My husband and I had long been wanting to eat at the Cass House restaurant but we live fairly far away. Restaurant Month lured us there. In January in San Luis Obispo County, many high-end restaurants will offer a special three course meals for $30 throughout the month. In the case of the Cass House, they would only go down to three courses for $45, and then only on Sunday and Monday nights, but we saw our opportunity and leapt at it. The restaurant is in the living and dining rooms of a beautifully restored Victorian house which also rents out five bedrooms. The meals were described in elaborate detail and change every night. The service was impressive and the food delicious and adventuresome, but the quantities were laughable. The raison roll was literally the size of a walnut. Only two were served, along with two 1/4 inch slices of walnut bread. The courses were served on large white platters, but were about half a cup of food each at most. The Tarte Tatin was a three-inch round of pastry with maybe a quarter of a sliced apple on it accompanied by a tablespoon of bay leaf ice cream. At the end of the meal were were ready to go somewhere else and have dinner again, because we felt that we had only just had appetizers. And, mind you, these were discounted prices. Yet despite the ridiculously small quantities of food, the place was full on a Monday night. So you might want to come and check it out, but just don't bring your appetite.
