Onotria Wine Country Cuisine

2831 Bristol St. Costa Mesa, CA 92626 | Costa Mesa | 714-641-5952

Location Description:

With a menu as beautiful as chef Massimo's creation for Onotria, it's best to go "soup to nuts"-which means trying every course from appetizer to dessert. Maybe start with some creamy lobster and market fish chowder, then some steamed asparagus with barrel-aged Cheddar and black-truffle sauce. Next, perhaps a mallard duck breast with fresh herbs and a Santa Rosa plum sauce. And you should probably end with the poached pear in Barolo wine with vanilla-mascarpone creme. A meal like this would cost about $60, and that's not including wine-Onotria touts itself as "wine country cuisine" and lays claim to a jaw-dropping selection-but that's why someone else is paying, right?
