Smoked Trout Deviled Eggs, topped with cracklin, pickled jalapeno, and trout roe.
Note: I swiped this photo from their Instagram--the low lighting inside didn't do much for my photos.
The Meatery Board didn't disappoint. We enjoyed tasting our way through the variety of offerings, particularly the pickled wax beans, grilled jalapeno, housemade dill pickles, ginger sesame sausage, boudin ball, chicken-pork terrine with brandied cherries, and candied pork belly...
See...low lighting makes for crappy pics, and I can't bring myself to use a flash or bring in extra lighting.
...and OHHHH the rillons...I mean...pork belly is amazing in pretty well any form.
(Delicious photo borrowed from Tabelog.)
To accompany this, I selected the "Riff Off" from their cocktail menu. While the name of course appealed my love of Pitch Perfect, the server's description of its contents sealed the deal.
French Sparkling Cider
It's like fall, in a glass. And it paired beautifully with the ginger/sesame sausage.
All in all, if you're a fan of tasty cocktails and housemade meats, this is a must for your "to dine" list. I do recommend getting a reservation, since even the bar was packed when we visited (8pm on a Friday).
