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.
