Pacific's Edge Restaurant Review: Our most recent visit to Pacific’s Edge yielded mixed results. Wild mushroom soup with duck prosciutto was a savory, salty prelude. Octopus confit was succulent and ridiculously tender. We also liked the farro and burrata salad with shaved cauliflower and a hint of citrus --- the portion was more than enough to share. The “Jumpin Jack Flash” cocktail was indeed a “gas, gas, gas.” Day boat scallops were cooked beautifully and served with savory romesco sauce, but were aggressively seasoned, and the Colorado rack of lamb was a bit gamier than expected. Almost all of the sides were lovely, especially the ratatouille that came with the lamb. The Parmesan potato gratin, however, was a little too al dente for us. For dessert, the chocolate croissant bread pudding was sweet with a hint of salt, and strangely addictive. Despite missteps with the food, the service, the whales spouting and breaching off the coast and the sunset in a setting designed to make the most of the view produce a spectacular evening. Note: Pacific's Edge will close January 15, 2016, for a centennial makeover. The California Market will take over dinner duties until Pacific's Edge reopens.
