NEW CHEF: Delicias taps Steve Molina

With the departure of Paul McCabe to La Valencia, Delicias promotes from within


Published:

Paul McCabe was supposed to take Delicias to a whole new level, then replicate the concept throughout SD. He undoubtedly whole-new-leveled the food at the Rancho Santa Fe classic, but a promised full-scale renovation and expansion never materialized (a light reno was done, but no overhaul). McCabe announced a few weeks back that he was leaving to take over the renovating La Valencia. Now Delicias has tapped his second-in-charge Steve Molina as new chef de cuisine. They're keeping a McCabe insta-classic (that lobster agnolotti in browned butter), but Molina's crafted his own menu. A few sample dishes:

Baked Fusilli Mac N Cheese w/ charred broccoli, goat cheese, leeks, pancetta and herbed bread crumbs

Braised Short Rib w/ carrots, turnips, baby celery, and cheddar mashed potatoes

Smoked Salmon Flatbread w/ dill crème fraiche, red onion, capers and caviar

Prime New York w/ roasted root vegetables, baby potatoes and a smoked tomato reduction.
