The Mixed Game Grill at Henry’s End: Elk chop, venison sausage, and the wild boar belly is buried in back, under some sort of pomegranate chutney.
Last weekend, the Boyf took me out for a belated Valentines. We ate some animals at the Wild Game Festival at Henry’s End Restaurant in Brooklyn. I had the Mixed Game Grill, pictured above, which included herb crusted elk chops; venison sausage; and wild boar belly. I found the first two to be a little heavy on the seasoning; if I’m going to eat exotic animals, I want to taste their flesh! The herb crust on the elk was overpowering, but after I scraped it off, I found the meat to be tender, juicy and flavorful. The venison sausage was tasty, but tasted like herbs, not venison. The boar belly had the purest flavor, and was well prepared.
The boyf had ostrich, pictured right, with coos coos.
