Savoy serves up California Modern cuisine with a European flair in Costa Mesa, CA

Don and Deedee Sodaro (also known for Sodaro Estate Winery in Napa, CA) took over the reins of this hotel property in 2010 and reopened as The Hotel Hanford. On July 24, 2011, under the culinary guidance of Chef David Fune, the Savoy Restaurant opened its doors to mesmerize guests and residents of Orange County. Chef David has a long career in the hotel food & beverage business from his days at the famed Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego and also rebranding Pechanga Resort & Casino’s culinary experience in Temecula. Using seasonal, local, fresh produce, Chef David now dazzles the palates of local foodies and travelers passing through Orange County.

Burrata-Citrus ‘Caprese’ is local citrus, lemon-pepper pearls, fennel sand, and citrus infused olive oil. This amuse bouche was creamy, tangy, and balanced. The bright, sweet oranges tamed the slight bitterness of the grapefruit for a beautiful finish. Beautiful presentation and perfectly executed! Thumbs up, way up!
