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

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

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.

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.
I second Keens, Xian, I also like the lamb burger at BLT Burger.
If you're ever in Queens the Muslim lamb chop at Fu Run, the Lamb vindaloo at Southern Spice, and any lamb dish at Mombar or Kebab Cafe.

The lamb tandir at Turkish Kitchen is terrific. I also strongly recommend the lamb burger at Belcourt.

The lamb chops at Devi were always very good...yogurt marinated, I think, served with a great pear chutney. Have seen here that they've changed ownership though so not sure if it's still on the menu or as good as it has been.
But as to lamb dishes... I'm sure some of these have been mentioned already:
The Mutton Chop @ Keens
Lamb Burgers @ The Breslin, 10 Downing, The Sunburnt Cow
All kinds of stuff @ Xi'an Famous Foods
Lamb Fries (when he has them - they tend to be on special) @ JoeDoe
Lamb Kidneys @ Beacon
7-Hour Lamb Shank @ Artisanal (Saturdays only)
Lamb Porterhouse, Smoked Lamb Cobb Salad @ Mesa Grill (yeah, I know... Bobby Flay... but it's really good, what can I say?)
Lamb Tenderloin Salad, Orecchiette with Lamb Ragu, Lamb alla Puttanesca @ Del Posto
Lamb Tenderloin w/ Mint Orzo @ The Orchard
Lamb’s Tongue Vinaigrette, Lamb Prosciutto, Mint "Love Letters" with Spicy Lamb, Lamb Chops "Scottadita", Lamb Brain "Francobolli" @ Babbo
Smoked Lamb Bolognese @ August
...not to mention Barbacoa Tacos at any number of places.
...and I'm sure I forgot a few, too.

Just saw lamb short ribs on the menu at Lupa - would love to know if anyone has tried those - and what exactly is the cut - across the bones (flanken) or English cut?
