Beach Boulevard in Huntington Beach is full of delicious and interesting eateries from all corners of the globe. Hidden away in a small strip mall just North of the Main Street intersection, you’ll find a contemporary mix of Mediterranean tapas at Black Trumpet Bistro.

The cozy dining area places emphasis on the open kitchen, with counter space available for diners to look on as owner Dino Ferraro cooks up pan roasted duck breast, tiger shrimps with rigatoni, and a selection of shish kebobs. Menu items range from Italian Pizette’s and French Onion Soup, to a traditional Greek salad and Moroccan Lamb Shanks braised in Red Wine Reduction.

The menu is divided into Earth, Land, Sea, Green, Soup, Main, Shish Kebobs, and Sides to ease your selection process. However, there is no need to narrow your favorite choices to a single item as Black Trumpet Bistro specializes in small plates. A few local picks include the tuna tartare, brussel sprouts, garlic truffle fries, Spanakopita, and Mediterranean sliders.
