We are ashamed to say that we live pretty close to Crawford & Son and it's only the second time we have been able to make it for dinner! It was as excellent as we remembered. We decided to order two craft cocktails to start the meal along with two appetizers. The appetizers were both beef, not on purpose, but they caught our eye. Both the beef rib ravioli (kale, sausage, thyme jus, aged asiago) and the beef tartare (topped with deviled egg yoke, pickles) were great choices. In the picture, you can see the LARGE breakable pork rind which was served with the beef tartare which was an interesting, tasty touch! We could barely snap a picture before we polished off these dishes. Next, for the entrees, we ordered the swordfish which was served with ancient grains, butternut squash, and pumpkin seed relish and the pork meatloaf which was accompanied by potato puree, buttered cabbage, maitake, and caraway. We can’t forget to mention the house made warm yeast rolls with a special creamed butter. Needless to say, we were blown away by the fusion of tastes and how great everything was. We were stuffed from dinner but we didn't want to miss dessert so we opted to get it "to go" with the plan of eating it before we fell asleep from the food coma! The blondie sundae with smoked almonds, caramel corn and chestnut ice cream was worth the wait and a wonderful way to wrap up a fun evening!
