Horse meat in NY - Balthazar?

Lambretta76 | | Nov 17, 2003 09:04 AM

Does anyone know of any restaurants in New York City that serve horse meat? I was in Montreal this past weekend and was disappointed that a restaurant I had gone to specifically for a horse dish (The Continental on St. Denis, if anyone is interested) was actually out of it for the evening.

So, my search to try this in the US has begun. I've read up on the legal issues surrounding this and it seems to be OK here in the States. (At least from a legal standpoint, though it looks like it may be rough times for the producers in Texas, but I digress.) And Balthazar serves a burger on its menu listed as "À cheval" - could this be it or is it a silly name for something entirely different? If it is, has anyone tried it? And doesn anyone know of anywhere to get this not in a ground form?

Many thanks for your honest answers. (If this is going to become a flame war, please have the courtesy to bring it up on the general topics board.)
