i know people here love organs and stuff like that. i'm just curious if anyone has ever been to a place that specializes in that sort of thing. i went to an offal restaurant in san francisco a few years ago. it was pretty good and even though it's a pretty famous place the name escapes me.

It is probably Incanto in San Francisco. I had the most amazing tripe there in October as well as a double cut pork chop and local clams. Also some of the most amazing Italian wines.

In Greece, it's very easy to find kokoretsi (fire-roasted liver, heart, kidneys, lungs, spleen, all wrapped in intestines), and fried liver. Also popular in specialized restaurants is goat/sheep tripe soup (tripe and intestines in an avgolemono sauce).

I had my first offal at Gauchito Grill in San Marcos, CA.

Blood sausage, sweetbreads, and kidney. Not to mention the free empanadas, which we won't mention, since they're definitely not paleo.

There is a offal restaurant near the Eiffel Tower. A friend learned about it in some fancy restaurant guide. Small, nice place and the food was good. But the staff didn't speak English, and it is hard to use sign language to describe innards. Still, if you can speak/read French and are in Paris it is worth investigating.

Yes, yes, yes. For this thread I am NOT counting liver, fyi.

Animal in Los Angeles, particularly. Also, Momofuku in NYC (head cheese, brains, all kinds of awesomeness).

Have had offal at lots of other restaurants that don't specialize, per se:

bone marrow at Blue Ribbon in NYC

bone marrow at Osteria Mozza in Los Angeles

corned elk tongue at Curious Kumquat in Silver City, NM

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.

I eat so much offal that if i wanted to have something in restaurant, it would be something like grilled wild finnish deer.

When I visit my parents, there's a diner we go to that has a liver special. Dad and I choose it every time.
