Animal is a New American restaurant celebrated for its interesting combinations of flavors and it's creative meat plates.
I had been hearing about this restaurant for years and finally decided to dive in. Only open for dinner and brunch on weekends, it is definitely worth a trip to try some of the very tasty dishes on the menu.
We started with the street corn which was out of this world. Slightly charred with a delicious aioli sauce topped with parmesan cheese.
Poutine, a traditional Canadian diner dish was our next choice. French fries, topped with a delicious veal shank gravy. I am not really a Poutine fan but I could not stop my fork from diving in to this scrumptous side. It had tender chunks of veal that had this dish addicting.
Before we sunk out teeth into the classic patty melt, we had Hamachi topped with a crisp, fresh and most interesting cole slaw garnished with crisp onions and a hint of Jalapenos. They call it The Tostada.
Our dessert were equally great. The Trés Leche cake so dense and moist, dripping with a creamy sweet milk.
These chefs Vinny and John have six restaurants to try. Stay tuned!
