THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chimayo at the Beach Restaurant Review

: Chimayo at the Beach has returned as Culinary Adventures restaurant group dropped its Savannah name and concept. Even with all the changes, there's no other restaurant in Huntington Beach with this practically on-the-beach tropical patio with its palapa-style umbrellas, palm trees, crackling fireplace and killer ocean view. The menu by chef Tommy Tran relies heavily on fresh seafood, but also borrows flavors and ingredients from Mexico, South America and Asia. Start with oyster shooters, steamed clams or a ceviche of shrimp in a tequila-chipotle sauce. Tran’s spicy voodoo shrimp and sweet coconut shrimp have also returned to the menu. For mains, there’s more seafood (pan-seared scallops, maple-glazed salmon, lobster three ways), steak, a rack of lamb, braised short ribs, burgers and sandwiches. The best time to order up specialty drinks (like the mango martini), along with beer and wine, may be during the lively happy hour Monday through Saturday from 2 p.m.-6 p.m.
