This weekend was symphony night, and we decided to treat ourselves to dinner at Seldom Blues before the concert. I've heard a lot about this trendy restaurant that overlooks the river in the RenCen. The restaurant is a large open room. We were seated in the center - next time I'd reserve a table by the window so we could enjoy the view. It was the kind of restaurant where they put the napkin on your lap - haven't had that happen in a while.
This place is definitely a splurge. I ordered the Baked Ruby Trout which was delicious - it was served with a potato hash and a crab/lobster stuffing which I really liked. My friends ordered the salmon dish and the scallop and lobster pasta which looked yummy with 2 huge scallops and a big chunk of lobster. We all split this berry custard dessert which was warm and creamy.
My only criticism would be the timing of the serving. Our meals came out very quickly, and then the waiter came with some sorbet which should have been served to us first. Same thing happened with the dessert - we had it almost devoured and then our waiter came with plates so we could split it. Hey, you can't be slow when it somes to dessert around us!
