An unusual style of bone-in-filet at KANU Restaurant in Lake Placid, New York

At KANU Restaurant in Lake Placid, Executive Chef David Haick enjoys serving creative cuisine not typically found in the area. His focus is on regional, foraged and farm-fresh ingredients blended together in innovative ways for unique flavors and textures. One of his most inventive dishes is a Kilcoyne Farm Bone-In Filet, an unusual cut of meat created specifically for KANU Restaurant and the Whiteface Lodge where it resides. Chef David tells the farmer and its butcher exactly how he wants the meat cut — which neither have heard of before — giving the filet a fuller, more beefy flavor with less fat content. The meat is typically served with baby carrots, butternut squash, parsnips and three onion marmalade.
