Lamb ragout at Amuse

I had a good and very filling lunch at Amuse with my friends Todd and Frank last Friday. I ordered this lamb ragout. It is usually served over papardelle but the chef was making it with big triangles of crispy, creamy polenta when we visited.

Todd and Frank both ordered sandwiches and we also shared a plate of pistachio-studded country pate with cornichons and caper berries. And we divvied up a trio of desserts, the best of which was a chocolate mousse served in a jar.

As it happens I've also had several late lunches at Carroll Street Cafe and a few pre-movie dinners at Après Diem, both owned by Andy Alibaksh, who co-owns Amuse with Arnaud Michel of Anis.

The good deal at Carroll Street Cafe is half-price tapas 3-6 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. (They are $5 all day on Mondays.) My favorite has been a trio of lamb sliders, normally $8. At Après Diem, I usually just have a Caesar salad with chicken added. That leaves room for a giant bag of popcorn.
