VIVO in Bayside Northern Blvd
Anybody been to Vivo on Northern blvd. recently? I went there about 2 years when it first opened, and had a very good meal, but haven't been back since. Was wondering if it's still there, and how it is?
I remember having a swordfish in balsamic sauce, and my wife had potato crusted salmon which was very good.
I wish I could say Vivo is good. It's within walking distance of my home and in IDine-Transmedia - I'm a member and could get a nice discount. BUT, I find it very disappointing. I ate there when it was brand new and the service was terrible, food mediocre. I've been back twice and it hasn't gotten any better. For example: what they call "carpaccio" is merely sliced deli roast beef in a salad. Their "gnocchi al pesto" are doughy gnocchi floating in a bowl of creamy basil flavored sauce (not pesto). If any of you go there and find it to be a great experience, please let me know. I'd love to find a nice Italian restaurant right in my neighborhood but, so far, this isn't it.
