I snared a rabbit at D'Angelo's yesterday. It was time to pair it with those pea ravioli* and decide if the dish was legit.
The rabbit & ravs made a decent pair. It was praised by my guests. I thought that it was tasty with clear, fresh flavors but could be improved. Sonny's guanciale topped the ravs (not in pic). This was an excellent union.
Our other dish was tempura shrimp and oysters (Cape May) with chervil, celery root , and Honshimeji - wakame salad. Same deal here, these were all very tasty elements but not coherent enough. Again the guests thought the dish was splendid.
*Last weekend at the Piazza I traded the ShellBark Hollow folks canele for goat ricotta. Scott & Judy had peas and the lil lady schucked em.....she enjoys that kind of stuff.
