Looking for best lamb dishes in midtown west
We are flexible as to type of preparation...lamb burger, rack of lamb...would love to hear any of your favorite suggestions!
I like brainstorming questions like this. :)
* If you like your lamb haute, Insieme has a delicate "Elysian FIelds Lamb" dish with cauliflower, romanesco, pine nuts and currants (unclear why it's so named... perhaps so you know you're not getting live lamb?)
* Best lamb burger is probably at Anthos.
* Milos had an excellent lamb chop last spring (the first and only time I had it)
* For something more low key, Akdeniz's version of hunkar begendi (lamb over smoky eggplant puree) isn't too shoddy.
Insieme's lamb dish is the most interesting (to me); the Anthos burger is the most satisfying on a cold Nov. day if you're hungry.
I'd go to Taboon - lamb out of the Taboon along with some of that bread/tzatiki and grilled octopus...great.
Best lamb dish Ive had is at Bar Americain - the Lamb Porterhouse - its better than steak. Amazing!
