Schooners Coastal Kitchen & Bar Restaurant Review

: Easy, breezy and relaxed, Schooners sits right at the water’s edge, with great views from almost every table. From small bites to appealing desserts, the ambitious and mostly locally-sourced seafood and California menu covers the territory --- and then some. Creamy house-made burrata and creative kale salad satisfy, but the asparagus “stew” fell a bit flat and the artichoke chowder was watery and bland. Happily, the chef’s signature “angry” prawns arrived with complex flavors from a ten-spice rub and just-hot-enough sauce. We didn’t find them angry so much as, well, “fiercely contemplative.” Juicy, nicely-seared scallops with sweet curried corn purée and sautéed kale were a textural and taste show-stopper. Moist, flaky halibut with a mustard and citrus topping was perched on locally foraged mushrooms, creating savory bites of earth and sea. Save room for bread pudding with brandy sauce --- it’s worth the calories.
