What you see above is not a creature from the new Guillermo Del Toro film. It's actually one of the dishes on Matthew Lightner's menu at hot Tribeca newcomer Atera. The blogger from Wordsmithing Pantagruel snapped the above photo of the "aged squab" dish, which was one of 13 courses on a recent menu there. The blogger notes: "Lightner is quite skilled in modernist cuisine, but not to the extent that he might eclipse the integrity of the ingredients or let it become a distraction." Other courses offered that night included "rocks," "parsley root split," and "foie gras peanuts."
