Opening side-by-side in Oceanside this May are two Hyatt hotels that will bring six new food options, from a rooftop bar to a dessert lounge, into the coastal city. The oceanfront Mission Pacific Hotel, a JdV by Hyatt hotel has already made news as the site of acclaimed Valle de Guadalupe chef Roberto Alcocer’s first stateside restaurant. Calling it Valle, a Guadalupe Valley Kitchen, Alcocer has Michelin-star ambitions for the restaurant that will reflect his Baja wine country tasting menu from Malva Cocina de Baja California and ingredients from the Southern California.
Alcocer is also creating the menu for Oceanside’s first rooftop bar, located atop the 161-room hotel. The Rooftop at Mission Pacific will serve Baja street food, from tacos to ceviche, along with a lineup of beers from the booming Baja brewery scene.
For Mission Pacific’s other two eateries, the hotel has partnered with Tara Lazar of F10 Creative, the hospitality group behind popular Palm Springs hangouts like Cheeky’s, Mr. Lyons, and Seymour’s. Lazar is behind High/Low, a casual daytime cafe located in the lobby and a vintage-inspired dessert lounge built inside the historic Graves House, which has been restored and moved onto the property. It’s named Charlie’s, after the character Charlotte “Charlie” Blackwood in “Top Gun” movie, whose home in the film is the 140-year old landmark.
Next door at The Seabird Resort, a Destination by Hyatt hotel, executive chef Kurtis Habecker (Park Hyatt Aviara) is heading up the 226-room beachfront property’s culinary outlets. There’s Piper, an all-day restaurant serving California cuisine that will centered around a pasta bar and The Shore Room, a sunset view lounge and cocktail bar located inside the lobby.
