A perfect spring break for grown-ups— what would that look like? It would have beautiful scenery, plenty to do, incredible food, adult beverages of course, and views that wash away the everyday stresses. Well, one place that springs to mind is under the warm sunshine of Southern California at Los Angeles' coastal gateway, The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey. While connecting the tranquil Pacific with the energetic city, the resort is L.A.’s only AAA Five Diamond waterfront luxury hotel and it is just right for a quick spring getaway…
While soaking up this decadent resort, guests will be treated to a brilliant culinary experience that is the newest capstone to this Cali locale; dining at the new Cast & Plow restaurant, guests will enjoy the contemporary interior which also showcases panoramic views of the marina, while adoring the community-made, locally sustainable cuisine. The concept is uniquely inspired by Southern California’s small plate communal dining experience and its menu of familiar and international dishes is set apart by an approachable style of artisan cooking. An array of signature dishes such as the delicate herb brioche served with organic butter and truffle salt, all natural house-smoked rib eye and homemade ice cream made daily will be setting the standard for what vacay food is all about.
With an on-property herb garden and hand-picked ingredients from local farmers markets and from many regional farms, Cast & Plow offers a fresh, international perspective on farm-to-table dining. It truly is the perfect beginning or end to a leisurely day by L.A.’s only waterfront pool (featuring an eco-friendly water purification system), playing tennis or shopping in the 90210.
Of course no stay at The Ritz would be complete without mentioning the exquisite accommodations and service—no other resort family will make you feel more at “home” while being incredibly pampered on your getaway. Sounds like a pretty good grown-up spring break to me!
