Last week the specials included a pork belly with fig and a salty carmel sauce ($4), steak frites with aioli ($12) and a burger made from an 8 oz. piedmontese patty covered in a special sauce and red onions on a brioche bun ($8).
From the protein side, my favorite was a few slices of piedmontese strip, served with light whipped potatoes lit up with horseradish.
But i am obsessing much more about the more rustic piedmontese wines at the moment.
