Opened in February of 2009, Etc. Steakhouse offers an intimate and elegant dining experience with uniquely magnificent food and exceptional personal service. The owners, friends Chef Seth Warshaw and Yisachar Novoseller offer their customers something different then what they have become accustomed to. Whether it’s an amuse buche to every table (on the house of course) or maybe a melon sorbet palate cleaner between the appetizer and entrée course, again on the house - they try to make the dining experience just that, an experience. And they have a great philosophy: “If we can’t do it great, then it’s not worth doing. Our goal is to serve great food and provide great service. We want to be the best and we strive to do just that.”
The restaurants name is actually a family acronym for Seth. Eva is his youngest daughter, Tzippy is his wife and Carmela is his oldest daughter. And they all know that you will be in good hands with Seth at the helm. Seth received his culinary training at the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan, NY. There, he was educated under some of the finest chefs in the culinary industry. He quickly became known for his unique dishes and his ability to pair ingredients, tastes and textures to create culinary masterpieces. And it must have paid off as Seth won the 4th Annual Culinary Competition at the 2011 Kosherfest. Chef Warshaw’s passion for food and desire to please his clientele is apparent in all of his distinctive dishes.
At Etc. Steakhouse, only the freshest produce is used and the choicest meats are personally selected by Seth each morning. Their menu is constantly changing with the seasons, so be sure to come back often to renew your dining experience with them. Their distinct menu is sure to give you one of the richest, most satisfying kosher experiences in the tri-state area. Feel free to bring your favorite kosher wine to enhance your dining pleasure.
Recently, they have painted the restaurant in a very simple, white tone with wood accents which contrasts nicely to their new, sophisticated, appetizer-heavy, dinner menu. Interestingly enough, what they are doing now is offering more starters with lots of unique and exciting flavors and ingredients. You can still choose from a number of steak entrees but I think their goal is to have the customer try many of their appetizers which are mostly farm to table items. They even have a 5 Course Chef Tasting option for just $70 a person which really allows you to delve into the creative mind and cooking of owner and Chef Seth Warshaw. Some of the appetizers we tried are pictured below along with an amazing double chocolate pudding parfait.
They also have a large party room next door to their intimate and quaint dining room, which really makes you feel like you are dining in someone's house.
