A corner eatery from the Dunlay's folks

What if an NHL superstar left the sport in his prime to open up a neighborhood eatery? Well, it definitely wouldn't be called Crosby's Kitchen (that dude's wayyy too concussed), a new hang from the Dunlay's folks (and actually named for one of the owner's daughters) sporting Mason jar pendant lights overlooking dark wood, a rotisserie-equipped open kitchen, and navy banquettes, which, ironically, can seat an army. Said rotisserie's burning a mix of apple, cherry & oak to crank out the likes of herb-crusted, double-cut Berkshire pork chops, pepper-crusted Angus prime rib, and piquillo pepper-sauced leg of lamb, which often leaves people speechless, just like in that Silence of the Lambs movie*. Non-rotisserie bites include snackage like lobster deviled eggs and maple-buttered skillet cornbread, NY strips with A-Rod throwing tons of cash around but mostly just singles because he's weirdly cheap Worcestershire butter, and orecchiette w/ spicy pork ragu, ricotta salata 'n Swiss chard.Sauce-wise, the robust wine list includes 16 glass pours, plus there's a sextet of crafty drafts (Two Brothers Ebe's Weiss, Great Lakes Eliot Ness), and cocktails like the white whiskey/ raspberry liqueur/ lemon Southport Slammer -- too many of which may end up leaving you confused and in Pittsburgh. *Not entirely familiar with the plot of Silence of the Lambs
