Swanky yet relaxed, this Coast Highway landmark has fresh energy thanks to executive chef Jon Blackford. A smattering of old reliables—Caesar salad and a killer house burger—remain on the roster, but Blackford adds new starters that include pork belly hash and house-cured charcuterie, and the daily chef's tasting menu is solid. Happy hour draws a stream of regulars, and nights and weekends get lively in the sexy bar. Shelly Register still oversees gourmet sandwiches and desserts at A Market next door. Full bar.
