Venison on the menu

SouthShore Nov 12, 2009 06:11 AM

Hey folks,

Has anybody seen venison on the menu anywhere? Now that's we're deep into fall, I'm craving my old favorite. I searched the board and found some posts that suggested Blue Duck Tavern, Corduroy or Cashion's might feature it. I also thought 1789 would be a sure bet. Sadly, none of the above have it. Are we still too early in the season for this area?

    I had it recently at Montmartre on the Hill - you could call and check to see if it's on menu or on special. I had it braised osso-buco style in a wine sauce - it was to die for.

      The meat market next to Brabo in old town is doing a game dinner this month. Not sure if there is space left, but venison is on the menu.

        Inox is having a special game menu some night coming up featuring venison, wild boar and stuff for $150. There is probably more info on their website, I think I saw it on UrbanDaddy.

          Wow. That sounds incredible, but sadly out of my price range. Looks like venison is on the regular menu for $39. Unfortunately, I don't drive so I don't have a way of getting to Inox (or Serbian Crown).

          But thanks, kneelconqueso, for the heads up on American Indian museum. I've been hearing great things about their cafeteria and have been meaning to check it out.

          Thanks for the tips, all!

          serbian crown in great falls is a good bet.

          also, probably not what you're looking for but i believe the smithsonian american indian museum has a venison dish.

            As 'comestibles' pointed out on another thread, venison appears on a special menu all winter at Old Europe, but I haven't been there in years.

              Equinox also might be a place that would serve it.

                Woops, forgot to post about Equinox --- they haven't had it yet and it's not on this week's menu. Does anybody know if they've historically had it?

                  I would call or write them. It seems like something they would have. You can also ask them the seasonal question since they are well-versed in those issues.
