Transform Your Existing DOORS From Ordinary to

Extraordinary!

{ AFTER }

February 2018 • VOL. 12 • ISSUE 2

I’ve had the pleasure of living in the coastal communities of Dana Point and San Clemente for the past 20 years. Raising a family, starting a business and forging relationships in this close-knit slice of paradise is not something I take for granted. I'm constantly reinvigorated as I drive through Dana Point, seeing the transformation of the Lantern District, the construction of new homes and businesses, and the general vibrancy of the city. With the $200 million Dana Point Harbor Revitalization Plan approval, the City is poised to become a destination that both residents and visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy for many years to come. February’s cover features entrepreneur and restaurateur Damian Collins and his team at Waterman’s Harbor. Damian has been a key contributor to the City's growth with the success of his three local restaurants. Over 10 years ago, he started his first venture with Sunset's Bar & Grill in Capistrano Beach. He then renovated an historic landmark into what is now the Prohibition-era themed StillWater on Del Prado. Our cover captures Collins and crew on the deck of the remodeled upstairs lounge at Waterman's Harbor, which recently celebrated its 3rd anniversary. Learn more about Damian on page 10 and check out the centerfold calendar for special events and promotions at his restaurants and throughout south Orange County. Thanks for reading The Local DISH Magazine! —Matthew Vicelja

WATERMAN'S HARBOR

DINNER. DRINKS. DANA POINT. SUNSETS BAR & GRILL • STILLWATER • WATERMAN'S HARBOR BY VERONICA BADZEY

When Damian Collins opened Sunsets Bar and Grill ten years ago, he was looking to fill a void in the Dana Point restaurant scene. With breathtaking views of the Pacific, it’s become a popular local hangout known for its upscale, yet unpretentious atmosphere, award-winning cocktails, and delicious Hawaiian cuisine. “I started Sunsets because I wanted a local spot where I could feel comfortable hanging out with friends and having a great drink,” he relates. “My goal has always been to bring things to the community that I was really passionate about, and that we didn’t have.” In 2012, Damian built on his success by opening StillWater in the Dana Point Lantern District, followed a few years later by Waterman’s Harbor in the Dana Point Harbor. Though each restaurant features its own unique menu, ambience, and entertainment, they all share a commitment to excellent food, exemplary customer service, and support for the local community. “We’re always looking to improve,” says Frank Perreira, Director of Operations for all three restaurants, “which is why we’ve made a real effort to elevate the food and enhance our customers’ experience in every way we can.”

Sunsets Bar and Grill & GRILL SUNSETS BAR Sunsets Bar and Grill got a boost last year with a new chef and revamped Hawaiian-themed menu that features popular items such as Bacon Bombs, Kahlua Pork Sliders, and Seared Ahi Tacos. In addition to a tantalizing array of cocktails like the Pineapple Margarita, Pono, and Mango Whiskey Sour, it also offers a full range of quality draft beer and wine. Sunsets showcases live music three nights a week, along with Happy Hour specials (all day on Wednesdays), and an incredible ocean view with its location on Pacific Coast Highway, directly across the street from Doheny State Beach. StillWater STILLWATER Approaching its 5-year anniversary, StillWater evokes a pre-prohibition vibe that honors its status as a local historic site, and the first building to be constructed in the City of Dana Point. Chef Steve Kling has created a tempting menu of classic American fare, utilizing sustainable, locally-sourced produce, meat, and fish, augmented by the restaurant’s new Farm to Table garden. The bar offers an impressive selection of 54 foreign and domestic beers on

Named “Seafood Restaurant of the Year” in 2016 by the Orange County Register, and winner of the prestigious “Golden Foodie Award” for Seafood in 2016, Waterman’s Harbor has already earned a solid reputation for delivering excellent cuisine created from locally-sourced, sustainable seafood. Having recently acquired a seafood processing license, it has the ability to serve fish purchased directly from local harbor fisherman, which translates into the freshest offerings possible – like the Baja Taco Style Shrimp and Macadamia Crusted Sea Bass. If lobster’s your weakness, then you won’t be able to resist the 3-course Maine Lobster meal on Thursdays for a mere $29.95. Waterman’s newly-designed upstairs lounge offers guests a relaxing and comfy spot from which to enjoy gorgeous views of Dana Point Harbor while sipping on their favorite drinks. The exclusive bar menu with generous half-off Happy Hour specials on delectable appetizers, beer, wine, and cocktails is a compelling excuse to gather with friends and co-workers at the end of the day. Be sure to drop in for the family-friendly, all-you-can-eat, $20 Sunday Brunch Buffet, featuring an omelet bar, $10 bottomless Mimosas, and plenty of treats for the kids, which can be enjoyed anywhere in the restaurant, including the open-air patio with expansive views of the water. Be sure to make your reservation at Waterman's Harbor during Orange County Restaurant Week, taking place March 4 to 10. Specially created two-course lunch and three-course dinner menus, including complimentary cocktail, are offered at $15 and $30, respectively. “Our hope is that as we focus on the food and keep improving,” enthuses Damian, “we’ll bring more good restaurants into town. We want to create a synergy that everyone in Dana Point can enjoy.”

FOOD & FUN

INKA MAMA'S AUTHENTIC PERUVIAN CUISINE BY DINA SCAGLIONE

If bold and exotic flavors are something you crave, look no further than Inka Mama's in San Clemente. Beyond your typical Orange County fare, the restaurant’s abundant menu features influences from Asia and Spain with one-of-a-kind exotic dishes. Explore new and exciting finds without having to pack a bag and catch a flight. Founded in 2001 by sisters Angela Kisijara and Martha White, Inka Mama's has become a local favorite. It’s an ideal dining destination for those seeking a bit of a culinary adventure and a taste for authentic Peruvian dishes flavored with aromatic cilantro, citrus-y lime and spicy peppers. Inka Mama’s diverse menu and warm atmosphere instantly transports you to South America without ever crossing the border. Once inside, you’ll be struck by the unobtrusive charm of the restaurant's Latin-Asian fusion ambiance. I looked forward to the arrival of a small jar, filled with my favorite bright green sauce called Aji — the traditional Peruvian staple made with pureed serrano peppers, romaine lettuce and cilantro. It’s a delicious drizzle over your main entrée or as a to-die-for dip with soft bread. For starters, try Inka Mama’s ceviche, made with fresh seabass, marinated in a spicy chile-lime juice with sliced onions and chopped cilantro. Another flavorful and unique appetizer is the Papa a la Huancaina, a large egg-size fried yucca filled with spicy yellow chile ricotta cheese sauce. Looking for something to beat the winter chill? Then, you must try the comforting Aquadito de Pollo chicken soup, made with cilantro, rice, vegetables and potatoes. It will warm you from your nose to your toes. Inka Mama’s is known for its Saltado, a Peruvian stir fry made with sautéed vegetables, potatoes, onions, peppers, spices and served with rice. Whether you prefer vegetarian, chicken, seasoned top sirloin or rib-eye steak, the savory spices and harmonious flavors will make your taste buds sing. Inka Mama’s has 3 other locations in Foothill Ranch, Aliso Viejo and Santa Ana. Stop by for daily Happy Hour, Monday through Saturday from 4 to 7 p.m. and all day on Sundays. On Mondays, kids eat free with the purchase of a regular priced entrée and adults will enjoy half-price bottles of select wine. Wednesday Nights serve up $5 draft beers all night.
