What do you get when you mix one of New York's most acclaimed chefs with the city's trendiest neighborhood? The sexiest new steakhouse, Greenwich Steakhouse! The restaurant was being opened by Victor Chavez, the former head chef of a very famous steakhouse, Smith and Wollensky's, so there was going to be much fanfare surrounding the opening, and I got to try it first at their grand unveiling preview dinner.
I had stayed away from meat all week long, saving myself for what I knew would be a serious steak experience, and became even more curious to check it out when I read an article in the New York Times showing the inside of the highly anticipated restaurant. Let's just say if the food tasted as good as it looked in the paper, it would be well, pretty darn good!
The super cool space, located in the West Village (celeb territory!) boasted three full levels in a renovated, historic townhouse. Let's just say I could totally see myself here on an oh-so-chic yet low key date with Leonardo Dicaprio - I'm sure he'll want to check it out soon, anyway
I felt like I was transported to another world in the very un-steakhouse feeling dining room - in a good way! It was more light and relaxed, with French inspired decor and pastel colors on the walls, plus very comfy blue chairs! The room upstairs felt very Phantom of the Opera - dimly lit, intimate and complete with candles and a fireplace - let's just say it would do just fine for my date with Leo! Oh, and the food was good, too!
