As you may have already heard, the St. Regis Monarch Beach is on the verge of being auctioned off in a foreclosure sale. LA Times had the scoop.
The ritzy hotel, as many have noted, is infamous for hosting a certain AIG boondoggle. You know the one: The bash they held after accepting government bailout money?
But the whispers in food circles is how this affects Michael Mina's Stonehill Tavern
, which is set inside the belly of the resort and is the poshest of its posh restaurants. Well, I called today, just to check in, and the chipper lady who answered couldn't have been more accommodating, but with nothing new to report.
"As far as I know, it's business as usual", she said.
So there you go AIG, come on down.
