Mitchell's Ocean Club in Columbus, Ohio is a fantastic place for phenomenal dishes and great conversation on special occasions! On Easter Sunday, my family and I decided to skip the regular home made dinner, and treat ourselves to a delicious Easter Brunch.
This being my first time dining at The Ocean Club, my expectations had been high from the rest of my family talking about how great it was. I definitely left with my mind (and stomach) being more than satisfied with the experience.
We had an awesome waiter named Matt, and he gave us wonderful service and made it fun for my mom, dad, brother and I. My brother actually tried an oyster for the first time because he would get a free dessert from Matt! The experience itself was really awesome, and it was a meal full of conversation for my family and I.
For my meal, I chose the Sea Scallops with Parmesan Risotto, English Peas and a Citrus Vinaigrette. It was plated so perfectly, of course I took a picture of it!
My dish was absolutely perfect, I have nothing terrible to say about it! I loved the way it was portioned and the scallops were super light, which balanced perfectly with the rich risotto. I hesitated trying the dish because there were peas in it, but I actually loved the crunch the peas added to the scallops. I chose the Parmesan Truffle Fries as my side, and they were some of the best fries I have ever tasted! Normally, I use ketchup with my fries, but these were so tasty that I didn't need any!
We all know that dessert is the final course that can either make or break a perfect meal. My whole family decided to share our dessert between two chocolate peanut butter pies. And let me tell you... their chocolate peanut butter pie was probably my favorite thing that I ate (but I also just really like chocolate desserts)! The pie is definitely on the richer side, so there was extra to take home for later indulgences. The peanut butter is super creamy, and is covered in a cold bittersweet chocolate ganache.
My first time at Mitchell's Ocean Club was a never forget experience, and it was a great way to celebrate Easter with my family! Thank you for such a great time :)
