Anyone got any brains out there?

Sweetbreads used to be the darling of the kitchen a while back but I haven't seen brains on any menu (not even scrambled with eggs) in ages. Can anyone suggest a place that does a good job on calf's or lamb's brains, preferably a higher end place that does them for dinner?

  1. I should have added that I'm not looking for Asian or other ethnic restaurants. Spago, Providence, Josie type places instead.

      ...and that kills my suggestion (Simpang Asia). oh well. good luck!

    2. Wouldn't Musso Franks have that sort of thing...?!

        Musso's has sweetbreads (and lamb kidneys, too, which are great grilled/broiled) but no brains.

      2. sometimes Osteria Angelini has calve's brains as a special, and they are very good. many persian restaurants have them available if you order ahead.
