When the giant … hip? knee joint? … arrives at the table, with its bone protruding from the soup like it’s being excavated from an archaeological dig, it can seem a little daunting, not to mention austere. But this flavorful consommé (served with noodle soup on the side, upon request) isn’t about the bone itself, but what’s inside: that meaty, succulent marrow that you have to dig out and suck down. The true challenge, however, is getting to all the bits while somehow not appearing like a total savage. $14, 3400 S. Jones Blvd., 702-413-6868.
