NINE-TEN Restaurant & Bar offers the perfect combination of sophistication and casual elegance. Led by award-winning Chef Jason Knibb, Sous Chef Rocio Siso Gurriaran, and Pastry Chef Jose Alonzo III, our Evolving California Cuisine – emphasizing a farm-to-table philosophy – features the best of the harvest from local artisan farmers where produce is selected daily for the restaurant’s seasonal menus.
At NINE-TEN, guests will enjoy the unique seasonal style of cooking, with menus dictated by the local harvest. The menu is created daily to take advantage of fresh products discovered during daily excursions to local artisan providers including the acclaimed Chino Farms. The bounty of the sea is also featured with local fish selections and items arriving daily from Hawaii and the North Pacific and Atlantic regions.
A casually elegant, contemporary restaurant with al fresco dining on the sidewalk patio, where people watching becomes a pastime, or the terrace with peek ocean views. Inside the narrow, high-ceiling dining room, the warm ambiance is enhanced with a refreshing color scheme with infusions of emerald green and light wood. The restaurant’s main focal point is the vibrant and locally-inspired ocean and fauna wall panorama created by acclaimed artist, Dana Montlack. The service is enthusiastic and spirited, while gracious and unassuming. The staff is exceptionally well trained and educated on the food and preparation methods, as well as wine selections and pairings.
Special prix fixe menus are available and feature matching wines from the extensive wine cellar.
