What’s the most demonized substance on the planet right now? That’s right: Coke! Like methamphetamine, heroin, and its namesake, cocaine, Coca-Cola (or, actually, giant single-serve tankers of it) was very nearly outlawed in New York City. And so it was with some sense of sinful titillation that we tucked into this dish, which offered a hint of the soda pop’s rooty herbality, plus a lot of the gooey, slippery collagen so remarkable in that cut of beef. And, just to knock it out of the park, there was some truffled root-vegetable risotto underneath. Oh, it was sinful…and so much better than sucking on that can of Coke.
