Where Was I Eating That Crispy, Sweet Mound of Cauliflower? Joseph Leonard!
Cauliflower is the new kale.
Congratulations to Christian, who correctly guessed that I was eating the caramelized cauliflower ($14) at Joseph Leonard. The heaping pile of roasted brassica is studded with capers, red onions and pine nuts before yielding to a sharp, mustard vinaigrette. A few rough-edged bits of the raw vegetable are tossed into the final mix, adding a bitter but satisfying crunch to the odd bites.
