We silently wept when Jack’s Luxury Oyster Bar closed, but luckily chef Brandon McHale has reemerged with his new place called The Eddy. Anyone searching for the answer to that age ol’ question: where is that perfect little New York date-spot that won’t break the bank? The Eddy is it. Not only does it check all the requisite boxes—great cocktails, great ambiance, great food—it’s also budget friendly and is in Manhattan! If you are tired of the ‘farm-to-table’ uber simplified menus around town, definitely check out The Eddy.
DineGirl being proper dining-girls, we started of with a cocktail and decided to splurge (an affordable splurge!) and get the tasting menu. We also added on a few specials which sounded irresistible, namely the foie gras toasts. The food at the Eddy is inventive but not too daring, and straddles the right balance of familiar to unfamiliar. Beef tendon puffs? When in doubt just consume…
With restaurant groups dominating our plates and wallets these days, it’s a refreshing to dine in a spot where you feel that the passion to create great food and we the diner’s experience comes first. We highly recommend this spot!
