Sin Sin

  • s

Can anyone vouch for Sin Sin in the East Village? The review sounds good, but this is for a
large party (12ish) and so has to be pretty good.

  1. 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 app├ętit!


    1. 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
