Playa Provisions is Open!
Set to open in the next few weeks, this full-service seafood restaurant offers views of the rolling sand dunes and skylines. (Alternately, you can take a seat at the bar and enjoy watching the fish housed in the back-bar aquarium.) The interior is clad in cedar planks, giving the open and spacious dining room a rustic feel offset by more laid-back, but elegant features like hand-made pendant lighting over the bar and brass fixtures throughout. If the fresh air is more your speed, curl up in one of the outdoor booths or lounge chairs around the fire pite and enjoy your oysters and cocktails as the sun sets.
Round out your night with a stop at the whiskey bar tucked away in the back of the restaurant. The small space feels like a sleek, but relaxed private room. Curved, wood-clad walls, whiskey barrels that double as bar storage, and a subtle pop of color on the ceiling round out this intimate space. Saddle up to the steel-clad counter top or take your group to the back banquette and let the drinks flow.
Put your order in at the funfetti-style front counter and grab bright green stool at one of the communal tables. The menu you takes you through your early morning pastry (perhaps the biscuit with ducle de leche?) and coffee (or the Mexican hot chocolate if you prefer) to your lunch-time sandwich (roasted chicken & brie is our pick) and salad (quinoa, kale, the sky is the limit ;).
After lunch or well-deserved snack after all the bike-riding, you can load up on hand-crafted ice creams and sweet treats. The horchata-blackberry popsicles can’t be missed, but then again neither can the pistachio waffle-cone sundae!
