Oceano Bistro – Clayton, MO (St. Louis)

I came here with a group of friends to try out their Restaurant Week Menu (RWM). This is not the first I’ve been here, but definitely the first time to try out the RWM.

Reservation were made at 6:30pm, and we didn’t really have to wait. It was extremely crowded!!

Regular menu was also served, but we didn’t come here for that. There were 4 of us.

We were served with nice and warm bread as starter. The bread were extremely good, crusty outside and soft and chewy inside. Really love the roasted bell pepper puree with the olive oil.

As for appetizer, we all ordered the Maryland Lump Crab Cake, size was like a large scallop and you get 2 pieces … it was very fresh and tasty.

I didn’t try this Tuna dish, but oh boy, only 3 small cut pieces of tuna. Sad!

This was what I ordered, I thought the risotto was a bit under cook, a bit hard. Otherwise the sea bass was very good.

Dessert:

3 of my friends wanted Creme Brulee: It was extremely tiny!! A little bit bigger than sample cups you get from Frozen Yogurt place.

I wanted to be special, so I ordered something different from the group. Nothing special about this dessert. I only liked the lite puffy pastry.

Oceano Bistro RWM was $25 per person. Portion were definitely smaller, a lot smaller … but worth a try during RWM.
