Big changes over at Charlie Palmer at Bloomingdale’s South Coast Plaza now that Executive Chef Amar Santana has left to open his namesake restaurant Broadway by Amar Santana, in the former Five Feet spot in Laguna Beach (we hear it’s expected to debut in August).
Charlie Palmer’s new executive culinary team is headed by Executive Chef Sea Kyeong Kim and Executive Sous Chef Ashley Weaver. Both chefs are long-time Charlie Palmer family members and will continue to honor and prepare Palmer’s progressive American cuisine inspired by seasonal, local ingredients.
New signature dishes arriving for spring include an heirloom tomato salad with arugula pesto, baby mozzarella, gazpacho sorbet and white balsamic vinaigrette, as well as, fennel and coriander crusted tuna with pea tendril, romesco, pickled ramp aioli and fingerling potatoes.
Looking for a new lunch spot? Charlie Palmer just debuted a gourmet prix fixe lunch menu called 20.11 that’s exactly $20.11 (quite a deal, considering where you are dining).
From it’s new lunch menu, (pictured above) an heirloom tomato salad, watermelon, burrata cheese, aged balsamic, and opal basil. There’s also our favorite Bloody Mary Sunday brunch , and it’s gourmet burger concept at DG Burger (Damn Good!). You can read all about DG here.
