Holy crap...some of that sounds magnificent..but I think I draw the line at internal organs and tongues.

You didn't mention any wine...or did you stick with ice water?


Hi Sparky,
Wine was BYOB and shared at the table. There were quite a few bottles of red to taste. You could purchase wine or cocktails from Lark as well.
Lamb tongue was very good, pork tongue was a bit much. Kidneys...a little went a long way. Sweetbreads, in small quantities are pretty tasty.


boy this web site is a gang buster...6-8 regular people on here....


Lark. Mara and I went for our first date. A better place I could not have chosen. We've been back, and will be back.

What a disgusting display of rich yuppies eating the flesh of their fellow sentient beings. I'm reminded of primitives pulling steaming organs out of living animals and stuffing them in their fat mouths. Surely the elites of this society can be more conscious! For shame.


Yeah, Michael, how much did they charge you to eat all the stuff we used to feed to the dogs when we slaughtered?


Oh no poor Lynn C.
The more variety of meat, the better. That is why animals were invented and why we get to be at the top of the food chain. What a great evening you must have had. Mmmmmm.


Quality over quantity, mommao..until the little trolls show up. But, one has never been able to pick their neighbors, dontcha know.

And Lynn,,I dont know too many people who wish THEY could eat brains and kidneys...

Lynn C

Oh come on. It's a little irresponsible, isn't it? These fatcats just eat this stuff to show off. They don't even like it. I have heard them bragging about all the weird animal flesh they've eaten. It's just macho, and killing for ego.


If they were eating animals not usually mass produced for consumption, then I would probably agree with you. But any of the aforementioned food items can be bought at specialty grocery stores. I wouldn't eat most of it, but if someone wants to pay $$$ to do so...

I would rather you focus your unhappiness toward Food Network that shows food eating contests that show people gorging down food until they throw up. Now THAT is disgusting.

Lynn C

Its just another form of radical chic. Rich people who say they're liberals and humanitarian but support the killing and eating of animals for no mbetter reason than to be seen doing it. It is corrupt.

Who knew, that you knew, DJ Riz? I met him "back in the day" when he worked in that record store on Broadway onn
Capitol Hill.He did a guest dj thing for my daughter's pre-school. I gave him a joint, as a tip. I was a lot hipper then.


No matter what you're writing about, even pig's kidney, you write so well, Michael. I find myself looking forward to these Sunday food journeys even though I am usually here to find out what a jerk Dori Monson is.

I'm on the fence . . . Lynn, we need to give up meat and save the planet! But, for those who like it, bon appetit.

Michael, this is one rich piece of writing.

And everyone has to remember that chucks is . . . just a salesman. He regards himself as being at the top of the food chain. That chain includes poor people as well. He eats them for breakfast.


Good review! I don't care for exotic cuts of meat, like tongue, but other than that, it was good to see a review of a local restaurant on this blog!

joanie hussein for obama

A lot of older Americans would be surprised that tongue is an exotic meat.

I've seen lots of tongues boiled on the top of my mom's stove in my time. Our agri-ancestors knew what to do with tongues.

One of my earliest memories is visiting a friend's farm in the Skagit Valley and seeing a freshly slaughtered cow with her poor tongue fully protruded. Not a sight one easily forgets even though I was probably five or six at the time.

Never would eat tongue. Never will.


Eating Tongue. A little too exotic for me.
Tasting something that is tasting you.


I don't eat faces.


organs are great. read Nina Planck's "Real Food."


When you are in uncomfortable position and have no money to move out from that point, you will have to receive the loans. Just because it would help you unquestionably. I get car loan every single year and feel myself OK just because of it.
