Lamb gnocchi at Garden at the Cellar

We had dinner at Garden at the Cellar the other night and were very happy with our meal. We enjoyed the cod fritters and grilled octopus, but the star was the lamb gnocchi. Succulent little bits of lamb, small soft gnocchi, snipped fresh herbs, and everything sitting in a little pool of lamb-infused broth. I don't even like gnocchi usually because I find it too heavy and starchy, but this was one of the most delicious things I have eaten in a long time.

  1. If the gnocchi is starchy and heavy then it's not good gnocchi. Likely bought vaccu packed from sysco or such.

    Freshly made gnocchi should be like fluffy luscious little pillows of goodness.

    1. Thanks for mentioning this. I had this dish about a month ago and for me it was a revelation. It was incredibly good! And yes, the gnocchi were light and airy and fantastic. The entire dish was a tremendously harmonious coming-together of goodness.
