Welcome again to the Annotated Dish, where the creator of a buzzed-about New York entrée 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."
