Bone Marrow

Where can I find a good/great bone marrow dish in L.A.? As close to or better then Blue Ribbon or Landmarc in N.Y.

    1. My favorite is the simple roasted bone marrow at Pizzeria Mozza. I wish they served it on the Osteria side too!

          Ooh! Nice pic! I haven't been to Church & State yet, but I love how they cut the bone lengthwise. Do you only get half the bone? What accompanies it?

          1. re: heinous

            An order is the full bone. It was accompanied with crostini, and I think pickled veggies, cilantro, etc ?
            Can't remember exactly ..

              As we were having a large tasting menu - this was a half order. It is accompanied by a radish and parsley salad. We were instructed to spread the roasted bone marrow on the crouton and top it with some of the radish and parsley salad - ingenious as the radish cuts some of the fattiness of the marrow while adding a bite and texture that is wonderful.

                Exactly - you got it right!! It's to die for!

                  Got it today.

                  Certainly an outstanding dish, very creative and well presented.

                  Only caveat: get their regular baguette instead of the croutons. The croutons are too oily/buttery, don't go well with the fatty marrow. But a sandwich of bone marrow, the radish/parsley and the baguette is paradise on earth.

                  1. re: RicRios

                    That sounds like a great idea. I didn't find the crostini to be oily, ours were super crispy, and I think the idea is to have that textural difference and mouth-feel with the silky, unctuous marrow on top of the crispy, buttery crostini/crouton. But I do like the idea of the marrow soaking up the soft insides of the baguette with the radish salad providing the only crunchy contrast. I will definitely try it this way next time.

            2. A friend had the bone marrow at Pizzeria Mozza last week and raved about it.

                1. re: ipsedixit

                  Mozza was excellent both times I've had it there. Church and State looks pretty damn good too. I love marrow!
