Tommy Bahama’s Bar & Grill

The nifty retool of the Heisler Building on Coast Highway lends a local vibe to the newest outpost of this beachy lifestyle boutique-bar-bistro mashup. Smack dab in the heart of town, this breezy spot is an easy detour for tourists and locals alike, with handcrafted cocktails and noshes such as coconut shrimp and kalua pork tacos. The American menu is not a clone of the Corona del Mar sibling.
