Hollywood producer McG and restaurateur Jordan Otterbein, and partners known for the acclaimed A Restaurant and A Market in Newport Beach are pleased to announce the grand opening of the brand-new dining concept, CdM. On Saturday, March 9, CdM will be open for dinner daily beginning at 5 p.m.

The Corona del Mar High School alums have created a stylish community eatery offering an unparalleled dining experience that is elevated, yet comfortable and approachable. “We are thrilled to welcome all to experience CdM,” says Otterbein. “It’s an exciting feeling to open a new restaurant that we are so proud of in the amazing community that we grew up in.”

The restaurant’s design and color palate give a nod to the seaside surroundings while highlighting rich textures like plush velvet booths and comfortable leather lounge and barside seating areas. Interesting light fixtures from salvage shipyards compliment intricate detailing like brass accents throughout the restaurant and herringbone reclaimed wood flooring.

Corporate Executive Chef Jonathan Blackford’s creative American menu highlights unique, hand selected ingredients in each of his flavorful dishes, drawing influence from America’s melting pot of cuisines.

Start with an array of charcuterie offerings like Duck Liver Pate or Fancy Cheese Bread. Lighter fare includes veggie dishes BBQ Heirloom Carrots and Vegetable Samosas or small plates featuring Black Snapper Crudo or Crispy Pork Belly Adobo. Main dishes welcome a selection of unique house-made pasta including Hatch Chili Bucatini and larger plates present West Coast Grouper and Akaushi Skirt Steak.

With an all-new centralized bar and downstairs speakeasy style room offering an exclusive list of libations, CdM’s bar program is led by the acclaimed Bar Manager Ravin Buzzell. The extensive list of his handcrafted cocktails includes a spicy Corona del MARgarita, beach-inspired Tower #5, and smoky La Ultima Fumar.
