Restaurants

  • Pizza D'Oro

    Pizza D'Oro

    You can recite the menu from our collective Italian-American memory: the tangled network of spaghetti (served all-you-can-eat on Wednesday for a preposterous $4.95); the subs with enough girth to knock a baseball out of Angels Stadium; the garlic... More on Pizza D'Oro »

  • Commonwealth Lounge

    Commonwealth Lounge

    This downtown spot has successfully separated itself from the herd of local sud-slingers with unique aesthetic flourishes. Remarkably, the bar itself is table high, and patrons are seated in cushy, broad-backed chairs. The recessed liquor shelves... More on Commonwealth Lounge »

  • The Shore

    The Shore

    One of Downtown San Clemente's newest restaurants is actually updated from an old one (Shore House CafĂ©). A margarita is the libation of choice, and the ahi salad is the thing to nibble. Sweet-potato fries, burgers-all the crowd-pleasers are... More on The Shore »

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

Food Trucks

  • 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 »

    • 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 »
