Silver Trumpet Restaurant and Bar Restaurant Review: This completely renovated flagship restaurant of the rebranded Avenue of the Arts Wyndham Hotel captures the metropolitan vibe that emanates from the area. Guests walking over before or after a show at the adjacent Segerstrom Center for the Arts can grab a spot in the relentlessly cool, white- and blue-light infused lounge and imbibe a smartly crafted cocktail or enjoy a bar bite like the juicy chophouse sliders. Those who are looking for a traditional sit-down experience can retire to the spacious dining room and explore executive chef Carlos Garcia's fun, intriguing take on contemporary cuisine. His love for innovation and ingredient interplay is evident in starters like the crispy squash blossoms stuffed with ricotta and manchego cheese, as well as entrées of charbroiled sesame-crusted salmon with sautéed baby bok choy or the achiote skirt steak with sweet corn purée and Peruvian potato hash. It’s an ideal place to enjoy a post-show dessert, as seasonal tarts and salted caramel pot de crème can be enjoyed with a selection from the serviceable wine list.
