: Seeking the origin of the phrase my father used after having a delicious meal.."I have dined on the wing of a lark." Thanks for any information. marya
Don't have the origin. But it sounds like the meaning is dining on a delicacy -- 2. something pleasing to eat that is considered rare or luxurious -- considered caviar a delicacy.
3a the quality or state of being dainty... (Merriam-Webster)
