At this ultimate haven for adventurous carnivores, chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo have won a host of awards for their hearty, straightforward, and innovative cooking. Dishes like crispy pig head with salsa macho, crema, and avocado; oxtail poutine; and kung pao sweetbreads keep chefs and civilians alike coming back for more. With their second restaurant, Son of a Gun, which opened in 2011, and a new partnership with chef Ludo Lefebvre in the works, these two former outsiders have been fully accepted into the rotation of full-fledged culinary trendsetters.
