    Invite some friends to share the Leg of Beast dinner. You'll scoop marrow from the beef shank's bones, partake in the tendon, and gnaw on the bone-in beef of the shank itself.

    Lamb heart with burnt onions and fried mint was AMAZING. Loved every dish except crispy trotters. Wasn't the filling - that was great - it was the crusty dry coating. Nothing ventured nothing gained!
