The latest addition to the restaurant scene around the Segerstrom Center for the Arts is the harmoniously named Silver Trumpet. Located in the Wyndham Orange County Hotel, the restaurant faces onto a small man-made lake surrounded by a huge courtyard, replete with grassy lawns, tall palms and abundant foliage.
Who knew? The charming patio is a lovely spot for dining on a warm evening.
Beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows framed in shining stainless steel dramatically open up the interior space. Gorgeous eco-friendly bamboo floors, a trumpet assemblage on the entry wall, black-and-white photos of musicians and display cases of musical instruments complete the themed décor.
The newly refurbished room is now the home of Chef Robert Bierbirch's modern seasonal California cuisine, which seems to mean, in addition to seasonal and local, lighter and healthier. He also believes in using sustainable, organic produce from their "symphony of local farmers," so the menu changes frequently.
