Maru Restaurant - Valencia
Tucked away midblock on Towncenter Drive in Valencia, Maru's soft muted lights twinkle, a beacon in a sea of suburban chain restaurants. Once you enter, you immediately feel at ease with Maru's welcoming ambience of relaxed elegance. But, the best is yet to come.
As you glance over the menu, your attention is immediately drawn to the diversity of offerings from filet mignon to creamy scallop risotto, to sushi, as well as the very detailed tasting menus and Omakase (a more involved Japanese tasting menu that follows a certain progression with its courses) that Owner/Chef Jason Park so adroitly creates. With seasonally inspired menus that hold to the highest levels of freshness and quality, and a commitment to using organic and free-range artisanal products as well as using sushi grade fish flown in fresh from Japan, Jason Park has consistently proven that he will settle for nothing but the best. His carefully thought-out sake and wine list, with its food friendly, approachable wines, offers savvy selections from California and France (many of them highly allocated), every one specifically chosen to pair with Park's cuisine. In fact, for the ultimate dining experience, diners in "the know" allow Chef Park to pair wine or sake to accompany his tasting menus.
Jason Park is a man with a genuine passion for the cuisine he creates. Following a working internship at Ka Gai Ro, a Kaiseki restaurant in Osaka, Jason fine-tuned his skills at various fine dining restaurants in Los Angeles. Self-taught as well as professionally trained, Chef Park gives his full attention to even the smallest detail, and his highly personal focus clearly defines Maru's perfect integration of cuisine, wine, ambience and service to create a memorable experience in fine dining.
