Here's to Your Health at Pacific Kitchen

Pacific Kitchen may well be one of the better date restaurants in town. It’s tucked away location off of Highland Ave. in Inman Park, along side the Freedom Park trails makes for a very serene setting. And with numerous tables outside on the patio, its definitely one of the more romantic settings I have been to in a while. Oh, and the food is pretty decent as well.

Pacific Kitchen specializes in “California cuisine”, which I suppose means healthy. That’s what makes me liking this place somewhat of a surprise. And, even though there was a peppercorn crusted New York Strip on the menu, I decided to keep with the healthy theme and avoid it. For starters, Lady Steakhead and I tried the Crab & Grilled Corn Fritters and the House Smoked Salmon Crostini. The fritters were served with a spicy aioli and for some reason, honey. And while the fritters were good, the salmon was definitely the winner. I wish I could find smoked salmon like that from a store somewhere.

For our entrées, I had the Hawaiian Moonfish, a fish I had never even heard of before. It’s a white fish, with a consistency like tuna. In fact, like tuna, it can be served medium rare. It was served over vegetable quesadillas with a rock shrimp cream sauce. I loved this dish- everything went together extremely well. Lady Steakhead was delighted to see a Cioppino on the menu- a sort of fish stew for those not familiar. This was good, but not as grandiose as others we have had in the past.

Pacific Kitchen is a restaurant that will be participating in Taste of Atlanta next week, so you should stop by their booth if you get the chance. If you like the food, chances are you will love the atmosphere. And for the single guys, keep this one in mind as an excellent 2nd or 3rd date place.
