In what surely must be a sign of the apocalypse, humble hash is now being served at fine restaurants. According to a recent article in The New York Times:
As meat has become larded with high status, and as diner food is reinvented with culinary credibility, hash is coming up in the world. Modern meat-and-potatoes lovers, meet hash, your new best friend. Friendly to home cooks and on the upswing with chefs, who make it from corned beef, pastrami, Texas barbecue, leftover prime rib, lamb necks or duck tongues, hash is thrillingly easy to cook and deeply satisfying to eat.
