best lamb shank/osso bucco?
I'm having a serious jones for both of these meaty delights and was wondering which restaurants in town do the best versions. I like close to Upperline and have noticed they have lamb shanks - are they worth a visit? I also know that osso bucco is not uncommon in New Orleans and would like to see who does the best job. Ideas?
Not exclusively, Frank. I make a lamb shank osso buco style that would knock your socks off. I've also used beef shanks. Frankly, I prefer both of those to veal.
That said, I haven't had one is a restaurant that is better than mine.
One that was equal is at the now shuttered Daniel's.
The good news is Daniel Tobar just opened 8 months ago a new restaurant,
DANIEL'S ON THE BAYOU. I just found it & have been 3 times. Very good.
I've begged him to put lamb shanks/osso buco on the menu or at least have it as a special.
Andrea's has an excellent osso bucco; it's served with the marrow in the bone - rich and buttery, use as a garnish.
Dammit, I got no car. Nothing good sort of accessible by streetcar...?
Upperline lamb shank....worth a shot, y/n?
