Crispy Fried Sweetbreads ($12)
If you're one of those poor misguided souls who feel that all offal is awful, you've obviously never encountered this east-side bistro's unique take on the lowly veal thymus. You'd swear you were eating Buffalo chicken wings, especially since these milk-fed Delft Blue beauties come lovingly battered, deep-fried and dunked in blue cheese aioli. The Colonel could sell these suckers by the bucketload. Does chef Craig Madore have any other offal ideas up his sleeve?
"I'd really like to do something like pickled tongue or trotters in a salad, but I don't think the management is ready for them yet."
Of course, that's what they said about glands.
