Since 1950, stunning water views have sparkled at Westlake dining destination, Canlis. Brothers Mark and Brian Canlis have kept their grandfather’s legacy alive in this striking midcentury modern home perched on the edge of a hill. This is destination dining doled out in three-, four- or eight-course tasting menus paired with an award-winning 18,000 bottle wine list. Former chef Jason Franey coined the term “comfort geek” to describe house favorites like the Canlis salad, tossed table side, or Muscovy duck for two, dry-aged for 14 days.
