Erwan Steak & Seafood Bayside
I recently ate at Erwan Steak & Seafood in Bayside, just off Bell Blvd. If you are ever in Bayside this place is a must to check out. As soon as you walk into this restaurant your eyes will be filled with delight at the decor. I went with my boyfriend and two of my childhood friends. The food was phenominal from start to finish. For starters we had the Erwan calamari with a Thai sweet chilli sauce it was excellent. We also had the crab cakes they were very good but there was only two pieces so it would be better for one person as opposed to the whole table to share. We also had a few orders of Steamed mussles in a Thai herb broth (white wine) again excellent. For dinner I had the New York sirloin steak with a side of smashed sweet potatoes it was cooked to perfection and it was excellent. My boyfriend and one of my other friends had the surf & turf which consists of an 8oz. Filet Mignon and African Lobster Tail and I sampled both and it was excellent as well and both of them were raving about their dinner. My other friend had a special that night, it was a crispy chicken in a blend of Thai spices she loved it, she gave us the rest to take home and I have to tell you I wish I had the recipe. Lastly I should mention that we had the Blue Point oysters and they were of a fine quality. The drinks were a bit pricy average glass of wine including White Zinfindel, Merlot, and Pinot Grigio as we were drinking all three was about $9.00-$12.00 a glass. This place also has a great bar in it that has a nice crowd as well very Manhattan like lounge feel to it. Lastly when I do go out to eat I make a mental note of the bathroom because the way the bathroom is kept is an indication of how the kitchen is kept and the bathroom here was top notch. I actually was surprised at how beautiful it was. This place is nothing short of fantastic and I have been recommending this place to everyone!!! Please go and enjoy.
