The Tangled Vine Bar & Kitchen
Posted by don on 03/11/2010
tried the tangled vine last night. what an awesome treat. sampled several dishes. Cauliflower & Fontina crositini was a great way to start. loved the Mushroom Fricassee served with duck egg. the Pork Montaditos berkshire pork belly sliders was amazing. meatballs were ok, a bit soft, but the sauce was very good. the beet salad was respectable. cant wait to try thier other items. the only down side is the place is packed, and as the word gets out about how good this place is .. getting a table will become more challenging.

This place was packed to the gills last Saturday night. We had to wait over an hour for a table, but we scored spots at the bar....no easy feat. Food was really good and a very intriguing wine list. Good place for a date as well. Overall, I'm a fan

This place rocks! Perfect new place for the UWS. Previously, I found myself going to crap places like Sol y Sambra which has mediocre food at pretty high prices. The dishes we had here were really innovative, different and delicious. The fideos (cuttlefish in squid ink pasta), the mushrooms, potatoes with the duck egg and the pork montadillos (basically pork buns), were all great. Great vibe too. We ate there last week and it was fully packed - didn't have to wait though. Swung by on Saturday and there was an hour wait....perfect place to have a glass of wine or two while you wait though. When they bust out the outdoor dining, this place will truly be the spot to be. Very happy to have a place like this close by.

Perhaps it was the mention in the NYT, but -- after only four days since it opened -- this restaurant was jammed on Thursday night. The bad news is that the jamming makes for deafening noise (the very loud music doesn't help) in a relatively small space. The good news: the food here is, for the most part, excellent. The fideos negros with cuttlefish and aioli are a must-try, the custardy texture of the slow-cooked salmon is perfect, and the richness of the pork belly sliders is wonderfully complemented by pickled radish and a dijonnaise. This is by no means a cheap eat, but the great food, and the very attentive service, definitely make it worth a try.
