Brinton and I went to Eddie V's last night with our friend, Muffin, and had a lovely Lenten, fish dinner. Since it was Friday, we decided to try Fort Worth's new fish restaurant -- and we were very happy with the entire experience (plus, Zeke's was packed with a line "out the door"). The first available reservation was 9 pm, which we took. They told us that they have been booked solid since they opened.
We were seated promptly and were walked by the fabulous looking lobster bar were diners pick from one of the fresh that are packed on a mountain of ice.
We started with the Ahi Tartar, which was served with avocado, onion, and tomato. The server suggested mixing all three components before eating.
He was right, it was excellent!
The fish was cold and fresh and drizzled with sesame and curry oils. It was served with sesame flatbread.
For drinks, I had the Fort Worth Cosmo and Brinton had the sweet tea mojito (not his first choice, but I wanted to taste it) and Mary had the house Cabernet. All were good.
For the main course, I had the Salmon. It was cooked medium rare, which I like, served on a bed of asparagus, and had a butter sauce with capers and Parmesan. It was delicious. Brinton had and was very happy with the portion and the flavor. Mary ordered the which came on a lovely lemon butter sauce. I liked that the fish was served on top of the sauces instead of the normal drowning of sauce (maybe to cover for the fact that the fish is none too fresh?).
We were very pleased with our dinner and will definitely go again.
Becca (Eastside) told me that she considers Eddie V's the best seafood restaurant in Fort Worth. I did not ask her the cost of the meal for three but I am sure it is as expected for a nicer restaurant. As to the economy and its effect on "expendable income." Eddie' V's is a big restaurant and has been full since it opened.
