The RG heads up to the culinary hot spot that is the UWS these days to visit Ed Brown's pricey new restaurant Eighty One. Yes the luxury ingredients are nice, but the dishes are neither exciting nor "revelatory" and only merit two stars: "...the appetizers and entrees seem like second-class citizens that don't always live up to their charmed billing...Main characters were constantly being upstaged by their supporting cast: A lackluster fillet of black bass went neglected in the more interesting company of lobster-stuffed endive...Brown has much better success with meats, delivering an exemplary sirloin."
