They get so much right at Stir, in particular their roast chicken and porchetta. Both dishes are full of all the richness and flavor of a home-cooked meal. Served with roasted potatoes and salad. Porchetta is roasted pork, heavily herbed with the skin done to crackling stage. Feel like pancakes? World class lemon ricotta pancakes piled with butter and real syrup.
In a city blessed with the most innovative taco menus in the world, Escuela belongs on the top 10 list, in my opinion. I love the buttery lobster taco and the Jamon & Queso loaded with crispy pancetta, Jack cheese, and avo.
Escuela is located on Beverly, near Stanley, across from Erewhon.
