Trying Foie Gras-Crusted Rack of Lamb in Wisconsin


Foie Gras-Crusted Rack of Lamb

One destination that is extremely food and drink-focused that may surprise people is Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Full of craft breweries, distilleries and cocktail bars, as well as restaurants creating interesting dishes using high-quality local ingredients, it’s an epicure’s heaven. The highlight of the trip for me in terms of meals was a foie gras-crusted rack of lamb at Smyth at the Iron Horse Hotel. The plump, tender lamb was well seasoned and coated in a rich, decadent fois gras crust. As the restaurant is know for its craft cocktails, pair it with one of their unique takes on the “Old Fashioned” or a spicy “Rum.Kick.Punch.”
