“Sustainability is one of those words that isn’t clearly deﬁned and can mean different things to different people. To us, it means that product is handled carefully and with respect to the supply. We tour aquaculture facilities and meet face-to-face with fishermen to ensure the fish we serve is acquired in a way that takes the well-being of our oceans into consideration. Seafood is so delicate that we can tell, based on the condition we receive it in, if it’d been handled well.” –Purchasing Manager of King’s Seafood Distribution, Michael King
hen you arrive at Water Grill, you can’t help but notice the reclaimed locally sourced wood and authentic nautical components sprinkled throughout the restaurant. The nearly 18,000 square-foot space features design elements reminiscent of a refurbished ship, and not one detail is overlooked. The handmade oyster shell chandelier located over the central copper-top bar is definitely worth a double take, and a selfie (@watergrill).
“… the fine dining experience you dream about with exceptional care and respect that starts in the ocean and carries all the way back to your table.”
On top of a stunning dining setting, indulgent items like Wild Spanish Octopus, Wild Columbia River King Salmon, and Wild Ross Sea Chilean Sea Bass grace the menu at this Orange County hot spot, affirming that this menu showcases the pinnacle of freshness for local seafood. But that’s not all; you aren’t limited to just the menu when it comes to making a decision on what to order. Feel free to take a look at the three massive water tanks built to mimic real aquatic environments that house Wild Barents Sea Red King Crab, Washington State Dungeness Crab, Santa Barbara Spot Prawns and local Spiny Lobster. Blown away? Honestly, we’d expect nothing less from the restauranteurs of King’s Seafood Company with 20 restaurants under its belt, along with a 70-year legacy of restaurant and hospitality experience.
