I know a few of you have written about the "Butcher and the Boar", but tonight I ordered right and thought I should share.
I started with Fulton Sweet Child of the Vine brewed two blocks from the place - the most fresh and unctuous IPA I have had just about anywhere outside of the UK! I chose the duck sausages with this beautiful turnip cake (not too sweet) - fried egg and black sesame with a delicate slaw that has a kick, but pairs so well with a red wine reduction. Then on the side I ordered the cedar planked mushrooms - beautifully seasoned, not oversmoked, and my taste buds went in a totally different, but entirely welcomed, direction. For desert, a single, simple shot of the most delicious burbon this east coaster has ever wrapped his tounge around. Prichards - a pricey but total and completely well worth it finish to an ideal meal.
Not nearly the heaviness that you might expect from a place that is named to conjure images of larndenous over indulgence. Far from it! Light airy, with the most intense combinations of flavors this side of Louisiana. Wow.
