David Ansill has announced menus for three October prix fixe dinners on Thursdays nights at Bar Ferdinand in Northern Liberties, with a theme of “nose to tail.” Each week the chef will choose a different animal - first pig, then lamb, then cow - and feature it in seven savory courses, followed by dessert. The entire meal runs just $40 per person, providing an inexpensive way to try innovative dishes and meats you might not otherwise order. Crispy lamb tongue with chick peas and mint? Pig ear with almonds and green beans? In Ansill’s hands, probably quite delicious. Reservations are suggested (215-923-1313).
