Chef Michael Fiorelli from mar'sel restaurant holding fresh hearts of palm

By Sophie Gayot

Every week, we at select a restaurant to be highlighted as our Review of the Week in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.


This week, after my dinner at the signature restaurant of the new Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, I chose mar’sel for a few reasons.


Of course, the main one is the California cuisine of chef Michael Fiorelli. It is obvious that he uses very fresh ingredients—he even has fresh hearts of palm for the salads stored in the fridge. But, I also made the choice because of the prime location of the restaurant, which features a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean.


The restaurant also made our Los Angeles Top 10 Romantic Restaurants and Top 10 View lists.
