Spring has always been my favorite. It starts off with the first signs of life in the form of asparagus, then shows itself off in the form of fennel and leeks, only to blossom into summer’s bounty too full to possibly be able to consume. Pizzeria 712 is already jumping into asparagus heaven, serving a roasted asparagus appetizer and putting those delicious green spears on a pizza paired with pistachios, red onions, and parmesan cheese. In the meantime, at Communal, spring is manifesting itself through pork cuts and skirt steaks. Radishes placed in salads, leeks paired and served alone, Communal has made a few noteworthy menu changes to keep up with the fresh spring selects coming in.
Marinated leeks with a truffled beet vinaigrette.
Onion and leek flatbread, topped with housemade ricotta, olive tapenade, and arugula.
Christiansen’s Farm pork cut of the day, topped with a garlic puree, fennel, and olive.
