Vince & Eddie’s is Pricey and Uneven

Reynold | Feb 20, 2008 11:08 AM

Vince & Eddie’s, at 70 W. 68th St., east of Columbus Ave, serves American food and features several fireplaces. It is a pleasant layout, not too crowded, but like most Manhattan restaurants leaves some things to be desired. We ordered a Margarita ($10), and found out that theirs is a “lazy bar.” Instead of fresh citrus juice, they used either a mix or Rose’s lime juice, which could be inferred not only by the taste, but by the clear urine color of the cocktail. A Caesar Salad was insanely priced at $15.95, so we split an order. The effort put into it was substandard: romaine lettuce splattered with mayo, a crust of French bread, and one whole anchovy draped atop (photo 1). It is heartbreaking, how hard it is these days to get a real Caesar salad. Yellow Fin Tuna Tartare with Toasted Sesame Oil, Wasabi, and Gaufrette Potato Chips ($15.95) was a more elaborate and totally successful effort, very delicious indeed (photo 2). The nine appetizers and salads on the menu ranged from $12.95 to $19.95.

We ordered four entrees. Oven Roasted Filet of Atlantic Salmon ($24.95, photo 3) was decent—nothing bad, nothing special. Guinness Stout Beef Stew ($22.95, photo 4) was utterly routine and boring.
