Ayres Hotel has another set of remarkable restaurants to delight your tastebuds: Matisse Restaurant, located at Ayres Hotel Manhattan Beach, and Le Chateau Garden Bistro, tucked inside Ayres Hotel and Suites Costa Mesa. These two outstanding venues offer fine dining and the comfort of not having to leave the hotel property to enjoy a taste of California’s cuisine.
Matisse Restaurant provides breakfast, lunch, fine dining, and catering services all within the Ayres Hotel. The restaurant prides its bold array of American dishes that draw inspiration from European flavors. Corporate Executive Chef, Sherie DiBernardo, was not only voted South Bay’s Best New Chef, but has channeled all her culinary expertise into making Matisse a premier Los Angeles Restaurant as well.
Dinner at Matisse certainly rivals all other local gourmet restaurants. Matisse’s dinner menu begins with a list of elegantly prepared sharing plates -- from jumbo lump crab cakes to an elevated mini duck confit tacos dish. The perfect fusion of American and European flavors becomes highly apparent in the specialty dishes the restaurant offers. The Macadamia Crusted Salmon, for instance, is accompanied with a split pea mash, julienne vegetables, and a cilantro cream sauce. Another great selection from the specialties menu is the Pollo a la Riojana -- a grilled nine-ounce airline chicken breast with red onions, sweet pears, garlic, chorizo, and cilantro basmati rice. Matisse also offers a selection of grilled items, such as an Australian Lamb Rack. For those seeking an even more elevated dish to compliment their evening, Matisse offers an unparalleled Filet and Lobster dish with baby bella mushrooms, brown butter brussel sprouts, a red wine glace, and scampi butter.
Matisse also boasts an expansive wine menu and their dining menu has wine suggestions next to each entree that were carefully chosen to enhance the dish’s delicious flavors.
Ayres Hotel also prides itself on its award-winning restaurant in Costa Mesa, Le Chateau Garden Bistro. The restaurant’s executive chef offers food with international flare as he combines unexpected, but surprisingly harmonious, flavors from around the world. Le Chateau caters breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as hosts weekly dining specials that celebrate cuisines worldwide: from New Orleans to the Pacific Rim.
Le Chateau also offers an unbeatable happy hour Monday-Friday from 3-6:30pm. Guests can enjoy draft beers from $3.50 and premium draft beers, such as Sam Adams, from $4. For the wine connoisseurs, a glass fares for a very reasonable $4. Specialty cocktails are $5, and during the weekend, you can receive $4 Bloody Marys and Mimosas.
