Eddie Merlot's Restaurant Review

: A dramatic high ceiling, glittering chandeliers and temperature-controlled wine cellar behind a wall of glass greet guests ready for a posh evening of fine dining. Known for Prime-aged steaks, Eddie's also expertly prepares tuna with sesame seed and wasabi crust and roasted sea bass with a balsamic glaze. Request a favorite wine or rely on the sommelier's suggestion from the wide array offered. For those under 12, there's a menu to fit every taste, from filet to mac ā€˜nā€™ cheese or crab cakes. Of course, the child in all of us may want to indulge in the peanut butter cup, which consists of a cookie crust topped with peanut butter filling and caramel-chocolate sauce.
