The little sister of the original Rumours on 12South unveils a dining environment that feeds the eyes as well as the appetite. Chef Hernán Borda delivers artistic variations on a theme: a meat gently cooked, drizzled with a delicate sauce and plated with a medley of vegetables, an inventive starch and an abundant tussle of lightly dressed greens. For example: sautéed corvina drizzled with honey-saffron beurre blanc, served with a gratin of sweet and regular potatoes and topped with a fluffy mound of shredded cabbage and arugula. With all its brooding colors and original fireplaces, Rumours East offers a cozy refuge on a cold evening, but in spring, it is just as easy to describe the restaurant as the place to while away the lengthening days while sipping from any of the 100 wines on the very accessible list.
