Saint Marc Restaurant Review

: At this sprawling restaurant within Huntington Beach’s Pacific City complex, it’s possible for a guest to purchase a slice of flavored bacon to nosh while browsing artisan foodstuffs for sale, before settling into orange patio furniture or at the semi-outdoor bar to enjoy the nearby coastal essence and a cold canned beer. The multiple concepts within the venue are far from being its most unorthodox feature: guests order up food and drink via interactive tablet devices. This system may be off-putting for the less technologically inclined (there is waitstaff for traditional order-taking), but the kitchen’s commitment to crafting well-composed American cuisine makes up for it. The free-flowing menu ranges from approachable bites like tempura-esque cheese curds and Kobe-style chili cheese fries to fun, flair-fueled fare like ginger- and soy-glazed ahi prepped tableside on a hot stone. Be sure to punch in an order of bread pudding for dessert. Surfers and tourists alike can kick off their days with a classic cocktail and hearty breakfast items such as the densely flavored quiche Lorraine.
