Venison!!!! I am craving it but oh so hard to find. Where is it on the menu currently?

Its so infrequently on menus and I love it. Anyone been out in last couple of days and saw it on the menu?

  1. Where in Jersey are you....or how far are you willing to travel?

    1. Haven't seen on a menu lately BUT if you have a food store near you that carries D'Artangan products (Wegman's sometimes, Trader Joe's, King's in some locations, or of course a good gourment food store) I've gotten their Venison several times and cooked it myself at home, extremely good quality, and it great.

      1. It's still a little early, but I've had venison at The Shipwreck Grill in Brielle in the fall. Usually around late October-early November.

          Same situation at Brandl in Belmar. I know I had it there last fall (and it was good).

        2. Stage Left in New Brunswick occasionally has venison chili on their bar menu; they don't right now but it's worth checking fwiw.

          1. Seems to me venison is more of a fall/winter menu item. Amanda's in Hoboken usually has it on the menu come fall. I would call and ask if and when they might be featuring it.

                Chef at Sublime in Gladstone says a venison osso bucco will be on his new fall menu at the end of September, early October the latest.
