Hollywood producer McG and restaurateur Jordan Otterbein, River Jetty Restaurant Group partners known for acclaimed A Restaurant and A Market in Newport Beach, California, debuted their new Corona del Mar dining concept, CdM in early March. It’s dinner nightly and is already, consistently, a tough reservation. Corporate Executive Chef Jonathan Blackford’s creative American menu highlights unique, hand selected ingredients in each of his flavorful dishes, drawing influence from America’s melting pot of cuisines.
Think house-baked Parker House Rolls with beurre de baratte and Roasted Lamb Ribs with garam masala, Greek yogurt and cucumber salad.
We spirit Chef Jonathan out of his busy kitchen for an update.
