Welcome again to the Annotated Dish, where the creator of a buzzed-about New York entre walks you through its essential components. Simply scroll over the arrows on the image to get quotes from the chef. (We've got Oompa-Loompas working around the clock on a taste component, but no promises.) Today, Tim Love tells us all about his $125 Tomahawk Chop. Love's Lonesome Dove Western Bistro has taken its knocks in New York Adam Platt, for one, handed it the proverbial bagel (or, if you prefer, goose egg). (Read Platt's breakdown here.) But nearly all the reviews have singled out Love's mammoth bone-on-rib chop for praise; Platt called it "expertly chosen and well-aged."
