Editorial Review of C-House

Snugly situated deep inside the beautiful Affinia Hotel, the C-House restaurant (we'll give you 20 guesses what the 'C' stands for) is a mixture of sleek modernity and pure comfortability.

Books and artwork are strewn in various places across the clean and open space, reminding you of your dead grandpa's old den, only 4 million times cooler. Operated by chef Marcus Samuelsson (Nicole Pederson serves as executive chef), the C-House is a fish and chop house that focuses primarily on the fishy side of things, so to speak.

The menu begins with the C-Bar, which includes a number of small raw and cooked options (including tuna, yellow tail, cobia, salmon belly, crab salad and wagyu ribeye) at a price range of $3-$7. You'll also find a selection of oysters.

Seasonal appetizers can include everything from cauliflower soup to heirloom apple salad to seared scallops, while the entree menu runs the gamut from mushroom bolognese to a $20 fish and chips plate that we hear is worth the cash. For lunch, you'll find creative sandwiches (lobster club ($15), salmon pastrami ($11)), flatbreads and smaller versions of several entrees. Don't forget to save room for dessert, as executive pastry chef Toni Roberts's creations are second to none.

Certainly, the C-House won't be the cheapest place you eat food this year, or probably even this week. But it's in the Affinia hotel on the Magnificent Mile! What else do you expect? Take solace in the fact that everything is both delicately and more importantly deliciously prepared.

Average cost: $21-$30
