Orange County brings together a mix of culinary treasures that helps make the West Coast a dynamic foodie destination. Hot spots like Sushi Roku in Newport Beach and the Country Club in Costa Mesa offer bold modern flavors in an exciting upscale atmosphere for evenings out.

Mexican food is a staple here, with elegant sit-down dining rooms like El Mercado Modern Cuisine sharing menu space with low-key taqueria favorites like Taco Adobe. The blend of cultures inherent to this region provides an exciting blend of options for lunch diners, with the hip fusion creations of Ten Asian Bistro and midday meal magic from Istanbul Grill's traditional Turkish dishes.

Naturally, you'll find healthy California fare featured heavily on local menus; Nourish Eatery specializes in kombucha and nutritious dishes, while Green Tomato Grill brings vegan eaters unfussy bowls and wraps.

Of course, Orange County is home to some of the best seafood eateries in Southern California, with five-star fisheries like The Dock serving memorable dinners in a luxe waterfront setting.

Fresh-baked bread is another area trend, with artisan bakeries like Rendez Vous Café serving baked treats to curious customers.

And we’d be remiss not to mention the electrifying bar and brewery scene: Try Flip Lounge for an eclectic retro-themed cocktail bar experience or FireLake Grill House and Cocktail Bar for a more urbane evening out. Native Son Bar is your go-to craft brewpub to whet your whistle.

With so many unique dining experiences in Orange County to represent the greater SoCal food scene, this vibrant locale is a perfect starting point for a never-ending food adventure, bar none.
