The Top 100 List: #53 Il Posto’s “Osso Buco”


Il Posto “Osso Bucco”

Location: 17th st

Rating: 7.5 (out of 10)

Price: $27

The Skinny: “He’s an arrogant asshole.”  Were the words out of chef/owner Andrea Frizzi within minutes of meeting me.  He was talking about Tiger Woods, but I instantly liked him and his straight forward absence of pretense.  He’s the crazy uncle from Italy who knows some hundred year old family recipes like the back of his hand – and the whole restaurant kinda goes right along with him.  Chalk board with the menu, open kitchen, and down to earth, no frills, homestyle Italian cuisine.

The Wednesday-only Osso Bucco was satisfyingly classic.  The lamb shanks separated easily, but not too easily – the ribbons of meat remaining tender and full of flavor.  The surrounding risotto was good, but not incredible.  But what was incredible was the bone marrow.  It was sensational.  It was the kind of plate that, although it may not stand out, makes you appreciate just how good these old school flavors really are.

    In addition, shorter vertical tower is often a unique feature of these scanners that allows the cashier to scan products as he is seated.
    If you are convinced, and you really are into not waste time
    and money here’s ways to get it. The problem with incandescent light bulbs is always that 98% of the energy they’ll
    use is lost in heat, this makes it immensely inefficient with regards to energy use; this really is based on the common method that electricity is passed by way
    of a resistive wire which then causes it to get hot and glow, enough
    resistance inside wire filament and you also get light.
