A Menu as Well-Traveled as Our Guests
Fresh Ingredients and a Progressive Menu
The restaurant will offer a new a global-fusion menu that highlights tapas-style small plates, Mediterranean flavors and seafood from around the world. It works because San Diego is one of only four places in the world with an ideal Mediterranean climate. Our chefs can search for the perfect ingredients right in the surrounding region, and often, literally in our own backyard. Our 3,800 square foot garden provides Mistral with fresh ingredients like basil, artichokes, strawberries, rosemary, lavender, broccoli and thyme. Herbs are picked each day, and used to prepare that evening's menu. Our chefs sustain the garden using produce trimmings to create a compost heap which is turned into fertilizer for our herb, rose and citrus gardens.

About our wine list
The wine list is constructed in tandem with the menu, creating the same sense of delight and discovery in selecting a wine to enjoy with dinner. The list has its classic choices that will always compliment Chef Adam’s food classics like Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet or Chateau Rauzan-Segla Grand Cru Classe Margaux. The list also respects California traditions with choices such as Kistler Chardonnay, Robert Sinskey Merlot, and Frog's Leap Sauvignon Blanc. For those with an adventurous nature, Mistral's wine list has a wide variety of treasures interesting new varietals at reasonable prices. Sfortzatos and Gattinaras from Northern Italy vie for attention with Albarinos and Riojas from Spain. Emerging varietals from South America like Malbec and Carmenere share the list with gifts from the Loire and the Rhone.
At Loews Coronado Bay Resort, we believe fine dining is not just for grown-ups, so we have a special menu just for kids. That's just one reason why we were named one of the best resorts for families by Parents and Travel + Leisure magazines. Delicious food and a lesson in the importance of supporting farmers and saving the environment coalesce in our Adopt-a-Tomato interactive dinner menu at our San Diego restaurant. At the end of the meal, kids receive complimentary tomato seeds to grow in their own gardens when they get home.
