Santa Maria-Inspired Steakhouse to Open January 2016

SeaSalt Woodfire Grill, an innovative steak house and weekend breakfast eatery featuring the “farm-to-fire” tastes of Santa Maria-style barbecue, is set to open in January 2016 in Huntington Beach. Created by award-winning SeaLegs Wine Bar Owner Alicia Whitney and her team, SeaSalt Woodfire Grill is designed to make clients feel like they’re dining in a rustic farmhouse from another era. Chef Alexander Dale leads the menu, based on the infusion of house-made flavored sea salts, pepper and other simple seasonings, for diners to experience the natural flavors of selected meats, such as bone-in ribeye steaks, tri-tip and lamb chops. Skilled pitmasters will grill meat over an open fire to capture the seared-in smoke flavor from red oak wood. The meat dishes can be paired with wines from the Santa Maria region, Orange County-based craft beers and craft cocktails with house-made savory and sweet sea salts.
