A friend wants to have his birthday at a brazilian steakhouse in manhattan. I know of several in the ironbound district in Newark, but sadly it is not manhattan. I have been to the place in Times Square and yuck. Help!
A roasted boneless leg of lamb makes an impressive centerpiece for your table, but this recipe is easy enough to pull off any time. A classic gremolata perfumes the lamb; the mixture of garlic, lemon, and parsley holds its own against the strong flavor of the meat.
