The pan-seared halibut will come with roasted beets three ways – salt-crusted and oven-roasted with beet syrup and beet microgreens. It will be paired with parsnip puree and macadamia nut vinaigrette.

According to Chef Brian Piasecki, the executive chef at California Grill, the new kitchen will have flat-top grills for cooking fish. Piasecki said, “Dual temperature zones so we can sear the fish on one side, then slide to the other with a lower temperature for cooking the rest of the way.”

The sushi kitchen will be expand and have a glass case so guests can view the fresh seafood. A “omakase” menu will be a new 12-course menu that the chef will choose.
