My friend Simon was visiting Atlanta for work. He got into town early, so we hung out and then had dinner at Food 101. I ordered the lamb shank, which turned out to be huge.

This is the braised shank. For reference, notice the size of the standard 12 oz. can of beer in the background. The size of this hunk of meat was on the same order as a turkey leg. The meat seemed a little dry. The sauce was good; it had a nice olivey taste and the fingerling potatoes were a nice starch component. I took the leftovers home and had those for dinner the next night... it actually tasted better the second time around; I think the sauce penetrated the meat a little more overnight and it didn't seem as dry.
