The Forge Restaurant Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: After a makeover, The Forge is now The Forge Restaurant Wine Bar, with a more modern lounge-like décor and an eclectic menu (note: Dewey LoSasso has departed the restaurant and Christopher Lee has been named the new executive chef). While several Forge classics, such as the "Super Steak," remain, the historic place's menu, like its ambience, is now more modern and casual. A highlight: the Lobster Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich (chilled lobster, chopped peanuts and onion marmalade on toasted brioche). The latter is listed on a "for the table" section of the menu which also includes crispy corn ravioli and pomegranate barbecue lamb spare ribs. Differing from the menu's starters (which are intended as preludes to full meals), the tempting bar bites, which satisfy in themselves, signal the Forge's seriousness about being an ultimate hangout for drop-in drinkers and snackers as well as a formal restaurant. A self-service Enomatic wine system increases the relaxed feel, as do more affordable prices. As for desserts, the Forge's famed soufflés now compete with intriguing temptations like lemon-fennel panna cotta.

Was here last night. This place is simply amazing. The decor is like nothing I have seen before. They have a mirror inside that is literally the size of one of my walls! And the food....! I'm going to recommend the tuna tar tare to start out or the lobster bisque (like everything there, it is served in a really unique dish) good! I had the rib eye. The spice on this made it taste like no other steak I have ever had. I'd suggest that you come a little early and sit at the bar for a little and use the wine machines to sample from different wines. All in all, this place is a major thumbs up...
