Since so many good restaurants, a couple of my favorites among them, have passed away, where do I find the best sweetbreads? I like them at Hexagone but want more options.

      Piatti might be my favorite in San Diego for sweetbreads.

        Third for Piatti. I can't stand them, but both my wife and dad have had them here and loved them. Whisk'n'Ladle also has them on the menu from time to time.

        I will second Cowboy Stars Sweetbreads. 2nd or 3rd best I have had. 1st goes to Babbo and debatable 2nd or 3rd is Eiderdown in KY.

      3. Delicias has some good ones as well.

          I was at Delicias about a month ago- while I didn't have the sweetbreads I was thoroughly unimpressed with the food or the service. Also it was insanely expensive for what it was- and I know it's in the ranch, but for that price I'd rather go to MF.
