Roasted Marrow Bones with Pico de Gallo at Restaurant Iris 


There are few things that make me feel like a true carnivore. The Roasted Marrow Bones at Restaurant Iris do that deliciously. Just looking at the plate makes me giddy. The bones come to the table sawed open and topped with an explosively bright pico de gallo. The pico cuts through the rich "meat butter" that is scooped out of the bones — slathered on buttery house-made brioche. It's the essence of meat — so pure, rich, unctuous, and earthy. My new resolution? Eat more marrow.

Restaurant Iris, 2146 Monroe (590-2828)
