Best Tasty Tongue (2008)

KARAM

The rich veal tongue comes laved in piquant vinegar, shredded and tender. It's the best thing on an impressive menu at KARAM, a tiny Lebanese lunch counter open very late into the evening at the heart of Bay Ridge's bustling business district. Side the tongue with the glistening skin-on fries and the excellent garlic sauce, a spin on Greek skordalia but with tons more garlic, so that it burns your lips.
