WHAT: Spaghettini & the Dave Koz Lounge, a collaboration between Cary Hardwick and Laurie Sisneros-partners and owners of Spaghettini in Seal Beach-and nine-time GRAMMY nominated saxophonist Dave Koz, will officially open its doors to the public on Wednesday, December 10, 2014. The restaurant and lounge will elevate the fine dining and live music experience, offering guests sophisticated, California food with Italian sensibilities, followed by world-class entertainment in a state-of-the-art music venue.
At the kitchen’s helm is Executive Chef Scott Howard, working with the finest available local and seasonal ingredients alongside the talented Executive Pastry Chef Adrian Arandela, Chef de Cuisine Mateo Rogers, and Executive Sous Chef Ben Hall. Howard’s menus offer starters, salads, pastas, and entrees from the “ocean” and “land” that rotate to reflect the seasons and improvisations of the chef for both lunch and dinner. Sunday brunch will be a continued progression of shared small plates arriving at the table, also reflecting both the season and chef’s whims, followed by a choice of entree. Dinner menu highlights include Spaghettini with saffron, Dungeness crab, shrimp, Santa Barbara uni, fennel pollen, and nasturtiums; Maine Scallop Crudo with fennel pollen, Santa Barbara uni, yuzu, and sesame; Salsify Oyster Stew with Hama Hama oysters, parsley oil, and rye crackers; and Harvey’s Guss NY Strip with smoked gouda orzo mac & cheese, endive, and red wine jus, among others.
