Famed San Francisco chef-turned-restaurateur Michael Mina opened Stonehill Tavern, his first Southern California restaurant, at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point. This Forbes Travel Guide four-star restaurant was designed by celebrated international designer Tony Chi. The project entailed the demolition and reconstruction of an existing restaurant with several unique design-build features, including:
- Three 13-foot high polished, stainless steel wine racks that house the restaurant's 400-500 bottle selection.
- A contemporary, sophisticated dining room with Italian mosaic tile flooring, a honed marble fireplace, custom pre-cast concrete walls, and hand-blown glass light fixtures.
- A warm and inviting bar, lounge and outdoor terrace.
- A private, fireside dining room for larger groups.
