Chef Scott Cater on contemporizing his already-popular menu
Downtown Capitola’s Paradise Beach Grille has quite a bit going for it. There’s the ocean view from their patio, the vast selection of California wines, and let’s not forget the food. The focus is on seafood, with a style that’s a mixture of American, Hawaiian and fusion. The restaurant opened in 1998, and executive chef Scott Cater has been running the kitchen since June 2011. We talked with him about their diverse menu and the subtle changes he’s implemented since taking over.
About Paradisee Beach Grille
Paradise maximizes the beautiful beach location on Monterey Bay with an outdoor patio, views of the historic Venetian condominiums and the ocean. This combination is reminiscent of a Portofino environment in Italy. We also feature an outdoor fireplace perfect for that cozy dinner or wine tasting. We have high top tables in the bar area for drinks or dining as well as an attractive and spacious dining room. Customers enjoy the various casual venues yet an upscale flair with quality food, beverage and service.
