My mom and I spent this past weekend at the new Rancho Palos Verdes resort, Terranea. The resort is beautiful and we had a great time. I spent a nice portion of the day on Saturday taking advantage of the spa amenities, hoping in and out of the jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna.
This was the view from our room of the coast (above) and the pool (below).
For dinner we ate at their signature restaurant Mar'sel. It's pretty tough getting reservations here, so we ate in the bar area, which turned out to be perfect. We were feeling indecisive and couldn't chose an entree, so we ordered 4 starters for some variety.
Dinner started with an amuse bouche from the chef, a prosciutto wrapped fig with feta.
Crispy Duch leg confit over sunchokes and sunchoke puree. Definitely a highlight of our meal.
A unique take on a favorite coffee drink, the sweet corn macchiato with petite croque madamme. The top of the macchiato was a fluffy potatoes with sweet corn soup below. This was incredible!Potato gnochi with peas, prosciutto and parmasan in a cream sauce.
We finished with the crudo of white fish with fresno chile, watermelon cubes, olive oil and 4 salts.
Dinner was very nice and overall the resort is nice!
