Eurasia Cafe & Wine Bar Restaurant Review: Asian influences dot the menu, seen in the hot-and-sour soup, edamame, and chicken udon stir-fry. But amidst the appetizers, salads, sandwiches and entrées, you’re more likely to come across buttermilk fried chicken ciabatta and grilled pork porterhouse with collards, goat cheese cornbread and citrus gastrique. That’s because the restaurant’s name is a carryover from the prior occupant. So while there is some continental drift, Eurasia’s cooking is most distinguished by a fresh, flavorful style and local and organic products, evident in the Off the Hook “Rockafella”(daily catch topped with fried oysters, spinach creamed with Fontina, and smokehouse bacon). Dessert could be ice cream (blackberry and salted caramel habanero have been among scoops) or turtle cheesecake. Because the café is connected to the erstwhile wine shop PJ Baggan, there’s a nice, soothing space up front where some regulars start the evening with a pre-prandial at tables amidst attractive wine racks.
