Albaca dining venue opens at Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa

The Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa in Coronado, Calif., has opened Albaca, a new bayside dining venue.

Helmed by executive chef Rafael Corniel and restaurant chef Aaron Obregon, the restaurant combines the names “Alta” (Al), “Baja” (Ba), and “California” (Ca) to form the word “Albaca”. The name is derived from when the Californias were one, and designated as Alta and Baja. The new concept celebrates Latin, Baja, and California flavors.

The hotel used streetsense, a company out of Chicago, for the hotel’s redesign and the opening of Albaca.
