Lamb Chops @ Galatoire’s 33 Bar & Steak
A handful of New Orleans restaurant obtain fantastic Colorado lamb chops from a long-running New Orleans meat purveyor. It’s so good that at any of the restaurants that carry it (Commander’s, Galatoire’s, and Antoine’s, to name three) its excellence will be obvious. At Galatoire’s new steak house this lamb chop is a feature, and it stands out a bit more than it would in the more sanctified restaurants. The cook it to crusty, even when it remains medium-rare in the center. The variety of sauces–particularly Galatoire’s great bearnaise–adds the crowning touch.
