Dinner 12/27/12

Cooked a few things that we haven't had for a while. This is a UWS version of the Village meals we used to have.

I went to Flatiron for a suit fitting (upcoming interviews) but they were closed for the holidays. I decided to go to the Eatly wine shop to pick up a favorite wine (a lacrima). Once there I ended up splurging on an Amarone:

Begali Amarone 2007. The winemonger said that it was a "non-industrial" Amarone with heart. Not so much of the glycerin-characteristics. Well-balanced. All true. One of the best wines that we've ever drank.

I put together a meal around the wine. Had some bone marrow in the freezer for the past several months. Still good! I like getting the bone cut the long way now. We're also using Murray River pink salt which is perfect for this kind of dish.

The UWS Citarella sells Newport steaks which I thought only Florence Prime Meats was allowed to sell. It's still from the tri-tip. Not as good as Florence but pretty close. We have a new lodge grill pan which makes for nice grill marks.

We finished our meal with Brie d'Nangis and Tomme de Savoie. The brie was good and salty. And I pretty much like any of the Tommes.
