Update: Cafe Pinot's rotisserie menu gone the way of the land line
Several short days after it was introduced (and we blogged about it), chef Kevin Meehan's new rotisserie menu at Cafe Pinot is no more. It turns out that some customers did not enjoy the idea of lamb juices in communion with chicken juices, since one big rotisserie was being used for all the meats. Instead Meehan has switched things up to offer the same menu (lamb, squab, suckling pig, rabbit, sea bass) roasted in the oven (and far from the impressionable chicken flesh) and is calling it "Roti du Jour."
Mmmmm, that still sounds pretty darn good.
