More fully realized is Espinas' beef shank and bone marrow pie ($17.50), paired with a tangle of frilled arugula. The brittle lard crust shatters when you send your fork into its heart, emerging with a hank of steaming shredded beef enriched with melted marrow. Those of you who imagined yourselves in a time-traveling episode of No Reservations, dispatched to clear a table of Dickensian horrors, may be disappointed at first by the pie's tastiness. On second bite, the anticlimax is replaced by a flood of false courage. If this is Barbary Coast fare, you decide, the sink of moral pollution can't have been that depraved. Bring on the whirlpool of death! Or at least another Pisco Punch.
