Great Meal @ AOC last night


#1

We had a great meal at AOC last night. It has been a few years since I have been back and it is really solid. We had about 8 small dishes and everything was super fine. With all the new places that are crying out to be tried it is always great to return to a place that does things well, year after year.

Notable Dishes
summer vegetable niçoise, anchovy brown butter & opal basi
peaches, dandelion, burrata, cumin & almonds
spanish fried chicken, romesco aïoli & chili-cumin butter
pappardelle, morels, garlic, spinach & pecorino
grilled arctic char, couscous, nectarines, yogurt & pistachio1
pork belly, roasted romano beans, romesco & marconas

Love AOC. Those are good choices. One of the best patios in town as well.

The pappardelle was sublime. The pasta was perfectly soft and chewy.

#5

I do not know if they will make substitutions.

Glad you liked the return CiaoBob! :smile:

We love AOC as well, and glad it’s still very solid. Love the peaches with burrata, and spanish fried chicken.

How did the arctic char turn out? perfectly cooked?

AOC is so awesome! I love the chicken and my other favorite is the black rice dish. So good! Glad you had such a good meal.
