I’m lucky to have gotten an advance copy of the new dinner menu, starting to serve at Watts on Tuesday. There are a few things I’m really excited about:
- Hot-Smoked duck breast with fig compote – smoked by Glen Lozuke, happy happy happy me!
- Cornmeal-crusted sweetbreads with black-eyed pea croutons – I love sweetbreads, and everyone should try them! There will also be a return of the sweetbreads sandwich for lunch.
- Red wine and sage braised lamb shanks with lots of goodies. Lamb shanks are frickin’ awesome!
- Low country gumbo with andouille, seafood, and chicken in a tomato and okra broth. I haven’t had gumbo in forever, and will be ordering this very soon .
Sweetbreads – looking all yummy!
There are many more wonderful things, and some fantastic-sounding new desserts, but I won’t give the whole game away…
I’ll probably pop in some time this week to check it all out. Readers: go too!
