What People Say

Asbury Park Press Chef Michael ThompsonChef Michael Thompson in the Asbury Park Press, New Jersey

“Lamb tenderloin is a terrific dish that shows what the folks at the stoves can do when they focus: Properly cooked as requested medium-rare, the mildly gamy meat partners compellingly with cumin-dusted potatoes and tender, slow braised artichokes, and laps up swirls of a syrupy red-wine reduction and a lush pistou, redolent of basil and garlic. Good show.”
Andrea Clurfeld, Food Critic for the Asbury Park Pres
