I realize this is my second post on dinner at Green Street, but I can't help it. It's my neighborhood bar and restaurant and I love this place. This is what a typical dinner at Green Street is like.
Braised short rib with citrus on a bed of creamed cabbage.
There was no
bone for the short rib which was fine with me since it only gets in the
way at presentation time anyway. The meat was so soft and rich. You
barely had to use your fork to cut a bit out of it. This should be an
entree portion. It tastes so amazing. And the creamed cabbage was so
soft and delicious. The orange added a good little pop to the dish.
House made franks and beans.
Oh man this was delicious! The beans were good and sweet. The franks were nice and soft and flavorful. The mustard added a nice tangy kick to balance the sweet from the beans. Not to mention mustard is classic with franks.
And now one of my favorites.
Chicken Schnitzel with brown butter, mashed potatoes and greens.
This is my absolute favorite. It's pan fried chicken schnitzel with brown butter perfectly fried and juicy. The potatoes are delicious and creamy underneath the chicken. And the greens with a light vinaigrette, cherry tomatoes and fennel add freshness to the dish. God I love the chicken schnitzel.
Macaroni and Cheese with bacon and tomatoes.
The mac'n'cheese is awesome. It's a bit pricey for mac'n'cheese, but its really creamy, rich and delicious. Plus it has bacon in it. Bacon makes the whole world go around, and makes something like this fantastic. It's so rich and delicious that it's hard to finish it all. But that's worth it to me. I want a meal that makes me satisfied and is filling. It's a great adult version of a kids classic.
After dinner, the owner Dylan Black surprised us with a rare beer offering.
A Russian Imperial Stout from Brouwerji De Molen in the Netherlands. 11% abv with a strong Belgian influence in nose and steel-y malty taste. Very big and rich but drinkable. Notes of toasted malts, vanilla, caramel, and chocolate. Nice little night cap from the dinner above.
Clearly you can seen why I keep writing about Green Street.
