Lamb Takedown @ The Bell House – Ewe Will Love This!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s spring and that means spring lamb. As I get ready to kick off the first 8.ate@eight, which will feature this under-appreciated farm friend, I thought it only responsible of me to do some research. Armed with a camera, notebook and an appetite, I headed to The Bell House in Brooklyn to the Lamb Takedown, which can only be described as lambastic!

20 competitors served up their perfect version of lamb — stewed, smoked, slow-roasted, sliced, you name it — for a sold out fan-of-lamb crowd of genuine foodies. It was almost impossible to vote for a favorite, but the stand-out for me was the Baa Baa Bruschetta: sliced spit-roasted leg of lamb served over a honey infused goat cheese spread with a cayenne pepper dusting on a crusty baguette. Sweet, savory, spicy, salty — for the love of lamb!

The Bell House provided a perfect venue for the unique Sunday-afternoon event. A converted 1920’s warehouse, the bar features a two-room space serving local microbrews, signature cocktails and a limited bar menu that includes Beer Cheese & Ritz crackers. The smaller “FRONTier” room is a throwback to the 20s, with velvet couches, leather chairs and your grandma’s wallpaper. The larger room, home to the lamb cook-off, is also utilized for weekly live music events.

The Skim: You don’t have to be a lamb-lover to enjoy The Bell House. Check out the calendar to find an excuse to see live music while enjoying a microbrew from the comfort of a velvet couch. However, take note, next on the Takedown calendar is Ice Cream. I love ewe! {The Bell House @ 149 7th Street, Brooklyn}
