Located in the building that once housed the popular eatery Beebs, this Orange County restaurant offers an ever-changing lineup of New American fare. The chef creates the menu — and tweaks existing favorites — based on whatever fresh, local ingredients are at the market that day. Some of the more inventive dishes include pan-seared jalapeño cheddar bread with mushrooms, truffle butter, and an egg; as well as the pea pancake with roasted mushrooms, butter sauce, and fresh herbs.
