Last night, I attended the opening party at Sergio Cocchia and Wendy Lisogar Cocchia’s C Prime Modern Italian Steakhouse in downtown Vancouver. A red carpet greeted guests along with glasses of Prosecco with Cassis as they made their way into the large elegant restaurant. Guests were treated to a full on open bar running all night, there was a charcuterie bar, a chilled seafood bar filled with oysters, crab legs, shrimp and more.
In the upper area there was a pasta station featuring house-made gnocchi with morels and squash agnolotti; there was also a meat station featuring prime rib, pretzel buns and delicious Lamb chops.
Later in the evening there was a lavish dessert buffet featuring a table of sweet treats that included Chocolate Profiteroles filled with vanilla Crème, Rum Baba in limoncello, tower of cream puffs, dulce de leche cheesecake, chocolate mousse cups and more.
The kitchen is run by Executive Chef Elliot Hashimoto, Sous Chef Kevin Walker and Pastry Chef Andrea Fletcher.
