El Dorado Kitchen Restaurant Review

: El Dorado Kitchen seems to prefer its monogram, EDK, reflecting a sophisticated yet casual attitude that pervades the venue and menu. It’s become a gathering place for those looking for fun cocktails and shared platters of olives, cheeses and charcuterie. Diners sit at the communal table or more intimate seating in the dark wood dining room. Overflow options include a luxe outdoor lounge and a nook by the hotel lobby’s ember hearth. Streamlined dishes are punctuated proudly with fresh, artisanal ingredients in interesting combinations. One wouldn’t guess it, but butter, cream and the deep fryer get plenty of play (thankfully), though salting could use a bit of restraint. Succumb to truffle frites or their pervasive scent will tease unmercifully, or to mussels in a rich cream-wine broth accented by tarragon and roasted garlic. For mains, try the pork triple play: rosy tenderloin wrapped in a thin bacon skin with prosciutto vinaigrette. Top off with ooh-la-la desserts such as dense, moist pineapple upside-down cake with coconut ice cream and dark caramel.
