Lincoln

First off, this place looks classy, bathroom included. High ceilings, glass windows, dimly lit, modern look. The menu changes daily, but some of the items seem to remain on the menu. I started with Roasted Bone Marrow with Crispy Sweetbreads and Pickled Green Strawberries, $15. Comes with a tiny spoon, but still difficult to scoop out the marrow from the 2 bone segments. The marrow is squishy but almost bland, needs salt or sauce or something to add a little extra taste to make it savory. The sweetbread (which is not actually bread, it’s an organ, like pancreas!!) is bite-size and tasty. The green strawberries are tiny and not juicy, but the salad is a nice balance to the bone marrow.

For the main course, I had Rabbit with Cicerchie, Chanterelle Mushrooms and Castelvetrano Olives, $28, paired with a Peruvian white wine. Rabbit tastes and looks like hen, The cicerchie adds a nice contrast in texture to the rabbit, and the chanterelle mushrooms are juicy. Savory, though butter is definitely a large contributor. The wine is light and goes well with the rabbit dish.

Finally, I finished off with Chocolate Cheesecake with Peanut Crumbs (though advertised on the menu as Peanut Meringue), $8. Rich, chocolatey, nutty, and delicious!

Staff was helpful and friendly, great use of colors in presentation, and was featured on Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre Foods America. Biggest downside – pricey.
