Order Up: Angel Oak
Angel Oak, a new dining hot spot at the Bacara Resort & Spa in Goleta, California, boasts impeccable dishes and decor. In fact, the resort turned to Nate Tanner of Pacific Hospitality Group, who collaborated with Robinson Hill Architecture and Hatch Design Group, to transform the 9,000-square-foot space so that it fully embraces its stunning oceanfront locale.
The team divided the restaurant into several areas, including a patio, to create more intimate dining and incorporated natural materials such as wood and stone–like a striking Amazonite quartz-topped bar, black brick, glass chandeliers and bonsai trees–to bring the outside in.
Thanks to chef Vincent Lesage, who trained at two different Michelin-starred restaurants in France, the menu puts a French spin on classic steakhouse offerings.
