    The glazed ribs were great, especially with the carrots and collard greens. Alex Marsh is really creating an amazing array of dishes here.

      Ribs are good, and honey marinated ribs are great. Having said that, what makes this dish is the combination of flavors from the collard greens, carrots and sweet / spicy rib marinate. Wow. This is a gutsy combination that really works for Chef Marsh. Again, a very unique dish from a young up-and-coming chef.
      I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
