1500 OCEAN ENERGIZES THE HOTEL DEL CORONADO’S CULINARY OFFERINGS
Coronado, CA — The Hotel del Coronado has been one of the country’s most prominent beachfront resort properties since it opened in 1888. Now, The Del is pleased to offer a contemporary destination restaurant within the landmark Victorian structure. Called 1500 OCEAN, the ocean-view restaurant opened in May 2006 to rave reviews. Chef de Cuisine Brian Sinnott’s menu features fresh, regional food and wine selections from Santa Ynez to Cabo San Lucas. The design celebrates the coastal setting and the novel, regional cuisine. Glowing sunset colors, dark wood accents and warm lighting give the restaurant its own signature style, contributing to an energy level that continues past nightfall.
1500 OCEAN offers a variety of elegant indoor and outdoor settings – the 6,000-square-foot restaurant functions happily as one space, but also accommodates small and large groups. A row of three interior coastal cabanas – oversized booths with sheer draperies – provide intimate seating for groups of four. Lined with honey-colored, wood panels, each has a framed mirror, a wood ceiling and candle-niche, creating a “room within a room” sensibility. Near the bar, a larger, semi-private cabana has views into the wine room. The cabana has burnished plaster walls and a large wood table for groups of six to eight.
The interior bar is an energetic setting with a striped cork floor, seating for 16, and a feature wall of back-lit “sunset” glass. The rosy glass wall creates a warm, inviting glow after sunset, when the ocean view fades. Nearby, peacock blue, leather wingback chairs add a visual pop, offering a special setting for couples while helping to form an elegant promenade from the main entry. The entry itself has been moved from within the hotel to the beach-front terrace, giving 1500 OCEAN its own exciting story and arrival sequence.
An outdoor Sunset Bar, complete with fire pits, cocktails and appetizers, offers the perfect West Coast venue to watch the sunset over the Pacific.
Because of The Del’s rich heritage, dining at the resort has always been a unique and enchanting experience. For reservations at 1500 OCEAN, call 619-522-8490 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit www.hoteldel.com.
