Extra Virgin opened up on West 4th Street a few years back. There are a few restaurants on West 4th Street between Charles and Perry. It is nice in the summer because everyone has outdoor seating. I have been to all of them except for Extra Virgin. Last night, I got finally got there.
When it opened I asked my friend how it was who had been there. Her reply still stands perfect today. "It is a good neighborhood place. I wouldn’t go out of my way. "
The salads are simple. Good spicy vinaigrette. The menu is small but something for everyone. The portions are not huge. I had the grilled sea bass which was good with a nice presentation. Every-ones plates looked really nice. The service is slow which is typical of a neighborhood haunt. Why, I am never sure but I guess so you can just settle in an enjoy.
I am not sure I’d pick it over the other restaurants in that area but if someone asked me to meet me there for a drink and maybe a bite, sure why not. But, if you are making an effort to go check out Extra Virgin, don’t. They have done a good solid job and it will probably be around for a long time.
