opal MENUS


SalmonAt opal restaurant and bar we believe that diners today have experienced so many different cuisines, either traditionally, or as artfully-blended fusions, that they have reached a general level of sophistication we have not seen before. As the diverse cultures of the world have come into ever-greater contact with each other, it has fueled an unparalleled explosion of culinary creativity.

Our chefs have mastered new and innovative techniques, embraced the exciting influx of formerly unavailable ingredients from around the world, and applied their classically-trained sensibilities to working with this new, vastly expanded palette of possibilities.

PaellaOut of this rich array of choices, our chefs create an Eclectic California Cuisine with the freshest of ingredients and creative influences from around the World: Spanish, French, Italian, Pacific Rim, Mexican, Caribbean, Indian, Asian, and contemporary American. Items on our menu range from a Chile-Crusted Filet Mignon, to Fresh Grilled Fish and Seafood, Homemade Pastas and Gourmet Pizzas from our wood burning pizza oven, fresh baked Breads, deliciously imaginative Salads and Homemade Desserts. Our regular menus offer proven local’s favorites, while our daily specials showcase our chef’s innovative talents, introducing new and exciting additions to our menu, many of which prove to be such instant hits that they find quickly find their way onto the regular menu.

In our experience, diners today are whole heartedly embracing this trend towards diversity, and thus our menu reflects a variety of influences in such a way that no matter what you are in the mood for, our aim is to make sure you find it on our menu.
