With our friends Yael and Tanavi in town, Akemi and I joined Dr. Blackjack for a couple of meals.
First, lunch at Shook –
Stuffed smoked dates, mushroom kibbeh, wild mushroom couscous. Not pictured: the best hummus in town.
Then, dinner at Antler –
The charcuterie board (the boar belly was sublime). The Elk Tartare. The duck hearts yakitori.
My cocktail. The main ingredient = duck fat-washed whiskey!
The Game Burger (bison, venison, and wild boar)
Smoked chocolate mousse and maple cake.
Not surprisingly, I was NOT hungry for lunch today.
