2015 OC Restaurant Week Dinner Menu $50
Regular Menu on Left & 2015 OC Restaurant Week Menu on Right
Brussel Sprouts (Lemon brown butter, hazelnuts & cheese)
This dish is prepared differently than other restaurant do because it has a citrus taste to it rather than just being drenched in sweet honey & the cheese gave it a hearty finish to this bowl.
Cauliflower (Honey, thyme dressing, goat cheese & lentils)
The cauliflower was very tender & the drizzled honey nicely complimented the small crumbles of goat cheese. The crumbles of goat cheese gave this dish a nice mixture to start off the meal.
Chicken Nuggets (Maple bourbon BBQ)
These were very fresh & crispy but the BBQ sauce was lacking in BBQ flavor.
Porridge (Oats, barley, manchego, escargot, mushrooms)
This dish reminded me of a heartier version of Asian porridge except this is made with oats & barley rather than rice. The escargot & mushrooms gave this dish a crispy after taste & the manchego cheese gave this dish a smokey finish.
Calamari (Thai basil, chili, cilantro, garlic)
I felt that this dish was nothing special that you couldn’t have gotten at any other restaurants & the batter was very plain; it needed a dipping sauce which it did not come with.
Tiramisu (Ladyfingers, mascarpone & chocolate)
This was a very light & fluffy tiramisu; much lighter than I expected it to be. I felt that this needed more rum to contrast the mascarpone.
Attentive & friendly but waiter kind of forgot about us towards the end of the meal.
I enjoyed my OC Restaurant Week meal but I felt that the portions were on the smaller side than what I had expected them to be compared to other restaurants I will definitely come back to try other dishes from their regular menu because their menu is seasonal so it’s constantly changing.
I will be posting more reviews throughout this week on restaurants that participate in OC Restaurant Week so please stay tuned!
