Enjoying a meal while overlooking the beach allows one to savor tastes in a peaceful setting and toss leftover scraps to pet krakens. Nourish bodies and domesticated myths with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale seafood and American fare during dinner at The Sunset Restaurant in Malibu.
Sweeping views of the ocean fill peripheral visions while a menu of upscale American fare fills bellies in The Sunset Restaurant's elegant dining room. Crisp wild mushroom flatbreads ($12) heat up beneath an edible blanket of goat cheese, mozzarella, and shallots, and swordfish carpaccio ($12) starters avoid ovens all together to preserve the fresh flavors of red bell peppers and cerignola olives. Plates of pan-seared scallops from Maine ($26) rest jet-lagged bivalves atop a creamy bed of porcini mushroom risotto, and barricades of wild mushrooms and fingerling potatoes protect the grilled filet mignon ($32) from unwanted advances from stray knives and forks. Chefs bake the scottish salmon ($24) inside an envelope of parchment paper with a medley of fall vegetables, eschewing the traditional Gaelic preparation of tying ingredients up inside a burning kilt.
Seaside decorations accent The Sunset Restaurant's pristine dining spaces as guests sink into white leather chairs and gaze out wide windows at the breaking surf on Zuma Beach. Sunlight streams into the beachfront patio, and a long white banquette hugs one wall of the lounge to thank it for keeping birds out.
The Sunset Restaurant
When it comes to making a positive first impression, the Sunset Restaurant doesn’t dawdle: it greets guests with a sprawling view of the Pacific horizon. Located on a secluded chunk of Zuma Beach, and just a few steps or somersaults away from the ocean, the restaurant continues to stun patrons throughout their visits by surrounding tables with equally stunning coastal views. In Sunset’s pristine, white dining room, large windows look out onto the beach while dates and groups sit down to plates of seafood pasta, grilled filet mignon, and wild langostinos flown in from New Zealand. Away from its casual dining spaces, the facility also boasts elegantly decorated bars and private event rooms for hosting special occasions, including weddings.
