Midtown Manhattan is a mecca for all things culinary. One place that is quite popular among the locals is called RedEye Grill located on 7th Avenue across the street from Carnegie Hall.
There are plenty of options for lovers of steak, seafood or Vegetarians alike. On a recent visit, there were three of us that stopped in for a light dinner. We all started with a bowl of the Vegan soup of the day which was a cauliflower broth. It was very tasty with large chunks of cauliflower and other veggies and made a great starter on a cold winter day.
Our next eat was the Yellowtail Jalapeno Sashimi Platter. Thinly sliced yellowtail fish topped with diced jalapenos. The fish was tender and moist, excellent.
We also split the RedEye Signature Salad for two. Spinach and baby gem lettuce tossed with hearts of palm, tomatoes, avocado and celery in a Dijon dressing. The salad is normally served with bacon (which we had omitted) and a poached egg which we asked for on the side. The salad was nice and hearty- we would not be filled up on this salad but it is served as more of an accompaniment (as opposed to an entrée salad) and then again, we were only there for lite bites.
Naturally, being that I am The Hungry Sprout, I could not pass up on the side of Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Cashews. While I would have preferred the sprouts to be crunchy and roasted, they were served what seemed to be steamed. They were also delicious as all Brussels Sprouts to me are, but they were not quite the go to dish I was hoping for.
The menu is changed on occasion but remains to be innovative. On a prior visit I fell in love with the Strawberry Shrimp Sushi roll. Unfortunately it seems that dish did not make the cut to the recent menu. However, there are plenty of other creative offerings to choose from. RedEye continues to remain a great place for a wonderful meal at the end of a long day. 4 out of 5 sprouts.
