Ingredients

300g (1 1/2 cups) French-style green lentils (see top tips)
125ml (1/2 cup) extra virgin olive oil, plus extra, to drizzle
1 1/2 lemons, juiced, plus extra cheeks, to serve
2 tsp sumac (see Top tips)
3 lamb backstraps, trimmed
2 Lebanese pita breads, split in half
2 small Lebanese cucumbers
200g grape tomatoes, halved
1 bunch red radishes, trimmed, cut into wedges
1/3 cup torn flat-leaf parsley
2 tbs chopped mint leaves
2 tbs chopped coriander leaves
3 spring onions, finely chopped
100g feta, crumbled

Method

Place lentils in a pan, cover with 8cm cold water and bring to the boil over medium heat. Cook for 30 minutes or until tender. Drain. Place in a large bowl.

Meanwhile, to make dressing, whisk oil, lemon juice, sumac, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tbs for lamb.

Toss remaining dressing with warm lentils. Set aside. Preheat a chargrill pan over medium heat. Toss lamb with reserved dressing in a bowl. Chargrill for 3 minutes each side for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking. Rest for 5 minutes. Drizzle pitas with a little extra oil and season with salt. Cook for 45 seconds each side or until toasted.

Halve cucumbers lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out seeds and discard. Cut into 1cm pieces, then add to lentils with tomatoes, radishes, herbs and onions. Break bread into 2cm pieces, add to salad and toss to combine.

Cut lamb into thin slices on the diagonal, then layer on a platter with salad. Scatter with feta and serve with lemon cheeks.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
