Vintage's (Woonsocket RI) Steak Tartare Recipe?

Does anyone know the recipe?

When Vintage (Woonsocket, RI) first opened, they had several very good & unusual (for the area) dishes. The steak tartare was a more pleasing dish than any tartare I've had (yes, even in Paris). The beef was diced into maybe 3/8" cubes, so you could enjoy the flavor and texture of the meat. As I remember, it was not mixed with the usual condiments but rather drizzled with olive oil and an aioli. As a psych prof. friend tells me, memory is remarkably unreliable over time, but I think I have the basics right.

Does anyone have the ear of their original chef?

I miss the sushi bar, too.

  1. The original chef, Brian Counihan, went to The Local in West Newton and Isabella's in Dedham. You might be able to get in touch with him through one of the websites or Facebook.

    They still serve sushi. They just don't have the sushi bar anymore. I too miss the sushi bar and the sushi chef. The sushi isn't as good as it was before.
