Stonehill Tavern Restaurant Review

: Michael Mina is known for making a big statement with his modern American food, something that he has accomplished with aplomb in Orange County. Located in the Italianesque Monarch Beach Resort, Stonehill Tavern has a posh, contemporary interior with glassed-in booths --- like something out of a James Bond film --- warm woods and a romantic vibe. The executive chef is now Alan Mardonovich. Many Mina signature Stonehill dishes are available, such as the lobster potpie. In addition, the menu has included a starter as simple as a local-kale Caesar with boquerones and black olive “soil” flourishes with subtle taste cues, and ahi tartare with sesame oil infused with habanero. Entrées have ranged from lamb loin to black cod with miso, rock shrimp and Vidalia onion dashi. Fromage blanc cheesecake and a root beer float with sassafras ice cream could be among the desserts. The restaurant also features a seasonal multi-course tasting menu with the option of wine pairing. Service is topnotch, making it a good place to dine with family and friends or impress clients.
