Please help steer me in the right direction at Peasant on Elizabeth St. What are your favorite dishes at Peasant? What shouldn't be missed?
Thanks in advance.
The pizzas make a nice appetizer to share, cooked nicely in the wood-fired oven, thin crust. Very tasty.
I did have a problem once ordering pizza though. Our server said there was a back up of orders and it would take too long to make so we couldn't order it. Frankly, I was appalled. Especially since I had been raving about the pizza and brought friends to try it.
I like their cuttlefish baked in spicy tomato sauce. In the summer sometimes they have the pasta dish with rabbit and fava beans, it's pretty amazing and not to be missed.
I have never been impressed with their desserts, but they have nice dessert wines by the glass if you want something sweet.
Last time I was there we liked the speck-wrapped mozzarella balls, sausage and lentils (my favorite), spicy octopus, gnocchi with mushrooms (really good), suckling pig, a side of polenta, the bread pudding.
