Best Restaurants for Shanks and Shins

Paul Lukas | Feb 6, 2008 05:49 AM

Although it's warm today, the generally cool weather has had me in the mood for lamb shanks, osso bucco, pork shanks, beef shanks, etc. -- all the front-shin braising cuts.

It occurs to me that while some restaurants are "known" for having a really great steak or a really great pork chop, you almost never hear someone say, "You know, that place has AMAZING lamb shanks," even though that dish is on the menu at many, many restaurants. Does anyone know of any venues that are particularly good at any of these shank/shin dishes?
