Located on the southeast corner of I-25 and Belleview Avenue, Eddie V’s Prime Seafood opened in mid-October to the delight of guests who have had the opportunity to dine in or take advantage of its curbside takeout.
A walk through the doors instantly lets customers know they’re about to indulge in an elegant fine dining experience, where excellence is a key ingredient. The 9,456 square-foot space gives off a charismatic vibe, with intriguing artwork, elevated dining, a beautiful outdoor patio and four private dining rooms.
Upon opening the menu, patrons decide between premium hand-carved steaks and seasonal, select-sourced seafood right off the boat. Adventurous diners can dive into swordfish from Block Island, scallops from Georges Bank, or yellowfin tuna from the Caribbean Sea, for example. Meanwhile, the choice-cut steaks broiled to perfection by executive chef Mathew Feldhaus and his team, spend a minimum of 28 days being wet aged, a technique in which the beef is vacuum-sealed and refrigerated so natural enzymes tenderize the meat.
“We believe in serving seafood when it is in season. Our selections are sourced directly from the boats and flown in daily from around the world.”
The diverse dinner menu at Eddie V’s contains signature options like Chilean sea bass steamed Hong Kong style, Parmesan sole, and crab fried rice with mushrooms and scallions. The high-quality fare is what people have come to expect from parent company Darden Restaurants, Inc., which also operates Seasons 52, Yard House, The Capital Grille and others.
“At Eddie V’s, we believe in serving seafood when it is in season to ensure the highest quality available. This is why our menu is ever-changing, with seasonal options available for only a brief time, such as Mediterranean Branzino in the fall and Wild King Salmon in the summer,” said Matthew Youssef, managing partner at Eddie V’s. “Our selections are sourced directly from the boats and flown in daily from around the world, so our guests are enjoying these catches at their most pristine.”
The menu is complemented by a world-class wine list with more than 300 acclaimed labels. Guests can also sip on meticulously-crafted cocktails, including the Smoked Old Fashioned, prepared tableside on a wooden plank, or the Hope Diamond, made with Grey Goose vodka and served with a Butterfly Pea Flower Tea ice cube.
As a finisher, order the hot chocolate Godiva cake with vanilla bean ice cream or bananas foster butter cake flambéed tableside and served with butter pecan
All of this can be enjoyed in the alluring V Lounge, a destination unto itself with a playlist curated for a sophisticated, upbeat vibe with live performances by acclaimed local musicians on select nights.
Of course, opening a restaurant during a pandemic presents its fair share of challenges, but Eddie V’s – named after founders Larry Edward Foles and Guy Villavaso – has adapted to ever-changing times. Dine-in guests can expect one-touch menus, healthy team members, a clean restaurant and social-distancing layouts. For those who prefer to recreate the Eddie V’s fine dining experience at home, there is the Black Tie Marketplace, where guests can order the same prime steaks and seafood featured on the menu, and prepare them at home.
Those who run the luxury eatery, which is the 25th Eddie V’s location nationwide, say they are thrilled with the response from the community in its first full month of operation.
