Silver Trumpet Restaurant and Bar Restaurant Review: This completely renovated flagship restaurant at the rebranded Avenue of the Arts Wyndham Hotel captures the metropolitan vibe that emanates from the area. Guests visiting before or after a show at the adjacent Segerstrom Center for the Arts can grab a spot in the cool, white and blue light-infused lounge and enjoy a smartly crafted cocktail or bar bites like juicy chophouse sliders. Those who are looking for a traditional sit-down experience can opt for the spacious dining room and explore executive chef Carlos Garcia's intriguing take on traditional and contemporary cuisine. His love for ingredient interplay is evident in starters like the jumbo lump crab cakes with fresh mango purée and basil oil, as well as entrées of Chilean sea bass with toasted couscous and peppered arugula or the flat-iron steak accompanied by red onion bacon jam. It’s also an ideal place for a post-show dessert: seasonal cheesecakes, plus smoked carrot cake with cream cheese ice cream. For a nightcap, peruse the serviceable wine list.
