Californian Fare: From Woolly Pig Hong Kong — the group behind Madam S’ate and 12,000 Francs — comes Big Sur Restaurant and Bar, a breezy combination of American barbecue, California beachside fare, and Latin American inspirations.
Look & Feel: The robin’s egg blue and bright red facade immediately catches the eye. Inside, a white and beige palette with coastal maps on the walls and plenty of green plants gives off a casual beach vibe. The dining area seats 40 while the bar accommodates 10. Outdoor seating is available, too.
On the Menu: Expect plenty of dishes off the grill and from the smoker, such as Baja and BBQ pastrami tacos ($165 and $145 for three, respectively) and Memphis pork ribs ($230). Lighter options include starters such as kale salad ($90) and hamachi ceviche ($150), while classic sides like sweet potato fries and corn bread (all $80 each) round out the meal. A few of the dishes have a unique Asian touch, as well (the corn bread has Sichuan flavors and there’s also a fried rice option, $125).
Meet the Chef: Executive chef Conor Beach is an old hand at classic American barbecue.
FYI: The restaurant is partnering up with local craft beer label Young Master Brewery on a bespoke craft beer program, where curated local and imported beers are selected to complement the menu.
