California. Cal, short for California, and Mare, “sea” in Italian, Cal Mare evokes the vibrant seaside elegance of Italy’s Amalfi Coast with a nod to contemporary Southern California living. Referencing Chef Adam Sorbel’s travels with his grandmother, the brick vaults and sun-bleached plaster allude to classic Italian architecture while cascades of bougainvillea and clusters of olive trees are synonymous with both regions. Layers of marble mosaics and glazed tile in varying shades of blue and green add a touch of whimsy to the space, emphasizing the connection to the sea.
