100 Favorite Dishes, No. 99: The Bone Marrow at the Meddlesome Moth
To prepare for this fall's Best of Dallas® 2012 issue, we're counting down (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes. If there's a dish you think we should try, leave it in the comments, or email me.
Meddlesome Moth's menu takes some careful navigation. The mussels are a safe bet, and the burgers are fine; other plates veer off course. But ordering the roasted bone marrow is an act of true decadence.
The kitchen splits the bone lengthwise instead of across the bone, creating a long, sturdy canoe instead of a medallion. This makes it easier to scoop up the jiggling spread, but it also creates more surface area for the salsa verde that they heap on with abandon. The staff here knows their beer, too. Ask them for an appropriate paring beyond the IPA listed on the menu and melt into your bar stool as rich bone marrow does the same with your bread.
