Privé blends the historical allure of the Mediterranean with a hip, urban cosmopolitanism. A minimalist décor with bold color accents is juxtaposed by projections and reproductions of Classical Greco-Roman sculpture to create an appealing postmodern pastiche. Executive Chef Peter Karapanagiotis’s menu is a similar blend of tradition and the avant-garde, offering classic “mezzes” like Octopus and Haloumi as precedents for more whimsical entrees like the Salmon Paillard with caramel olive glaze and tzatziki with truffle essence and a sumptuous Lamb Burger with Mediterranean flavors. For those too wracked with indecision at Privé’s extensive and diverse offerings, the Chef’s Tasting menu for $45.00 per person promises exhilarating surprises.
We had a wonderful dinner at Prive - the food was delicous and I loved the atmosphere. Our waitress was very sweet but she was very quiet and snuck up on us a few times. I would definitely recommend the restaurant but it wasn't anything amazing. I plan to try other places in the area before returning.
I had high expectations after reading Prive's reviews. I was sorely disappointed. Inside, the decor was pleasant but the music was cheesy and the plates were dirty! Our waitress was dressed like she came from the gym and was not professional at all. The bar was out of stock on some basic ingredients also. The food there is adequate at best! The bill came to $160 not including tip for three people. The experience was not worth the money at all. I won't be going back and I was sorry to waste a good night with friends at this lousy high-end wannabe.
