Eat This Tonight: American lamb

Baa baa black sheep

The American Sheep Industry is in town this week for a conference at the Lockwood Marriott where they will be discussing all things lamb related. In their off hours, they'll be hitting the town and most likely looking for tasty lamb. To help them find their way, the Indigo Group has partnered with the conference to provide a round-up of lamb dishes at their various restaurants

The Macintosh is featuring braised lamb neck ravioli, while Oak Steakhouse is offering an herb-encrusted rack of lamb with bordelaise. Over at Indaco, Chef Michael Perez will have rustic legs of lamb and a hearty lamb bolognese. Even the Cocktail Club is getting in on the action with lamb charcuterie. 

Of course, those aren't the only places in town offering distinctive American-grown lamb dishes.

At Cypress, Chef Craig Deihl has a braised lamb shoulder that he serves with greens, mushrooms, lamb jam, mustard, apples, radishes, and celery ($32). 

Kevin Johnson at the Grocery has become quite famous for his lamb ham, which sometimes shows up on his charcuterie plate. 

Jason Stanhope, chef de cuisine at FIG, is plating up a Border Springs Lamb Carne Cruda with walnuts, celery heart, and a 36-month provolone ($14). 

And finally, McCrady's has a duo of lamb on tonight's menu with the wintry flavors celeriac, honey crisp apple, and rye.
