Can anyone vouch for Sin Sin in the East Village? The
sidewalk.com review sounds good, but this is for a
large party (12ish) and so has to be pretty good.
Just ate there last week, Seth, and it's quite, quite
good. "Global American" food with an Irish accent here
and there, effortlessly sleek (especially for a place
this new), and very comfortable. It'd be great for a
party, because there's a big swanky "Leopard Lounge"
upstairs. The dining area seats 50-60, and there's a
full dinner menu served 'til 4 a.m. However, it's kind
of pricey (for the East Village): appetizers are about
$5-15, and entrees are $13-24 (for lamb rack). But I
think you get what you pay for. The chef has some
unusual ideas (Cabernet roquefort sauce for the filet
mignon) and some very solid signatures--my favorite was
black-sesame encrusted rare tuna medallions arranged
around a mound of garlic mashed potatoes all scattered
with deep-fried spinach. The place feels well-heeled
enough to stay put long enough to attract the following
it deserves. After all, First (which, about a block
east, has similar inventiveness and prices) took several
months to find its audience.
Hope I've been helpful. Bon appétit!
we ate there last night the food was not worth the
price,over salted,cold sloppy on the plate.weird
combinations.shows the chef is very young in his
cooking.maybe he should stay a cook a little longer
