Me and a couple of companions decided to give C Restaurant's dine out menu a try since they were offering up a four course meal rather than the normal 3 courses for dine out. We arrived about 10 minutes early, but were fortunate enough to be seated quite quickly.
We perused the menu and noticed that there were a couple of additional items that we could substitute for some of the dishes (for about $9 more).
The first course was an oxtail consomme that was poured over a mixture of dungeness crab meat, lemon chorizo and gremolata. The consomme was quite earthy and we felt that it would be perfect in a mug by a fire place at night.
The second course was the Seared Trout. Only one of us had that as me and another person opted for the Lobster risotto. The person who had the trout thought that it had a slight fishy taste to it, but liked the crushed potatoes, almond rapini and the caramelized lemon sauce. As for the risotto, it was excellent. The creaminess of the risotto made me want to lick the plate and the lobster paired off quite nicely with it.
The third course was the seared scallops with Confit Pork Belly. Individually they tasted good, but for some strange (in a good way) reason, when eaten together it was absolutely delectable. As well the pairing of the creamed cabbage and the roasted crab apple played off of each other as well.
Dessert was a Dark Chocolate Brownie with a Hot White Chocolate. The brownie was quite rich, but a little sweet and the Hot White Chocolate was also sweet, but was interesting in that they had homemade marshmallows topping it.
Finally, we were given some cookies to go. They were okay, but I figure they would have been better if we ate them fresh baked.
Overall, we were quite full by dessert and the overall meal was quite good. We've been to C in the past for previous DOV's, but this time was simply the best.
