This is a steak-y, onion-y, tartare, not a spicy steak tartare.
It is a raw beef lovers dream. Big chunky prime, full of sweet, mineral-rich goodness.
If someone had told us it is best paired with a medium-bodied, slightly sweet, $20 bottle of Golden Muscat from the Alto Adige (ALL-toe AH-dee-jay), we would’ve told them to get their head examined.
But darned if it don’t taste like a match made in heaven — the ever-so-cloying finish of the wine accentuating the subtle gaminess of the meat. Who knew?
Well, bartender Micki knew, that’s who….and that’s why he suggested it to us.
And that’s why we love hanging out in restaurants.
Because there’s nothing quite like getting such a lip-smacking, wine and food surprise.
Just like there’s nothing quite like eating Carnevino’s meat — raw or cooked.
It costs $22.
Just thought you’d like to know.
