The Liberty Tavern - Arlington, VA

Dinner 1/31/13

Bread & Butter - First, let me mention that this is not your run of the mill bread and butter. The bread is baked fresh on-site in the restaurant's bakery daily.  Pictured is a sweet dinner roll, a dark molasses bread, and an Italian feather loaf.  The scent of the bread permeates the nostrils! The butter is mixed with locally made Chevre cheese.

Pan Roasted Quail - The pan roasted quail was stuffed with a house blended sausage. It rested atop a bed of smoked collard greens and pomegranates. I don't like collard greens, but these were so good, I couldn't get enough!

DUCK FAT FRIED ONION RINGS - Rich and Tender, these onion rings were delicious.

SMOKED MEYER ALL NATURAL BEEF SHORT RIBS - heirloom carrots, goat milk polenta, porcini butter , red wine pomegranate jus. Tender, beefy goodness!

Cornbread-Crab Pudding -  This was a special request, as it only comes with one menu item and is usually not available a la carte. It's a cupcake made of cornbread and lump crab meat. Do I need to say anymore?

Gingerbread Shortcake - Gingerbread mini pancake puffs made into a whipped cream sandwich. All of it is resting in an apple caramel sauce with pomegranate jelly garnishing the plate.
