Tar and Roses

We enjoyed Tar and Roses so much we couldn’t resist a repeat visit. It was just as good as the last time and I urge everyone to just go!

White wine from their list

Popped corn/crisp bacon, brown sugar, chili – to say my husband loves this is a massive understatement – this was his first batch – he ordered a second and probably would have ordered thirds if I had let him!

“Oysters Rockefeller” – ramps, bread crumbs, chili flakes, lemon zest, fennel pollen – a wonderful take on a classic dish

Soft Shell Crab, fava bean and corn salad, lemon vinaigrette – this was an A+ dish – the soft shells were executed to perfection and the fava bean and corn salad with avocado and roasted tomato strips was off the charts delicious. (I loved it so much I asked for a serving to go.)

Chicken oysters on a stick, tamarind – Just as good as the last time!

BYO Red Wine

Balsamic glazed ribs, chili, fried basil –  another addictive dish

Half the ribs demolished

Sweetbread Tostada, yellow foot mushroom, peppadew, ceci cake – an interesting take on sweetbreads

Braised lamb belly, minted apple chutney – again executed perfectly with a lovely flavor profile

Bone marrow, pickled onion marmalade, sea salt, sourdough bread – a great rendition of bone marrow

Chef Andrew Kirschner definitely has a winner with Tar and Roses and the neighborhood seems to agree as it was packed by 5:45.
