The C Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review

: The C Restaurant & Bar lives on the same block as the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and chef Jerry Regester seized the opportunity to design his menu around the Aquarium's Seafood Watch Program, using arctic char, local sardines and other sustainable choices. Dungeness crab cakes are sautéed and finished in the oven (not deep-fried), and served up hot and juicy. House-smoked sardine bucatini broke our hearts --- Monterey Bay sardines were lightly smoked and nearly boneless, the pasta properly al dente, but the dish was under-seasoned despite Sicilian accoutrements such as currants and pine nuts. If you want the real San Francisco treat --- cioppino --- there's a respectable offering. At lunch, the Caesar and crab salads both refreshed and delighted. We don't often take note of iced tea, but this brew was bracing and fresh. The wine list is full of fruit-forward crowd pleasers.
