Chef/Proprietor Paul Gstrein

Drake Chef Paul Gstrein

Chef Paul Gstrein was the longtime head chef for Bayside Restaurant in Newport Beach.

It’s long been a dream for Chef Paul Gstrein (formerly of Bayside since 1999) to partner up with longtime friend, Matthew Timmes (formerly a partner at Vintage Steakhouse) to open their own restaurant. Coming this July to Laguna Beach, we’ll be welcoming The Drake, named after the famous New York City hotel, in an expanded version of the Tabu Grill space at the corner of Nyes Place and Pacific Coast Highway.
