Eatbar - Any good?

SandyCat Mar 8, 2011 11:36 AM

Hey All,

Just saw that Eatbar is putting Red Apron charcuterie on their charcuterie list. I like Red Apron... is the rest of the food/wine there any good?

    Ive had snacks/small plates there a few times and all I have to say is "meh". Not bad, not great, nothing special. I do like having a few drinks though and migrating elsewhere for better food.

      FWIW, there's something about their sliders that I LOVE, onion marmalade maybe? I've always been pleased by the food selection + innovative drinks. Thumbs up from me.

        Hit and miss on one visit. An outstanding fricassee of mushrooms, but another couple of items were disappointing.

          They have a really nice wine list. And you can get different size pours as I remember. I agree that the food is a little inconsistent. I love their burger. But since I had to start to eat mostly gluten free I don't go as frequently as I used to. I had some mussels there last time and those were ok, but not as good as brasserie beck mussels. I like their boardwalk fries.

            Good atmosphere with decent, but not great, food. Great for a bite with a glass of wine/beer, but definitely not a "foodie" experience.

              Maybe all of you know this, and that it would thus go without saying, but Red Apron and EatBar both operate under the umbrella of the Neighborhood Restaurant Group.

                I actually did not look that far into it, but good to know.
