one. From all of the straight up bone marrow dishes (including Fergus Henderson's St. John in London), Prune was my favorite.

            It doesn't hurt that Gabrielle Hamilton basically is using Henderson's recipe, and admitted so to him before she opened. :)

              I was wondering if she used the same recipe as it tasted awfully familiar!

              I think I liked Hamilton's better because I found the source of the marrow bones to be a lot tastier than what I had at St. John.

          One of the most interesting bone marrow dishes I've had in a long time was a bone marrow chawan mushi at Craft. But it was an amuse, not on the regular menu.

            Hi Wilfrid,

            You remind me of the bone marrow flan at CUT steakhouse in LA. Decadent!

            Plus you can also request to add bone marrow to any cut of steak you want.

            Cafe d'Alsace (88th/2nd) serves it with toast and fleur de sel. When I lived on the UES that was my go-to for bone marrow!

              Yes, that's an awfully good dish.

              Roebling Tea Room has a "marrow breakfast" on their brunch menu which NEVER seems to be in stock--sadly appears to be a "look how weird and cool our menu is" item just to draw people in.

              also, pork bone Lanzhou noodles at the noodle shops around Eldridge/Chrystie in Chinatown.
