One really rainy Sunday, my friend and I headed to Greenwich Steakhouse to sample their new midday brunch and lunch menus. We sat in the bar area of the sleekly designed, comfy three-story restaurant at the banquet in a corner. Ideal for easy conversation.
Juan Carlos greeted us warmly. That quiet day, he was everything but the cook. He started by making me a bloody Mary to accompany my tastings. With that, we shared the flavorful crab cake (I prefer mine with slightly less breading) and a thick slice of whole wheat toast piled high with an avocado blend then topped with poached eggs ($12).
My friend ordered the eggwhite omelet ($16), requesting it with spinach and mushrooms, along with the side salad. It also came with home fries redolent of onions. I had the 1.5 pound-lobster arugula salad with cucumber, onions and tomatoes in a light dressing ($32).
Although so full, Juan Carlos highly recommended dessert. We shared the incredibly moist house-made tiramisu ($12) and the chocolate coated ice cream balls, Tartufo ($12).
I’d like to return and sample their namesake steak as Greenwich Steakhouse is a nice place to meet a friend, sit comfortably and actually hear what your dining companion is saying while enjoying good food.
Sadly, we learned the Greenwich Steakhouse is now closed.
