AVEO Table + Bar Restaurant Review

: Festooned in soft blues, dark woods and large windows, this contemporary eatery encapsulates the breezy, relaxed vibe of Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club. Savvy guests will book a table on the outdoor patio to enjoy panoramic ocean views, ideally with a glass of wine or craft cocktail in hand. The menu emphasizes coastal cuisine and California’s delightful bounty of fresh produce. There’s Pacific blue crab cakes with fennel and potato confit, for example, and a refreshing tangerine-apple-arugula salad with garden raisins, ricotta salata, and lemon oil vinaigrette. Seafood lovers will gravitate toward the loaded paella with shrimp, scallops, mussels and chorizo. Moroccan-spiced lamb chops accompanied by red pepper pesto mash and mint pepper relish is another thoughtful and playfully composed dish. Be sure to save room for the chocolate silk “purse” for dessert. Lunch features sandwiches, pizzas and Mediterranean fare befitting of the view. Early risers can enjoy substantial breakfasts.
