One of the few locations in the United States for this high-end hot pot restaurant that hails from Beijing, but specializes in Sichuan-style hot pots from the Chinese municipality of Chongqing, it's arguably the best place to eat stews in the city. Culinary Director Quinnton Austin's eponymous restaurant, the Q&A Restaurant & Oyster Bar, is part of The Brick Hotel in Oceanside.

The Brick Hotel's culinary director Anthony Wells is a semifinalist for the James Beard Awards and his restaurant offers homemade pasta dipped in sauces cooked over low heat as well as larger plates and a trio of calzones.
