Eddie V's was the site of the October edition of our Supper Club, and the Sand Lake Road seafood and steak house showed the assembled clubbers why it has become a Restaurant Row favorite in such a short time.
In fact, our October 24 dinner coincided with the first anniversary for the Orlando location of Darden's premium brand, and the evening couldn't have been lovelier. We began by sipping our first wine on the patio overlooking the lake at sunset. All of the wines were provided by Rioja through an arrangement with Wine on the Way. We started with a Vina Herminia Rosado, which is not yet available commercially in the United States. Several people who tried it are waiting for the day it will arrive.
It went perfectly with the first course of Maine Lobster Taco, a signature appetizer on Eddie V's regular menu. It featured sweet lobster meat and grilled corn on a tortilla made in house.
