SIP Bar & Lounge Restaurant Review

: Aesthetically speaking, this dining spot inside Renaissance Long Beach Hotel lives up to its name. Open and breezy with lounge-style seating and no walls separating it from the front desk, the venue offers an easy coastal feel with a careful selection of outdoor-inspired décor and casual earth tones. Executive chef and former “Top Chef” contestant Janine Falvo builds on this ambience with fun and approachable contemporary cuisine that is versatile enough to intrigue both the weary business traveler and the hungry local. Snacks and share plates such as house-made beef jerky and tater-tot nachos are great for munching on while you kick back at the bar or in a deep chair, craft cocktail in hand. For something more substantial, dig into the dill-marinated smoked and fried chicken --- it’s an absolute must. The compact wine and beer list has several picks worthy of a nightcap.
