LAMB -- L.A. Dish of the Month, June 2014

The dish of the month for Los Angeles for June 2014 is LAMB.

Here's a link to the voting thread for last month (I think) where lamb almost tied:

The goal is to collectively try as many different varieties, kinds and types of lamb as possible. Anything lamb-related is fair game. And, it goes without saying, that telling us of fabulous places to find lamb (and all of its various iterations) that you've tried in the past is great, and recounting vivid memories is also fun, but what we want are real-live, current progress reports of what and where you are finding and eating lamb.

So let's start exploring and eating—report back with reviews and photos.

Because lamb is great prepared at home and on the grill, please also post any great sources or specials that you find.

  1. AYCE lamb chops at fogo.

    Toothpick cumin lamb chengu

    Rack of lamb at Craig's

    Three good spots but fogo wins for me

    1. Recent dinner at Tavern in Brentwood included:
      Braised lamb shank with fingerlings, fava beans & savory créme fraîche . Wonderful dish. Best lamb shank I have ever eaten.

      1. I could've sworn I had lamb chops at P'tit Soleil, but I'm not seeing it in their on-line menu.

        At any rate, the prep was very standard (and thus not a standout), but eating it in a nice gastopub environment + the marvelous poutine just made for a very satisfying afternoon (a few wks ago).

        1. The lamb with cumin at Lucky Noodle King is pretty awesome.

                I like the lamb dip at Phillipe's, double-dipped with jack cheese, yum!

                1. re: Michelle

                  how about the lamb w blue cheese ?????

                  1. re: kevin

                    +1 on double dipped lamb with blue.

                  2. re: Michelle

                    I like the lamb dip at Phillipe's double-dipped as well, but hold all cheeses. Plenty of flavor in that lamb, the au jus and the bun, plus some hot mustard of course!

                    1. re: carter

                      when not add some cheese to gild that lilly.

                      that bleu they gots there is pretty pungent.

                      but if one is not a fiendish cheese lover the bleu just won't do.

                  3. re: wienermobile

                    it doesn't look like there's a lot of lamb meat in that there sandwich.
