Inspiration

CdM Restaurant was founded by two Corona del Mar High School alums, Hollywood producer McG and restaurateur Jordan Otterbein. The duo, River Jetty Restaurant Group partners known for acclaimed A Restaurant and A Market in Newport Beach, California, opened CdM on March 9, 2019.

McG grew up in the arts, has built a career in music, film and television and along the way, has frequented and fallen in love with the Soho House “member’s club” concepts around the globe.

Inspired by the concept, he, along with the expertise of Otterbein, set out to create a restaurant with an elevated yet approachable environment that is visually creative and art driven while providing the highest quality of chef-inspired cuisine courtesy of their talented Corporate Executive Chef Alfonso Ramirez.

With CdM, McG and Jordan strive to build an establishment that is deeply rooted in the community where all can come to enjoy incredible food and drink with friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family every day of the week—no membership required.
