Sin Sin

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.

    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

      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!
