Pretty in Pink at C

Pink Sangria

On July 9th I attended a taste of summer at C Restaurant. It was the launch of the new Pretty in Pink Rose List and the new Pretty in Pink Cocktails list by Sommelier Kim Cyr along with the new summer menu by Chef Lee Humphries.

Chef Lee Humphries

Chef Lee Humphries has designed a new tapas menu that’s light and breezy, and perfect for summertime noshing: tea-cured Hawkshaw salmon with pickled shallots and tomato jam ($6), squid with pea, mint, parmesan, lemon and olive oil ($6) and a lamb chop with saffron cous cous and raisin jus ($6). C is also proud to present Northern Divine Caviar, with traditional garnishes served in oyster shells ($150). The sustainable caviar is from Target Marine in Sechelt.

Tea Cured Hawkshaw Salmon

C has fashioned the menu so its clients and walkers-by can have a summer fling, with no commitment. Chef Lee has also created a five-course tasting menu that celebrates the exclusive Hawkshaw wild salmon from the Skeena River ($65). And in theme with all of that, sommelier Kim Cyr has composed a rose list, playfully dubbed the “Pretty in Pink” List, which even features a cocktail called The Molly Ringwald.

C restaurant has a new patio cocktail lounge with comfy sofas and a brand-spanking-new bar, that also features a BBQ.

To reserve your spot on the C patio lounge amidst fashionable company as the sun sails west, call the restaurant at 604-681-1164 or email leonard@crestaurant.com
