Cast & Plow

[Marina del Rey]

Add a comment

It doesn’t get much more picturesque than the marina-adjacent fire pit tables at Cast & Plow, the Ritz-Carlton’s new iteration of its hotel restaurant. The loosely surf-and-turf menu reads as though it’s targeting the steak-and-salmon set, but some smart details keep things from getting boring. That steak is a rib eye, aged 32 days and smoked, which does wonders for the flavor though not so much for the texture. The salmon sits in a broth made from salty ham hocks alongside plump beluga lentils. Health seems to be a sly undercurrent—kale chips dot almost every table, and simple carbs are  few and far between.  But then again, one can finish off a meal with a gooey brown sugar and Medjool date cake. » 4375 Admiralty Way, 310-574-4333.
