A nod to old Hollywood, the elegant beachside hideaway features design elements from both CdM and A Restaurants, but on a larger scale as the new space will seat 200 inside with additional patio seating accessible by front-facing sliding doors. A glass-enclosed wine room will display a collection of exquisite wines with beautiful and rare bottles in view, interior walls will be adorned with fine art and gallery-style lighting, and an antique photo booth will be available for guests to commemorate the world-class dining experience. The show stopping, centrally located, 24-seat bar will be a focal point in the restaurant churning out equally impressive cocktails.
The menu will reflect a curated selection of seasonally inspired greatest hits from A and CdM courtesy of Executive Chef Elvis Morales. Start with BBQ Heirloom Carrots with pecan butter, dill and herb dressing, or opt for the Spicy Yellowfin Tuna with tempura eggplant, sriracha aioli, wasabi tobiko, sweet soy, and chives. Main dishes feature unique pastas, elevated pizzas, and favorites of land and sea including Chicken Piccata with lemon and caper butter, cherry tomato and shallot salad, potato puree, and basil; Akushi Skirt Steak with fingerling potatoes, charred broccolini, sweet garlic, and ranchero; and Cioppino made with linguine, sea bass, salmon, scallops, mussels, clams and New Zealand prawn.
