Grilled Octopus

A newcomer, but one of our more popular dishes. This Spanish octopus is slow braised in a broth of charred lemon halves, chili oil, garlic and thyme until tender and flavorsome.

The resulting tentacles are then lightly fried in our fryer, then flash grilled over flames to get the beautiful smokey char. Served with a smear of harissa aioli, a charred lemon half for squeezing and a crispy toasted baguette slice smeared with garlic butter.

Salade Lyonnaise

Found on bistro menus all over France, this classic consists of frisée (an easily recognized salad green that is delicately slender and lacy with a mildly bitter flavor) tossed with smokey Neuske’s bacon, pain de mie croutons, warmed red wine vinaigrette (red wine vinegar, olive oil, shallots, Dijon mustard, salt & pepper and a pinch of sugar) blended with the freshly cooked bacon fat and topped with a warm poached-to-order egg.

The combination of flavors: frisée, salt from the bacon, sharpness from the vinaigrette and creamy egg is exquisite.
