The former was served with Acme bread and sauerkraut, and was a bit more meaty in flavor, while the latter was a chicken-pork Boudin Blanc (as praised by Bakesale Betty’s Alison Barakat) with an especially fine-grained texture, and an almost nutty flavor (caramelized onions? the taste of the fire pit?), served with duck fat potatoes, beets, red sauerkraut , and a kabocha-radish salad. Both were delicious.
The dessert at Camino was also a style I like and see too rarely– just a collection of small not-too-sweet bites (candied grapefruit peel, honeycomb candy, etc). It reminded me (in a less over-the-top way) of the “boxes and trays of tiny bites for dessert” they have at Del Posto.
