May finally be going here this Sunday night. Anyone been recently and have food recs? Thnx v much.
Had some squid ink pasta at the bar a few weeks back that was delicious. Seemingly simple preparation, but hit on all the right notes for me.
amazingly, the seafood is always good there. I think that sunday nights are a good time to enjoy craigie, busy but not crazy.
The crispy fried pig tails are always a fave. he also generally does a ragout of veggies/mushrooms/sometimes cocks comb/some sort of meat/soft coddled egg that's generally quite good. Also I like when he does tempura cod cheeks. I find the best way to eat there is either do a tasting, or eat a few small plates that appeal.
Second the pig tails. We always get the bone marrow too when we go. If going early enough I'd get the burger.
I also agree with the tasting menu though. Monkfish liver and salmon collar was on the menu last time we got the tasting and were both amazing.
Once with a large group we ordered the pig's head. I enjoyed it, especially the cheek, but some people are put off with their food looking right back at you.
Look forward to hearing what your meal is like. I haven't been since they moved and am hoping to treat my BFF to a birthday meal in June. Maybe the six course tasting.
