Orange County Restaurant Week is still going strong, and so are we!
Yesterday, we had lunch at Eureka! Today, we headed over to Costa Mesa to try out Scott’s Restaurant & Bar to sample their Restaurant Week offerings. You can eat out everyday when you live the Dot Com Lifestyle. 🙂
Scott’s Restaurant & Bar offers fresh, locally sourced and organic ingredients to create unique yet classic dishes. Whether you are looking for seafood, steak, or an amazing salad, we have it all. Located in the heart of downtown Costa Mesa by South Coast Plaza and Segerstrom Center of the Arts, Scott’s is where to eat in Orange County if you’re looking for a quick lunch between meetings, or a pre-show dinner before heading to the theater.
Scott’s Restaurant & Bar specializes in sustainable seafood and the prime-aged steaks. In business for over 25 years, Scott’s has become a landmark restaurant. Executive Chef Michael Doctulero creates new American cuisine with influences from Asian, French, classic American and beyond. The restaurant only use produces harvested from local organic farms. All the seafood dishes on Scott’s menu are sustainable and backed by the Seafood of the Future Foundation.
The reason Scott’s is a landmark restaurant is not just because of its food. The restaurant is HUGE! I’ve never seen a fine-dining restaurant this big before. It must seat at least 400 people.
Our $20 per person Restaurant Week lunch menu consisted of an appetizer and an entree. Most of the OC Restaurant Week menus include a dessert course, but I guess Scott’s couldn’t fit that into the budget. However, there is dessert on the $50 Restaurant Week dinner menu.
There were six appetizers and five entrees to choose from. We went with the Housemade Short Rib Ravioli and Calamari Provencale for the appetizers, and Grilled Mahi Mahi and Oregon Petrale Sole for the entrees. I was extremely impressed with the size of the dishes. They were very generously portions for a fine dining restaurant. I can see why Scott’s could only fit two dishes into the Restaurant Week menu.
In a way, excluding the dessert was a good thing. I was completely full from the appetizer and entree, and didn’t have room for dessert. The food was so good, we’ll be going back to Scott’s to try out their dinner menu. You can do that when you live the Dot Com Lifestyle. 🙂
