Hot Bone Marrow Tacos at Lulu & Po

Hot Bone Marrow Tacos at Lulu & Po

Welcome to 100 Dishes to Eat Now, the tasty countdown leading up to our "Best of 2012" issue. Tune in each day (weekends too!) for a new dish from the Fork in the Road team.

Bone marrow tacos, $12, Dish #44

Chef Matthew Hamilton used to run the kitchen at Belcourt (the cute East Village bistro replaced earlier this year by Calliope). He served a fine dish of bone marrow tacos there -- hot marrow on warm tortillas -- and fans will be glad to know Hamilton is cooking it again, this time at his own restaurant. Lulu & Po is a tiny, charming spot in Fort Greene named for the chef's wife and daughter.

The roasted marrow bones are served with a sharp herb salad dotted with capers and pickled shallots, and arrive with a bottle of house-made hot sauce. The dish lacks the satisfying crunch of grilled bread, marrow's usual partner, but it's a fun way to clean a bone.
