Spark was selected by Bon Appetit Magazine as one of the "Best Neighborhood Restaurants" in the country and is Zagat rated as a "distinctive" restaurant.
The Spark concept was built around Woodfire cooking (hence the name) but more specifically three unique pieces of specialty cooking equipment: an Italian Open hearth oven, a sicilian rotisserie and a mesquite-fired grill. This equipment is fired only by wood or mesquite charcoal. There is no gas or electricity at all. By cooking with wood, the flavors of the meats and fish are allowed to come through accompanied by a light wood scent, not a heavily fuel or barbeque taste. In addition to the cooking technique, Spark's cuisine is complimented by our exclusive use of only the finest "Prime" or "Certified Angus Beef" primarlily from Newport Meats, widely considered to be the premier distributor of top quality steaks and meats in Southern California.
