JT Schmid's $30 prix fixe menu options during OC Restaurant Week

So Steph and I went out to JT Schmid's this evening to try their $30 prix fixe menu and I have to say we were both impressed. The attention of the staff wasn't the best but it soon picked up by our wonderful waitress.

The $30 prix fixe menu includes a flight of their craft beers. That alone is worth trying the prix fixe meal.

The first course that I selected was the ahi poke which was exceptional. The tuna was just grade a sashimi. It was served on a wonton chip over a nice fresh green lettuce and a ponzo style sauce. Steph went with the chicken and avocado eggrolls. She thoroughly enjoyed them.

The second course was the blue cheese top sirloin steak. I choose the homemade coleslaw and garlic mashed potatoes as my sides. I should have went with Steph and got the rack of baby back ribs which as you can see in the photo below this review that it was a full rack of ribs. Steph only ate like half of them because the portion was just that huge.

For the third course Steph went with the double fudge ice cream sandwich. It was rich and creamy. Just perfect! I went with the bread pudding which was amazing. It was served nice and warm as it was made fresh and came right out of the oven.

We had a great time and the food was great with enormous portions. So come hungry. Just don't expect the best hostesses.

So you have a few days left for OC Restaurant Week or you'll have to wait until next year!
