“Time to Explore…”

One of my favorite things to do in Orange County is to try new restaurants with my fiancé and girlfriends. It’s a great excuse to get together and dress up (we all know I love the dressing up part). I tend to get stuck going to the same places in Newport and pretty much anything in Laguna Beach.


Recently, I started reading “Orange Coast” magazine because they feature different restaurants in the area. Some are new and others are not, however, they offer coupons for free appetizers or drink specials. My goal this Summer is to try at least two new places – I think this is pretty doable.

Here is my list so far:

  1. The Anaheim Packing District – I figure I can knock out at least a couple of places there.

  2. Boathouse Collective – I missed the O’Neill event that was held here a few months ago and I’ve been regretting it ever since!

  3. Sea Legs Wine Bar – I heard they have an amazing brunch. Plus they have a great deal on Groupon.

  4. Mesa – This place is so close to my work it would be a perfect option for Happy Hour.

  5. Shirley’s Bagels – Every time I pass this place there’s a line out the door. I’m assuming the breakfast is unreal and I need to try it!

Thanks for stopping by and if you know of any cool restaurants in the OC area, I would LOVE to hear them.

    I’ve heard great things about Sea Legs and Shirley’s does have a great bagel but I prefer Einstein’s. I’m with you, I stick mostly with Newport restaurants. Branching out for me is anything outside Fashion Island, haha. I need to try the places on your list too!

      Hey there Diane,

      I’m happy to hear I’m not the only one in OC that doesn’t branch out! I guess we know what we like and stick to it ha ha 😉

      Thanks for stopping by!
