With its guiding principles—no kitchen tool more current than 1849 and strict lo-cal provisioning for meats and vegetables (“No perishable ingredient may travel further than a good, strong horse”)—this restaurant is doing something fundamentally right. The tiny dining room (twelve tables, so reserve!) sets the stage for some of the city’s most interesting dining. Five- and seven-course prix-fixe menus take one from tantalizing. And now there’s lunch, for those of us on a more modest budget. It started as a pop-up eight months ago and features a monthly changing theme menu with three or four options. Our visit? New Orleans–inspired boudin balls, unlike any (usually sodden) version you’ve had be-fore, and a choice of po’boys; snapper on a sturdy homespun baguette with a side of red beans and rice took us straight to Market Street.
