Trenchermen Restaurant Review

: If you like to indulge with wild abandon, Trenchermen has your back. Brothers Patrick and Michael Sheerin (the latter has now left the restaurant) created a menu designed around overindulgence --- at an accessible price point. Tona Palomino (wd-50) designed the sips, so you can count on those being every bit as essential. Flecked with pickles, the aptly named pickled tots explode with flavor. Sepia (cuttlefish) “noodles” recall pasta, albeit with avocado, chive and pickled watermelon components. Meanwhile, hake lounges in warming piquillo pepper broth. For dessert, the cider donuts with Delirium ice cream can’t be denied. And about those cocktails: we’re partial to the Hairy Buffalo, a carbonated tequila, watermelon shrub and lime concoction.
