2. Sweetbreads at Michy's

The ingredients that compose the "other" degrees of this dish tend to change every now and then, but no matter how they are presented, the sweetbreads at Michy's are always delicious. They are served "Milanesa" style, meaning dipped and deep fried, and cooked just to a firm center. Sweetbreads can be tricky, because if you overdo the fry time, the sweetbreads themselves begin to liquify inside, turning runny. It's not pretty. Yet, Michelle Bernstein's sweetbreads are a joy to behold, snack-like lumps of glandular gold. The current menu version is one of our favorites; firm black eyed peas heavily scented with the smell and flavor of smoky bacon ($12 for a half portion, $18 for a full sized helping, which we highly recommend!). Atop the mountain sits the sweetbreads, which deserve a quick swirl in the sweet cider gastrique that rims the plate.
