Market, Del Mar
Market Restaurant + Bar showcases the Asian-inspired California cuisine of renowned chef Carl Schroeder. Decorated in shades of persimmon, the dining room contains brown-leather banquettes, large drum pendant lights, and a 12-foot central tasting table. The menu incorporates fresh ingredients from nearby farms, with options like miso-marinated black cod in curried carrot broth, and Cabernet-braised prime beef short ribs with a caramelized onion—tomato tart and potato purée. The restaurant also serves a separate sushi menu, an eclectic wine list emphasizing small-batch vintages, and handcrafted cocktails like the Spiced Pear, made with local pears, fresh citrus, and house-infused pear-cinnamon vodka.
