In the past few weeks I've had three excellent oxtail dishes - oxtail stew at Back A Yard in Menlo Park. fried oxtail at Pizzaiolo and braised oxtail with pasta at Oliveto. Any other recs for restaurants that do a great oxtail?
Oxtails might be considered a “tough” cut of beef, but when they're stewed at a gentle simmer for hours, the meat melts right off of the bones. In other words, braised oxtails are a perfect hearty comfort food to warm you during the cooler months.
The best things in life are passed down through generations—just like the allspice and cinnamon-scented oxtail of Chef Jerome Grant’s ancestry, currently on offer at Sweet Home Café in The National Museum of African American History and Culture.
