Had a lovely dinner at Saul on Smith street (b/t Bergen and Dean).
Had the special lamb entree - essentaily lamb 4 ways: grilled chop, roasted leg, sauteed liver, stewed and encased in a corn meal crust. I might have prefered lamb one way but it was a fun romp. Everyone else's looked fantastic too - great squab, good looking scallops (tho a small portion compared to other dishes).
As an app, had the winter veg. salad. Like a cooked chopped salad with the integrity of the brussels sprouts and other veggies intact. but the grated cheese garnish was non sequitor. Wrong cheese? too finely grated? just not quite right.
Did not have the rabbit or duck confit which is supposed to be signature-awesome as I was a table of Frenchies who basically eat confit for breakfast lunch and dinner 365 days a year.
Desert was no afterthought. A "flourless"-style chocolate cake served with an ice cream that was best described as trippy; dark carmel and star anise flavors. Also nice dollops of squash puree/pudding. Service was flawless too.
This was serious food on a street where "sublime" is infrequently attempted or reached.
