Anne and the folks at the Star Provisions empire have launched a new restaurant and it's a winner - Abattoir (yes, French for "butcher"). As you'd expect from them, the focus is fresh, local, Southern-slanted, and this time, "head to tail" (though the menu is diverse, including plenty of seafood and veggies in addition to the lamb livers and tongues and tripe and more). The room is gorgeously rustic, in an actual old meat packing area on the Westside. The wine list is eclectic and very well priced - we had a lovely Marsannay for around $35 and another lovely Oregon pinot noir for about $27. They had a Silver Oak cab for just $89 if you're into that kind of thing. The food managed to be simple (mostly) and flavorful and balanced. Standouts were some "dragons tongue beans" to start, and a squab with carolina gold rice and greens. And for dessert, the rice pudding with a creme brulee-style caramelization on top was outstanding. A lovely place for a meal that can be an adventure or a recollection of favorite things. A few blackberry pics at:
