Chef Adrian Hernandez continues to offer tastes from the California coast with fresh new items for lunch and dinner. His new living herb garden, planted as part of the Irvine Spectrum hotel's sustainable food initiative, will supply fresh herbs, mint, thyme and more for the new food items and cocktails at one of the premier restaurants in Irvine, CA.

Some of FLOE's new summer menu items include produce arriving fresh from Irvine's Tanaka Farms. Dishes include the wildflower honey-glazed salmon with arugula and charred corn and the grilled cauliflower steak with corn polenta, vegetables and black bean salsa.

Already popular menu items at the Irvine restaurant include shareable Ahi tacos, Baja-style shrimp lettuce wraps and lime salt tortilla chips. Mouth-watering entrees start with the Harris Ranch skirt steak with roasted beets, roasted chicken with Yukon gold smashed potatoes and a grilled filet with carrots and mashed potatoes.

Desserts include Johnson's heritage cheesecake with local berries, bread pudding churros, chocolate cake and a chocolate chip ice cream sandwich.

Adults will love the restyled lounge's signature cocktails concocted by prompt and friendly bartenders. The Smoky Margarita has Mina Real Mescal, mango and Chile pepper, while the Really Dark, Extra Stormy has Gosling's extra dark rum and Fever Tree ginger beer. Other options include the Crop Vodka Martini with fresh cucumber and the Skinny Acai Cosmo with Veev Acai Liqueur, triple sec, cranberry and fresh lime juice.

Taking a cue from the restaurant's name, the entire floor plan of the hip and modern FLOE has been designed to offer new experiences for different expectations. Taking advantage of Southern California's beautiful weather, the lounge has an outdoor patio with a relaxed seating area. By day, table tennis, a custom Foosball table and a 70-inch television provide entertainment. At night, the patio comes to life with LED lighting and "dive-in" movies by the renovated pool.

The interior booths at FLOE include moveable, flexible seating and tables that can combine to serve the needs of business meetings or intimate gatherings. The European-style pub bar area has community tables and games that offer a sense of camaraderie.

Indoor dining also has the same open, flexible feel. Local art enhances a modern seaside setting. From quiet alcoves for productive business dinners to larger tables, the decor and surroundings add to the dining experience.

As well as the spaces in the FLOE Lounge, the activities that make the Irvine restaurant an inviting place to dine include wine tastings and live music. Guests can enjoy wine pours of 3, 6 or 9 ounces. The state-of-the-art WineStation allows guests to sample a variety of the world's best wines by the glass.

The Irvine restaurant is also proud to feature up-and-coming musical guests each Tuesday and Thursday evening. A relaxed happy hour from 5 to 6 p.m. features half-off the Quick Bites menu as well as cocktail specials. Complimentary three-hour valet parking with Lounge validation makes finding a place to put the car quick and easy.

To celebrate Hernandez's new summer menu, the Irvine Spectrum hotel invites guests to experience the reimagined FLOE Lounge with a deal that includes deluxe accommodations from $109 per night plus complimentary breakfast for up to two adults and children 12 years old and under. The Breakfast Is On Us Package is valid Friday through Sunday from now through Aug. 18, 2014. Guests should use promotional code S4B when booking reservations online or by calling 1-800-228-9290.
