Outer Reef Restaurant Review

: "Top Chef" alum John Tesar has opened Outer Reef at Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa in Dana Point. The restaurant highlights seafood sourced exclusively from the West Coast, as well as California produce. Diners can also expect to find some dishes carried over from Tesar's Dallas restaurants, including favorites from Spoon Bar & Kitchen, and meaty offerings such as his 44 Farms dry-aged steak program from Knife, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Steakhouses in the U.S.
