The Elusive Knuckle
Perhaps Asparagus wasn't in season when you graced their dining establishment... or they were put off by your choosing not to drink their beer. ;-)

well, it looks more appetizing than pickled pig's feet like my father used to eat. :) that restaurant is dizzying!

As someone who practically dragged her mother all over Sicily looking for the perfect cannoli, I can relate! BTW, that looks amazing!

I've never had it, so good to know it's better than it sounds. That restaurant is incredible. Good place to lose your children if you wanted.

Was it as good as you'd hoped?

Dazzling and eye popping! That knuckle looks magnificent. Never before this post had I entertained a thought about pork knuckles, but now I fear an obsession begins to grow. Wow! I've enjoyed pork osso buco. I think I'll begin by asking the chef who does that so well if he could venture into the land of pork knuckles.

wow...eye popping visual treats! What a place- glad you got your Pork Knuckle! The two of you look so happy too!

Lose a kid -- i'd be afraid to take a kid in there! Mine would have broken something antique, and i'd have never lived it down. It is an amazing place, and i'm glad you got your dish to try. Maybe you could get a recipe and try it at home, i know you were a home chef for a while (you've told that story).

Bronze asparagus and pork knuckle. Can't beat that with a stick!

I think I would have been overcome with claustrophobia in that jewel box of a restaurant but the pork knuckle looks magnificent.

Pork knuckle, huh? When I saw the words, I thought, Gross. But the photo makes me hungry. I don't like beer and probably wouldn't enjoy most of the food in that part of the world. I think I would feel uncomfortable in such a crowded place--I mean all the stuff. Love, Janie

While I'd love to visit Austria, I'm afraid I'd have to pass on the asparagus. I've tried to like it, but failed miserably every time. Now the pigs knuckle looks good! Thanks for the guided tour. :)

Pork knuckle? Great stuff. Extremely tender. It usually goes with sauerkraut.

That much decor would interfere with my appetite. I also would be thinking about dusting and things breaking! That knuckle looks good to me, but I used to eat pickled pigs feet with my dad!

That place looks like a whole day of exploration on its own, And that pork knuckle had exactly the same effect on me, yummy!

What a weird place - like an upper-crust hoarder lives there. I'm glad you got your pork knuckle - and I loved your jokes! :)

I could have spent a day at that restaurant alone. I have just eaten but that pork knuckle sure looked good. That crust especially.

I am sucker for a great dining atmosphere to a restaurant. The food doesn't have to be all that when the restaurant itself is. I can certainly do without musicians playing for patrons at their tables, though.
By: Jerry E. Beuterbaugh on June 25, 2015
It looks like quite the interesting place! And yes, I'm hungry now.

I'm with you regarding pork knuckle - delicious. Regarding pork in general, I've recently returned from a two-week Egyptian holiday where, as a Muslim country, no pork dishes can be found. And it's surprising how much I missed 'proper' bacon, pork sausage, chops etc. And that restaurant looks amazing.

Hmm. Okay I guess I need to add this to my bucket list (both the restaurant and your elusive pork knuckle). And as far as Napoleon goes, I think that you could do many things right by including a meal of beef wellington in a day's activities.

That knuckle looked delicious! What a cool place too. I'd love to see that.
