|Is that the place with the spleen sandwich?
The Sicilian-style restaurant Focacciaria on 1st ave between St Marks and 9th, made the vistedda - beef spleen - sandwiches. Hard ricotta cheese and beef spleen fried in lard served with shredded parmigiano reggiano on a roll.
never ate the spleen, had the same with chickpea fritter
the one in brooklyn is even older I believe
yeah, considering the idea of the dairy was that it was meatless, though fish seems to be acceptable, spleen was unlikely.
