Lamb on the menu-who's got it?
Looking for a place that has a lamb dish on the menu for a birthday person who really wants some. Another member of the smallish party is ovo-lacto vegetarian but no other requirements. Thinking along the vein of Sycamore, Puritan, A&H, Spoke, West Bridge, Rendezvous, Ribelle, Giulia, Coppa, Bergamot, Oleana. That kind of vibe. I could of course google all their menus but if anyone has had a recent lamb success and guesses the dish may be on the menu till say the end of March I would greatly appreciate your input. Cheers.
There are several lamb dishes on the Oleana menu but I have no idea how long they will be there. Search for Oleana...there was a recent trip report about a much-loved lamb dish there.
Wayside Inn on their Complete Sunday Dinner menu has roast leg of lamb. They used to have the rack of lamb chops but I do not see that anymore.
Rendezvous has those wonderful "Slow-roasted lamb spare ribs with Berber spices and harissa" on the appetizer menu. I know that they change their menu frequently, but isn't that a staple item?
The rack of lamb at Helmand in Cambridge is always wonderful and they have tons of interesting things for vegetarians
Rabbit and pasta seems to be the most common combination around Boston. I've tried and liked these:
Herb spaetzle with rabbit confit: Fairsted Kitchen. Love that place in general.
Strozzapretti with braised rabbit: Sportello
Braised rabbit tagliatelle: Farmstead Table
Can't vouch for these, but they are on current menus:
Rabbit in sour cream with garlic & herbs: Vernissage
Rabbit terrine app: Kirkland Tap & Trotter
Chicken-fried rabbit: Alden & Harlow
Rabbit boudin blanc app: Ten Tables, JP
Farro farfalle: No. 9 Park
Braised rabbit leg with noodles: Sandrine's
Tagliatelle with rabbit ragu: Dante
Smoked rabbit confit: EVOO
Braised rabbit tapa: Dali
Diced rabbit in Sichuan sauce: New Shanghai
My SO has to order the lamb tartare every time she goes to Bistro du Midi. I've only had it twice I think and it is very good.
Surprising the rack of lamb at Jimmy's Steer house is old school simple (think mint jam), tasty and a bargain. I haven't been in years but the Aegean in Watertown has great lamb riblets.
