On the way back from the DC Rally for Sanity/Fear, Albertina was telling me about this newish French-Canadian (Québec) diner that had rabbit hearts and foie gras tamales on the menu. Right up my alley. We met up for lunch with her friend, Justin. There were no rabbit hearts this time, but we got everything else just as adventurous –Pickled Pork Tongue, Sweetbreads Sandwich, Escargots & Bone Marrow, Pollock Cobbler and a doughnut for appetizer.
When I become super rich, I’m going to throw a party with catering trays full of those Roasted Escargots & Bone Marrows. So decadent. The Sweetbreads Sandwich was a crowd favorite too. The menu says the sweetbreads are “General Tso Style.” That sounds tragic, but it was beautifully crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, tasty all over.
Decent prices for these type of things. I was thinking how cheap the Pickled Pork Tongue was at $6. I don’t know. Is that cheap? Anyway, we got a great sampler of something different for about $19 plus tip each.
Only opened for lunch 10am-4pm Tuesday through Sunday. Dinner service coming soon. It only took me 30 minutes on the train to get there from the Flatiron district. Not too bad if you have the time.
