One of Redding’s newest and most elegant restaurants, the Maritime Seafood & Grill, is sure to create a memorable dining experience.

Master chef and owner Morgan Song spent 25 years perfecting his culinary art at his previous four-star restaurant, The Rodin, in San Francisco. The Rodin was named one of the top 10 restaurants in San Francisco. Song brings his culinary expertise to Redding, bringing a little bit of city to the country.

Song and his wife,Unni,were spellbound by the beauty of the North State during a visit to see an old friend. Soon, they determined a fine dining establishment would fare well in our growing region and the planning for a new endeavor began. Unni admits Redding was much larger than she initially expected and knew immediately they had found a new home.

The Maritime menu carries an exotic array of French- California inspired cuisine. From grilled pork tenderloin on roasted vegetables to Hawaiian swordfish coated with herb breadcrumbs on Moroccan couscous, the menu is a myriad of decadence created by a culinary genius. The dessert menu is equally impressive and offers delights such as baked Alaska, crème brulee with fresh berries and chocolate fondant cake.

The Songs spent seven months remodeling the former warehouse-type building it now calls home, creating several intimate dining areas that beckon one in from the bustling downtown.With crisp,white linen-clad tables and ivory walls, the environment is warm and inviting, employing an understated elegance.  The white-on-white décor provides a blank canvas that is soon painted with the delicacies of a master chef.

My evening fare began with an appetizer of beets, cherry tomatoes and goat cheese on a bed of spinach drizzled with a tangerine mint vinaigrette, followed by a mouth-watering bowl of creamy clam chowder. The entrée was hazelnut-battered pan-roasted pork loin with apricot and balsamic glaze served with oyster mushrooms and complemented with scalloped potatoes.

Every dish was prepared to perfection and the presentation was magnificent. The service was impeccable and each course was delivered with perfect timing.

Maritime also offers two banquet rooms for special occasions or corporate meetings, a full bar and an impressive wine list.Winner of Redding’s 2006Golden Plate Award by the California Restaurant Association for best in fine dining, Maritime is a culinary experience not to be missed.

Whether stopping in after work for a quick bite or sharing the evening with someone special, Maritime has something for everyone. Dinner is served Monday through Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. at 1600 California Street in downtown Redding. For reservations, call (530) 229-0700.
