One Market DAT report

milklady | Jun 10, 200810:06 PM

DH and I went to One Market for lunch on Friday for DAT.

There were two choices for each course a garden salad or a soup, trout or pork sausages and a strawberry trifle or apricot tart.

We each started with the soup, which was described as a tomato consomme with goat cheese ravioli. We were each served a soup bowl with three small open ravioi, some finely chopped vegetables and a few herbs/flowers. Then, the consomme was poured in tableside. The presentation was really lovely. The soup, however, was strangely sweet. I didn't taste the tomato at all. The veggies and herbs were delicious. The ravioi were a bit too thick and chewy, but had great flavor.

Next we both had the trout. It was very flavorful nicely cooked fish. It had a shallot sauce on it, which was also sweet. It came with perfect mashed potatoes and lightly sauteed spinach.

We had one of each dessert. My apricot tart was very good -- an individual tart with good pastry and fruit, topped with a sauce made of plump fresh blueberries, a mini scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a little spun sugar piece on top. The flavors were fresh and homey. DH had the strawberry trifle, which was strawberries with grand marnier, pound cake, whipped cream and candied almonds. It was very flavorful and fresh tasting.

We didn't drink wine because we had to go back to work. The restaurant was bustling and the service was fine, definitely geared toward the office crowd that wanted to eat and run back to work. Most people around us were ordering DAT. It was overall a good experience, but I was bit disappointed that both the appetizer and entree were unnecessarily sweet, which just isn't my favorite. It's a great value to do DAT at One Market -- entrees alone are $19-$29ish at lunch.
