Try the Sweetbreads Milanese at Brian’s in Lambertville

October 21, 2014 by  
Filed under Dining

Chef Brian Held has been drawn to the kitchen from a very young age, so it’s no surprise that, given the chance to open his own restaurants, he would succeed. After attending the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, Held apprenticed at many of Pennsylvania’s most prestigious eateries before opening Rouget in Newton Township. The popularity of that restaurant led to the opening of Brian’s in 2012.

With an exposed kitchen and a powerful wood-fired oven, the menu here focuses on the rustic fare of Provence and Northern Italy. Try the puree of mushroom soup with truffle oil for a burst of earthy, complex flavors. One of the menu’s most notable standouts is the sweetbreads Milanese. Chef Brian covers the sweetbreads with a delicate breading and pairs them with a brown butter sauce. For dessert, don’t miss the bananas Foster French toast, which is rich and decadent. Note that Brian’s is BYOB, so pick out some wine before you come.
