Chef Akasha Richmond reviews Wood roasted half chicken at Tar & Roses

"This roast chicken at chef Andrew Kirschner’s new restaurant is slow steamed and then finished in the wood-burning oven. I could eat it all the time."
Chef Joe Miller reviews Charred octopus at Tar & Roses

"The charred octopus often changes but is always good. Last time I was there, they had octopus skewers that came with two sauces, charred tomato and chimichurri, both of which are terrific flavor combinations."

"This bone marrow—served with a ​r​ed ​o​nion marmalade and grilled sourdough—is richer than butter. Paired with a glass of Zinfandel​, it's perfection!​"
