Charlie’s in Malibu put a new executive chef, David Linville, in the kitchen in October and he’s just released a brand new menu to go with the restaurant’s revitalized wine program. Linville, a NorCal expat, got his chops straight in many local hotel dining rooms like The Standard Hollywood, The Viceroy, St. Regis, Marina del Rey’s Ritz, and at Mastro’s. The new menu showcases the seafood Linville is obsessed with, as well as pizzas, numerous chops, and pasta plates. There’s a grilled ostrich tenderloin in port reduction, French bone-in short ribs, saltwater prawns, Australian lobster tail, Kurabuto pork cheeks, free range veal Delmonico, and Bolognese with a slow braised ground beef, veal, and pork ragu among the choices. The wine has been curated by consultant Caitlin Stansbury, who tailored 150 vintages to the menu. See Charlie’s new dishes below.
