We recently celebrated a birthday dinner at the Linkery in North Park and it ended up that half of us had sausage plates and the other half had "regular" menu items. What we didn't expect was the nugget of beef bacon that came on the sausage platters. It had the smoky taste of bacon layered with the melty goodness of beef fat (have you ever had a well-marbled piece of top of a prime rib? it's like that, but better) and it pretty much just makes you swoon. They make it in-house using beef belly from Brandt beef.
What I'm wondering is if anyone has ever come across something like this before? I had never heard of such a thing and now I'm wondering how else to get a morsel like that? Short of spending the rest of my meals at the Linkery, of course. We did order a separate side order of the beef bacon and I guess we could have begged to take home a large order. I'm guessing this is just the kind of reason you go to places like The Linkery - unexpected dishes that are only found there. But it can't hurt to ask, right?
