OC Restaurant Week has begun! It's only for 7 days, March 4th-10th.
Ever since moving back down to Orange County from Los Angeles about 6 years ago, the OC has really stepped up its food game. With Top Chefs like Amar Santana, LA transplants like Sushi Roku, and innovative restaurant concepts like Playground, there's a lot to satisfy your foodie soul.
Here's where to eat over the course of the next 7 days, from 3-course Lunches to Dinners priced at $20-$40 per person.
Starfish, Laguna Beach – 3-course $20 Lunch or $40 Dinner
- the best part is the unconventional soft pillowey bun, Banh Mi Sliders with seasoned Beef, traditional Pickled Vegetables & Sriracha Aioli
Puesto, Irvine – 3-course $15 Lunch or $40 Dinner
- perfection, Filet Mignon Taco with crispy melted Cheese, Avocado & spicy Pistachio Serrano (pictured left)
Tanners at Pasea Hotel, Huntington Beach – 4-course $40 Dinner
- a flavor profile that satisfies all 4 tastes, Roasted Salmon with Pistachio-Red Curry Crust, Fennel-Citrus Slaw, Avocado Butter & Coconut Forbidden Rice
Stay tuned for my full review of Puesto and Bon Appetit!
