Park Chalet Restaurant Review

: Locals pass warm weekends on the spacious lawn and patio of this coastal beer garden to sip award-winners from the adjoining Beach Chalet brewery while taking in live music. When the fog encroaches, patrons scurry indoors to warm themselves near the atrium fireplace. An overhauled menu emphasizes populist coastal pub fare, and excels in gentle tweaks to lighter dishes. We appreciated the incorporation of Fresno peppers in the flaky buttermilk fried calamari, and an avocado mousse in the ceviche. Ocean-themed salads and sandwiches offer light alternatives to heavy standards such as ribs, pizza and burgers. Eight standard brews and a seasonal selection are available on tap. Seventeen wines by the glass and a handful of fruit-forward cocktails complete the bar. The atrium and patio seat 140, and on busy beach days the lawn alone easily surpasses that. Children and dogs are welcomed.
