Restaurants

  • Pinot Provence

    Pinot Provence

    Unlike other posh joints, where the idea of comfort is to make average folks feel uncomfortable, Pinot is nothing but inviting. The French-Californian cuisine and atmosphere manage to be classy without being stuffy, and the roasted-lamb noisette... More on Pinot Provence »

  • Zov's Cafe Bakery & Bar

    Zov's Cafe Bakery & Bar

    It may be in another one of those stultifyingly dull neighborhood centers, where everything looks like everything else, but leave it to James Beard Award-winner Zov Karamardian to shake up the Orwellian sameness with her brand of Middle... More on Zov's Cafe Bakery & Bar »

  • The Surfin' Cowboy

    The Surfin' Cowboy

    Surfin' Cowboy is a bar in Capistrano Beach. There's good tequila (though skip the ludicrously overpriced Casa Dragones at $50 a shot) and cocktails that were actually researched and don't rely on artificially flavored vodka. There's freshly... More on The Surfin' Cowboy »

Bars & Clubs

  • Harvelle's Long Beach

    Harvelle's Long Beach

    Those in search of Harvelle's Long Beach location must descend through a musty staircase leading to a space underneath Congregation Ale House. Here, guests are greeted by a dark room with hardwood floors, and plush red booths accented by moody... More on Harvelle's Long Beach »

  • Club Fais Do-Do

    Club Fais Do-Do

    Fais Do-Do is a Cajun dance party, as well as a phrase used by mothers to tell their infants to go to sleep. The Mid-City nightclub Fais Do-Do is very much a raging Cajun dance party, and a whole lot more besides, with its large bar and adjoining... More on Club Fais Do-Do »

  • La Habra 300 Bowl

    La Habra 300 Bowl

    Owned by the Burch family of Burch Ford fame, La Habra 300 Bowl in La Habra is well-known for the rock-throwing athleticism of Glen Allison, who in 1981 bowled three consecutive 300 games. Tossing aesthetic grandeur to the wind, 300 Bowl is... More on La Habra 300 Bowl »

  • Villa Nova

    Villa Nova

    You must know where this place is already. Drive down PCH in Newport and you can't miss it. It's big, grand, like a palace among shacks. You must also know that there is music and dancing and Italian food of the romantic variety, whatever that means. More on Villa Nova »

  • Bootleg Theater

    Bootleg Theater

    Based in a former 1930s warehouse, this brick-walled performance space hosts music, theater, dance and film events in a medium-size theater, which is adjoined by a more bare-bones bar, where indie-rock musicians are booked by the local promoters... More on Bootleg Theater »

  • Joe's Great American Bar & Grill

    Joe's Great American Bar & Grill

    Since it opened in 2005, Joe's really has been one of the San Fernando Valley's greatest bars, with live entertainment nightly and a large dance floor. The Burbank nightclub is renowned for booking top country-music performers, but rock, swing,... More on Joe's Great American Bar & Grill »

Food Trucks

  • Los Reyes Del Elote

    Los Reyes Del Elote

    Though they sell tacos, tortas, burritos and even raspados, the emphasis at this taco truck is on roasted corn-take a cue from the squat, dark man flipping cobs on a grill as if they were flapjacks. And keep some room for esquite, a wondrous... More on Los Reyes Del Elote »

  • Dogzilla Hot Dogs

    Dogzilla Hot Dogs

    Dogzilla is a food truck that sells hot dogs. The great thing about Dogzilla's Asian-inspired hot dog is that their structural integrity remain: the noodles stay in place, the wiener doesn't slip, the bun soaks up everything but doesn't turn into... More on Dogzilla Hot Dogs »

  • Pomona Fairplex

    Pomona Fairplex

    For a long time, this expansive place in Pomona was known as the L.A. County Fairgrounds, and it's still the annual home of the L.A. County Fair, and has been ever since 1922. The 500-plus-acre facility includes Fairplex Park, a race track with a... More on Pomona Fairplex »

Coffee Shops

  • Viento y Agua Gallery

    Viento y Agua Gallery

    Viento y Agua is one of those brilliant gems that make an urban neighborhood (especially in L.A. County) worth living in. Part coffee-shop, art gallery, music venue and restaurant, Viento y Agua still manages to exude a down-to-earth vibe among... More on Viento y Agua Gallery »

  • Starbucks

    Starbucks

    Since its founding by a trio of aspiring coffee roasters in Seattle in 1971, Starbucks has grown to become the largest coffeehouse in the world, with upwards of 20,000 locations in Orange County and around the world. Named for the chief mate on... More on Starbucks »

    • Having twice the skill set in the back of the house means twice as much attention to detail. It also means double the personalities. Yet my time with Ben and Justin of Ways & Means taught me that collaboration and working towards a common goal (in this case, running an efficient kitchen) can only mean success. I interview them shortly before the afternoon management meeting, as they prepare for dinner service. Read our interview with Ben and Justin of Ways & Means, part one. And now, on to part two . . . Name one thing you like about... More on Ways & Means Oyster House »

    • Best friends. Significant others. Chefs de Cuisine. However you want to classify them, I've been interviewing pairs for On the Line as of late. I don't know if they're trending, but there's a positive energy that occurs when you have another person to collaborate with (Maybe it's because you share the stress?). Either way, our subjects for this week are creating a name for themselves at the edge of Old Town Orange. We bounce questions off both Benjamin Wallenbeck and Justin Odegard, the chefs de cuisine over at Ways & Means. How are... More on Ways & Means Oyster House »
