Chef Jordan Toft at the Eveleigh introduced a new winter menu this week and one of the winning dishes is the Sonoma Lamb Meatballs. These meatballs are served with a crunchy breadcrumb salsa and "lamb chopper" cheese. The meatballs are served pink in the middle, which I had never seen before. They are juicy and have a distinct lamb flavor to them. The thin shredded lamb chopper cheese added a salty element to the dish. The meatballs are served three to an order and are relatively large. They are priced at $16.
If you haven't tried the Eveleigh yet, this is a great excuse to get there and try Toft's food and Dave Kupchinsky and Kiowa Bryan's cocktails.
