Roosevelt Island Resident David Santos Greenwich Village Restaurant Louro Reviewed By NY Times

 The NY Times reviewed Roosevelt Island resident David Santos' new Greenwich Village Restaurant Louro today.

An excerpt from the review:
Not until I’d tried sweet potatoes with butterscotch peas and curls of tender sepia; twirled dan-dan noodles in a hot-and-sour vinaigrette; turned velvety spinach and bluefoot shrimp around and around in Mozambican peanut sauce; slashed the yolk of a poached egg so it would spill out over crunchy rice and sour kimchi; and felt my mouth water at the first bite of tart passionfruit curd — not until then did it occur to me that I had been eating a tasting menu...
... Mr. Santos began serving theme dinners like this in November 2011, about a year before he opened Louro. The series began as a private supper club in his apartment, and the freewheeling approach he developed there has been transplanted to the restaurant. His cooking ranges avidly through flavors from around the globe, but what it expresses most clearly is the sheer pleasure of being set loose in the kitchen....

... Rather than accept life as a journeyman, he stepped away from restaurants and started the supper club, cooking for about 16 people at a time in his home kitchen on Roosevelt Island. He called it Um Segredo, Portuguese for a secret. The name was accurate for a few weeks....
Louro received one star from the reviewer.

Frites & Fries described a dinner at Louro's with David Santos:
... I’ll always adore his food — maybe it’s the richness of the dishes, the flavors, or maybe it’s the fact that he usually has a lamb dish on the menu (my favorite lamb dishes in the city have always been something he’s made). I’m also always in awe of him: how he seems to never run out of food ideas, and how Louro became a reality rather than just a dream. After having so many Dave dishes for the past three years, he always manages to surprise me....

David Santos was the seafood chef at Roosevelt Island's Pier NYC last summer.

Dave Santos is a gifted and imaginative chef. Louro is fun and the food is far more delicious than the review would have you believe. The restaurant deserved two stars. The fact that Pete Wells gave it only one says more about Wells than it does about the Louro.
