The Winery Restaurant & Wine Bar

The O.C. power crowd doesn’t care that The Winery isn’t a winery, but a huge, handsome restaurant crafted to attract disciples of steak, wine, and cigars. They’re exactly the folks you’d expect would follow partners JC Clow and William Lewis from their previous gig at Morton’s, with executive chef Yvon Goetz in tow. If the 7,500-bottle, glass-encased wine cellar isn’t enough, you can always rent a private wine locker.
