Killer lamb dishes?

Baby sheep is my weakness. I'm specifically looking for Indian restaurants that do lamb vindaloo and/or achari gosht particularly well, but any cuisine will do. I find it overcooked and dry so often that I am starting to lose faith.

  1. While none are Indian, I've recently had fantastic lamb at DBGB, Keens and Little Owl.

    1. Although I feel Rosa Mexicano is a little to popular these days they have a lamb shank wrapped in banana leaves that is fantastic

      1. Cumin lamb at Szechuan Gourmet?

            Lamb Sandwich is the best.! OMG now i have to go get one.

                  The lamb salad or noodles are my personal preference. The lamb sandwich is just a ton of cumin -- it fails to do it for me.

                  As for the lamb vindaloo, I've failed to find a place that gets the balance of sour and savory right. Thankfully it's not too difficult to make from scratch, so I make vindaloo at home. Bhatti and Dhaba both make achari gosht, which might make them worth a visit.

                2. The lamb burger at The Breslin is one of my all-time favorite lamb dishes. Betcha you can't eat more than half of it!

                    It might be more accurate to say that you shouldn't eat more than half of it. I ate the whole damn tasty thing, and was stuffed for days.

                    Second the Xian Famous Foods cumin lamb noodles. I think it is not exaggerating to say that that is my absolute favorite food in NYC these days.
