Ruby Watchco or Woodlot?
I have made two reservations for this evening - Ruby Watchco and Woodlot. I have read the reviews, surveyed the menus and still can't decide. Here is tonight's menu at Ruby:
ROASTED MUSHROOM SALAD
Arugula, Spiced Pumpkin Seeds, Cherry Tomatoes, Parmesan Aioli,
Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette
GRILLED VEAL CHOPS WITH SPICY MARINARA
Barley, Grilled Radicchio & Red Onions
Broccoli Rabe with Olive Butter
Heirloom Carrots with Pine Nut, Raisin & Caper Relish
RASSEMBLEU BY FROMAGERIE HAMEL
Spiced Pear Butter
TONKA BEAN SCENTED RICE PUDDING
Orange & Cherry Chutney
I have never eaten veal - seems like some love it and others hate it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Most people who "hate" veal hate the thought of eating calves, not the taste/texture of veal. When it's cooked properly, it's a tender meat with a relatively delicate taste compared to beef.
I went to Woodlot last weekend ... Crostini with buffalo mozzarella, basil, and roasted butternut squash ... absolutely sublime. Sweat pea agnolotti with a lamb ragu and mint ... stunning. Add a bottle of Keint-He Pinot Meunier and you are done.
I'll also chastise you for the double booking. Truly bad form.
