This was my fourth and final stop on the Michael White restaurant tour (not including Marea). This was a pretty big meal, so I’ll just get down to it and list everything we tried.
Chicken & Eggplant Meatballs
I admit I didn’t have high hopes for this, but it ended up being my favorite item of the night. So tasty. Really nice.
Beautiful and light.
The goat cheese on this was a nice touch.
We tried four different pasta dishes:
This was a squid ink dough stuffed with lobster meat inside, and garnished with cuttlefish. Using seafood is a great way to make a ravioli style dish a bit lighter. Really nice.
Braised lamb neck, sheep’s milk ricotta and broccoli rabe. A really hearty and flavorful pasta.
This was served with their classic Bolognese ragu, packed with delicious morsels of meat.
This was my favorite pasta of the night. Perfertly cooked al dente pasta with a delicious pork shoulder ragu and melted pecorino.
These had a grassy flavored green crust on the outside that gave the lamb a delicate earthy flavor.
The crispy prosciutto on top of the dressed greens here was killer, and it was the perfect way to introduce a little salt into the dish.
This was cooked to a perfect medium rare. I love the charred lemon preparation here, and that filet side was super tender. 7/10.
We also tried two sides:
Mushrooms & Spinach
I loved that medley of wild mushrooms.
And of course, we also tried the White Label Burger from this location. Here, it is topped with fontina cheese, bacon, pepperoncini peppers and a tomato marmalade.
