New BLK Earth Sea Spirits, formerly Spark Woodfire Grill in Huntington Beach, covers its three bases and then some. Grilled steaks, notably Japanese Kobe and an array of Akaushi Kobe-style Prime steaks and burgers, and two styles of Mary’s chicken satisfy the earth component. From the sea are Ahi Stacks, above, and Alaskan King crab legs. As for spirits, choose from among 24 beers on tap or consider the off-menu Old Manhattan, a cross between an Old Fashioned and a Manhattan. Enjoy it all amid stylish industrial-chic decor, at once whimsical and sophisticated, and on one of O.C.’s largest ocean-view patios. For dessert, don’t miss the cronut sundae. An express lunch on weekdays promises a variety of entrees in 10 minutes or less. The restaurant is a sibling to the also-new Thunder Burgrz & Pizza in Huntington Beach and BLK Burgrz in Ladera Ranch.
Appetizers, soups, and salads are $4 to $22; entrees, $17 to $65; sides, $8 to $10; burgers, $17 to $20. 300 Pacific Coast Highway, Huntington Beach, 714-960-0996, blkearthseaspiritshb.com
