The Ocean Grill: Back and Better than ever

October 8, 2014 by Hannah No Comment

Located a stones throw from the sand, Avila’s own Ocean Grill has been recently been revitalized with a new chef, new amenities, a new menu, new specials, and new life.

After testing out different service styles and types of food to find their perfect fit, the Ocean Grill finally hit its stride with the oncoming of chef Spencer Johnston.

Johnston, who comes from Full of Life Flatbread and Granada, has added such a zest to the Ocean Grill that he has allowed the restaurant to find its true identity, grow as an organization, and make dreams become a reality.

Johnston’s menu for the Ocean Grill is practically a work of art, as it infused with the fresh flavors of local produce. Handpicking only food and wines from the fields of SLO County, its no surprise that the Ocean Grill is also making an effort to cherish the sea that it overlooks—as all seafood is too chosen from only the local area.

Due to its perfect combination of culinary finesse and local essence, Johnston’s menu is overflowing with mouthwatering delights. Notable dishes include: the Watermelon and Strawberry Salad, Local Rockfish Al Ajillo Tacos, Calamari Steak Bahn Mi, Seared Diver Scallops and Pork Belly, 16 oz Grilled Pork Shoulder Steak, and the Salumiere Wood Fired Pizza, to name a few.

Johnston’s entrance is also accompanied by a plethora of new features and additions to the restaurant that have allowed the Ocean Grill to not just grow, but truly flourish into a centerpiece of the local Avila Community.

The Ocean Grill has updated itself in an array of areas to best serve the community; they are now open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner and offering a happy hour from 3pm-5pm, which includes $4 draft beers, $6 glasses of wine, $10 flatbread pizzas. They’ve also freshened up their interior decorating, with new additions that include a 400 bottle wine wall, a LED backlit glowing honey onyx bar top, a 60″ flat screen TV with live video streaming of the beach across from restaurant, a Solar panel roof making them one of the most energy efficient restaurant in the county
