KITCHEN 1540, our signature restaurant, highlights the feel and flavors of our Southern Califonia roots. The seamless flow from the bar to the dining room and outdoor patio spaces offer guests the perfect mix of experiences.

KITCHEN 1540's cuisine highlights locally-sourced ingredients that capture bright, seasonal tastes of Southern California.  Served amongst an open presentation kitchen and contemporary table settings, Executive Chef Nathan Lingle prepares a menu that will capitivate and delight you.

A private dining room wrapped in wine-encased walls is the ideal setting for a special event, or choose the romance of an outdoor private cabana and enjoy the lights, the stars and the ocean breezes.
