Went to ESK last night for a little nosh and a few cocktails. It was good as usual. The cocktails were still at a high level, perfect in fact. Food was good too. BUT!
the offal of the day was braised lamb neck with some fresh housemade pasta. Incredible! this was a dish that you would expect to see at the french laundry or from Ducasse!
it was so much better than anything I have had in a long while, and it came from an unexpected kitchen. I don't want to take anything away from ESK it is allways good. This dish just went to the extra level.
So my question to the board, is there a dish that you have had that went way, way beyond your expectations at a certain restaurant?
