83. Broccolini at SeaSalt WoodFire Grill

Behold the beginning of our 100 Favorite Dishes of 2016 listicle! Every day through the publication of our Best Of 2016 issue (and sometimes, twice a day), we’ll be bringing you our favorite dishes across Orange County, leading up to the best in the land. Enjoy!

At SeaSalt, former Weekling Alicia Whitney’s follow-up to her highly successful SeaLegs Wine Bar, you want everything that’s been licked by the leaping flames of the open-pit fire. They’re fueled by logs from native California red oak—the thing that defines Santa Maria BBQ.

You want it all: the pork chops, the multitude of steaks, even the veggies such as the grilled cauliflower, which is singed black after being roasted over the flames, its smokiness permeating down to the stem.

But perhaps even better than that are the grilled broccolini, which absorbs so much of the smoke you’ll smell it coming out of your nostrils as you chomp on each tender-crisp stalk, and then for a few hours afterward. When it comes to traditional Santa Maria-style BBQ, it turns out that not only is smoke as essential a seasoning as salt to the meat, but also the vegetables.
