Thanks to fellow reviewers, we specifically sought out Erdiko for dinner, and I'm so glad we did!
We made reservations for Thursday night dinner, but apparently, September is "off-peak" season so it wasn't busy at all. We were greeted and served by Andres, one of the owners, who thankfully spoke English and was able to give us excellent recommendations.
Food: For our appetizer, we had the duck confit wonton ravioli, which was perfectly matched with a cherry tomato (?) reduction. For our main courses, we asked Andres for his favorites. We had one of the fish dishes (starts with a "b" - bilanga?) that is caught locally by harpoon divers. Pan seared to perfection, accompanied by quinoa and tiny clementines. He also recommended the Garreon de Ternera, which is basically slow-cooked beef made into a terrine, accompanied by shitake mushrooms and marscapone cheese. Amazing! We had a great Chilean cabernet sauvignon (I know, a bit heavy for the fish, but my husband didn't seem to mind) and we were stuffed by the end of the meal. Wished we had left room for dessert - another time!
Ambiance: Sleek, hip NYC vibe - apparently a young local designer helped style the space - they did a great job with the lighting fixtures, white/dark contrasts, and stylish lounge seating. Though we didn't have any cocktails, the bar was very well stocked and I can see how this would be a hotspot during peak season.
Value: My husband and I agreed that for the high quality of food (fresh ingredients, inventive pairings, and well-matched flavors), the care and art of presentation, and the generous serving sizes, the price of this meal was more than fair. We could easily see paying 30-40% more for this meal in San Francisco (where we're from).
Bottom line, we had the most wonderful experience thanks to our attentive and friendly host Andres, and our incredible meal.
