The first time I tried beef carpaccio was at Vagabondo over a month ago and it was amazing. Thin slices of raw beef marinated in vodka and pepper and served over a bed of arugula. It was an appetizer portion. They served bread with our dinner and I made a meal out of the carpaccio and buttered italian bread. It was heavenly.
Not sure if most restaurants serve beef carpaccio as a special only but if you can recommed a few places that have really good beef carpaccio on their menus, that will be great.
