The C Restaurant + Bar Restaurant Review

: The C Restaurant + Bar lives on the same block as the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and it seized the opportunity to design its menu around the Aquarium's Seafood Watch Program, using arctic char, local sardines and other sustainable choices. The crab cake appetizer is tiny, but the octopus ceviche is tasty and comes with warm, crispy potato chips. 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. 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. The wine list is full of fruit-forward crowd-pleasers. To run with the hipsters, ask for the special cocktail list. (Note: Matt Bolton is now the executive chef.)
