Where I Go Out

At My Venues

"Not much more to say other than this is the perfect pork chop! Plus anything else chef Cosentino and the team put together that day, such as foie gras, beef heart, bone marrow or the vegetables. It is all delicious."

"If I see pork belly on a menu, I order it. This is an amazing pork chop with the belly attached. It's huge and can be shared by two. They load up on the cabbage and greens in this dish, which is dressed with a vinaigrette to balance out the heaviness of the pork. I also like to order the "Daily Requirements" (clever!), a.k.a. vegetables, such as wood oven asparagus and duck-fat cauliflower. Everything is perfectly cooked, seasoned and balanced—and super Paleo friendly."

"No decision to be made with this one: you can have the chop and the belly in one dish. It's not only impressive looking on the plate but incredible in the mouth. With such succulent, crispy pork, who needs more? Adding a perfect bottle of Barbaresco doesn't hurt, of course."
