Let’s have a moment for ramps, shall we? These little forageables that pop up in spring are also called wild leeks and they possess a pronounced garlicky-onion flavor. They seem to inspire a collective obsession in foodists in spring, to the point that there is perhaps even ramp backlash. Are they worth the fervor? Decide for yourself at Lucia’s Wine Bar where you can order a great glass of wine and dig into a petite tenderloin with roasted ramps or nosh on oven-roasted frites with ramp-ranch sauce while you debate the debatable.
