Maybe you wanted an enticing small plate to go with your cocktails for the evening. Maybe you’re trying to whet your appetite before the main course. Or maybe you just really love the tender taste of lamb. No matter why you chose the Herb-Crusted Lamb Medallions from Queen & Glass, you’ll love every bite.
All of the dishes at Queen & Lamb are exquisite, but the restaurant truly surpasses all expectations with this small plate, from flavor to presentation. The black slate serving as the platter provides a dark contrast to the colorful greens and reds on top—a contrast that would be lost on a traditional plate. It’s lined with servings of garlic fingerling potatoes and juicy roasted tomatoes, all laying on top of whipped gorgonzola. A warm salad of micro arugula and snap beans rests on the side, covered with a sweet apple cider glaze. The sweetness of the glaze works well with the robust gorgonzola, so that neither overpowers the dish.
But the stars of the show are truly the lamb medallions. The specialty blend of herbs complements the tender meat by creating a crisp crust that’s satisfying from the first bite. Lined up in the center of the slate, each medallion begs you to eat it right off of the bone. No matter what else you try at Queen & Glass, you’re sure to return to this restaurant staple as much as possible.
