The Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa announces the addition of a brand new bayside dining concept primed to be Coronado island’s premier Cali-Coastal restaurant. Scheduled to open in Spring 2019, the restaurant will feature a Cali-Coastal inspired menu designed by Executive Chef Rafael Corniel and Restaurant Chef Aaron Obregon.
The restaurant’s ever-changing menu “rolls with the tide,” and utilizes seasonal seafood sourced from nearby Southern California and Baja waters. Additionally, locally sourced ingredients and a focus on health and wellness will inspire nutrient and diet friendly dishes that personify the resort’s mission to enhance personal wellbeing.
Combining California cuisine with a distinct Latin and Baja flair, Chef Rafael, who was born in the Dominican Republic, and Chef Aaron, born in Mexico, combine culinary styles on a rotating menu that blends their roots with a passion for San Diego’s waters and local farms.
Located just steps from the Coronado Ferry Landing on the quiet, tranquil side of the island, the new Cali-Coastal kitchen radiates a bohemian spirit and offers incredible views of the bay and downtown San Diego skyline. The restaurant will feature an indoor-outdoor design and sun-drenched patio surrounded by fire pits, and lush greenery to provide an island escape in an unparalleled setting.
The introduction of the new restaurant comes nearly three years after the completion of a property-wide renovation, which introduced redesigned guest rooms, a new Wellness Center and the award-winning Spa at Coronado Island. Hotel General Manager Nusrat Mirza said that the project transformed the bayfront property into a sought-after Southern California health and wellness destination.
“We are thrilled to showcase our beautiful seaside setting and unique culinary expertise, in a whole new way,” continued Mirza. “Our new Cali-Coastal kitchen will make a splash on the city’s dining scene and provide both travelers and locals with a restaurant that provides a delicious, creative menu, but also an unforgettable experience.”
