5 Indulgent Tastes

Here, the finest things hitting the Orange County food scene
Freshly shaved truffle adds heavenly flavor to Andrea Ristorante's cheesy risotto.

Italian Tableside Risotto
We can’t decide what’s more enticing: the tableside presentation of Andrea Ristorante’s decadent risotto or the fact that it’s served from inside a wheel of imported Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

Milk Rolls
It’s no secret that Bluegold blows minds with everything from shellfish towers to roasted bone marrow, but there’s nothing quite like these superflaky biscuits that are dusted in thyme sea salt and served with honeycomb butter.

Duck Confit French Toast
Mix Mix Kitchen Bar has us kissing chicken and waffles goodbye and replacing it with crispy duck confit and thick brioche French toast with caramelized blackberries in a cider duck sauce and warm maple syrup.

Bistro Burger
Housemade ground short rib and chuck, smoked bacon rum marmalade, white cheddar and more, plus a side of pomme frites, make Mr. G’s gourmet burger a winner.

Pan-Roasted Sea Scallops
Craft House’s chef, Blake Mellgren, serves these outstanding oceanfarers on a comforting bed of cheesy risotto and mushrooms sprinkled with Parmesan and herbs.
