The panels of beef emerge beautifully tender, the connecting stitches of fat visible to the eye but dissembling immediately on the tongue.

 

Dissembling? Does she mean disassembling? Or are the stitches of fat hiding something?

Nah, she probably meant to say "dissembling." She's like those Brooklyn hipster restaurant menu generators that are so much fun: just plug in a word, any word, that sound good to you. Like: "panels of beef." (Do you think they are expert panels? or the kind you find on walls?)

The indignities of the week:
 


(Higher-end toppings, for a $1 premium, include a drape of melted mozzarella, snippets of bacon and a poached egg that when slashed unleashes its caldron of yolk.)

 

For dessert, there are slightly damp farmer cheese pelmeni with cocoa-infused skins, nicely muddled with sour cherries and chocolate flakes that promptly wilt into sauce.

Can some cocktailian please teach that woman what "muddle" means?

Isn't "caldron" spelled "cauldron?"

 

Oh - I see there are 2 spellings...she chose the less common one.

Of course she would. And this time she had to make the mushrooms almost carnal.

The chicken is spatchcocked, flattened, smeared with marinade and then settled in the garlicky bath overnight, where it grows more fervent with each hour.
