Restaurant (Re)creation: Park Tavern's Brussels Sprout Chips

Park Tavern and its sister Restaurant Marlowe have both become famous for their crispy brussels sprout chips.  You feel healthy because you are ordering a "vegetable," but they certainly do not taste virtuous.  The lemon and salt added a little zest and make the dish anything but ordinary.  Similar to the padrón peppers, these are a great appetizer or anytime snack and they are perfect for entertaining.  I decided to roast them instead of fry them and roughly followed this recipe and they turned out beautifully.  Perhaps they are even a tad healthier than the restaurant version?  Cheers to the New Year and all those healthy-eating resolutions!!


  • 1 lb brussels sprouts, washed and trimmed
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
