The California Grill has always been my restaurant of choice when I wanted to celebrate a big event, so I was a bit nervous when they announced a major makeover for the space. But I needn’t have worried. The space is beautiful and the food still wonderful. If anything, I think they were a bit conservative in their vision.

The wood-burning oven is just about the only thing that stayed in place as the kitchen and dining rooms got major makeovers.
