Theater Ticket Giveaway for South Coast Rep's Anastasia Krupnik!

Posted by: Terry Winkler
Posted on: Thursday, Jan 31, 2013

Irvine is literally surrounded by great theaters that rival Broadway productions and many times surpasses them in production quality. One of my favorite Orange County theaters, South Coast Rep, consistently produces a wide spectrum of shows that impress - edgy, risk taking theater all the way to the other end of the spectrum of family theater for kids. SCR's Theater for Young Audiences continually hits the mark with productions designed especially for children and their families.

SCR is partnering with Destination Irvine to giveaway a family four pack of tickets!

Terry Anastasia KrupnikTen-year-old Anastasia is opinionated, sassy and funny.  Really funny.  Of course, she also has a funny name, but she'll make up for it in this offbeat story taken right from the pages of her diary.  It's about all the things she loves-and hates-and what she plans to do about them.  This memorable story from the Newbery Medal-winning author of The Giver is a wonderful portrait of childhood and family life, complete with all its ups and downs.

If you were delighted by last season's performance of Junie B in Jingle Bells - Batman Smells, then your family will enjoy South Coast Repertory's Theatre for Young Audiences performance of Anastasia Krupnik February 8th-24th.

Ten Corporations Based in Irvine

Posted by: Sharlene Earnshaw
Posted on: Monday, Jan 28, 2013

Irvine is home to many great things: incredible weather, great outdoor opportunities, a wide variety of ethnic food options, and some of the safest streets in the country. It is also the headquarters of many businesses we patronize all the time. So who sets up shop in all those unassuming white buildings inside Irvine's large business parks? Here are ten corporations that call Irvine home.

Taco BellTaco Bell: They serve 2 billion people inside 5,800 restaurants across the country and made a talking chihuahua with an affinity for tacos a super star. You would be hard pressed to find anyone in America who doesn't know Taco Bell. All the big decisions for this fast food giant are made inside Taco Bells' Irvine headquarters. Fun fact: Taco Bell's biggest competitor on the West Coast, Del Taco, has its headquarters in Lake Forest, Irvine's neighbor to the south.

Blizzard Entertainment: Founded by three UCLA graduates in the early 1990's, Blizzard Entertainment is video game development company behind the wildly popular Warcraft and Starcraft game series.

Boost Mobile: Boost sells pay-as-you-go cell phones and contract-free wireless plans which are particularly popular with the younger set. Boost Mobile employees enjoy some fun perks, including video games in the break area and the ability to bring Fido to work any time they want!

St. John Knits: Fashionistas know St. John for its lines of clothing featuring classic lines and signature primary colors. This designer of high end garments has been in business for over 50 years and is popular with business women around the globe.

O'Neill Clothing: Back in 1952, Jack O'Neill set up a surf shop inside a garage by the beach, selling wetsuits made out of a new material called neoprene. These days, O'Neill makes much more than wetsuits and the brand's clothing line has become popular all over the country. Employees of O'Neill love shopping in their very own company store which offers deep discounts on the brand coveted by surfers and land lovers alike.

In-N-OutIn-N-Out Burgers: There is no burger chain more beloved by Californians than In-N-Out. We love ordering our double double's with grilled onions, asking for Neapolitan shakes, and requesting our fries cooked "well". None of these options are actually on the menu, but being in the know is half the fun. In-N-Out is known for its simple menu (burgers, fries, shakes, and soft drinks), friendly service, and commitment to quality and many out-of-state visitors don't consider their California vacation complete until they have gotten their In-N-Out fix.

Edwards Lifesciences: Heart disease is big business. Nearly 1 million people suffer heart attacks each year and almost 100,000 heart valves are replaced by surgeons annually. One of the largest employers in Irvine, Edwards Lifesciences, is a producer of heart valves and hemodynamic monitoring. As a matter of fact, the first heart valve was developed in 1958 by Miles Edwards himself and resulting technology has saved countless lives. Today Edwards Lifesciences does business in 100 countries across the globe.

BotoxAllergan: Got Botox? Who knew a syringe full of botulism would prove to be so popular with people trying to look younger? Allergan makes Botox and several other pharmaceutical products including artificial tears and the Lap-band, an adjustable gastric band used for weight loss.  

Yard House Restaurants: Have you ever felt like beer was meant to be served in glasses much larger than a pint? Well the folks behind the Yard House chain certainly thought so, and named their restaurant brand after the 3-foot-tall glass containers used by British stagecoach drivers after a long journey by horse drawn carriage. At Yard House you can order any of the dozens of brews on tap in a 3-foot glass or just keep things simple and stick with the traditional pint. But don't just fill up on beer while you there. Order a pizza, snack on some ahi poke, indulge in a rack of ribs, or nibble on a couple street tacos.

Toshiba America Business Solutions: Toshiba is a massive company known for making computers, medical equipment, and household appliances. And while Toshiba's global headquarters are in Japan, Toshiba America Business Solutions is operating independently right here in Irvine. Go Green: In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, Toshiba installed a solar panel canopy structure over the facility's parking lot.

From Casual to Fine Dining-Irvine Restaurant Week

Posted by: Amanda Nguyen
Posted on: Monday, Jan 14, 2013

 Irvine Restaurant WeekI've had an appetite inducing, tummy filling, falling over from being so full kind of weekend to say the least. With Irvine Restaurant Week in full swing, I, along with my fellow Destination Irvine bloggers have shared a few dining experiences with you! The past few days I have enjoyed a compendium of culinary dishes from casual to fine dining settings; here's where and what I ate...

Pho Saigon Pearl

Diamond Jamboree 2750 Alton Pkwy #121, Irvine, CA 92606 (949) 336-0336 

Hours: Monday-Thursday 11am-11pm, Friday 11am-12am, Saturday-Sunday 10am-12am

Pho Saigon Pearl hits close to home, and I am so thankful that there is a pho place located in one of my favorite dining centers. Their IRW menu is more than enough food and SUCH a great price, only $10! In the midst of lunch hour, this place is PACKED! Try to go in the late afternoon, or take advantage of the late hours; I hear UCI students love coming hear for their late night grub fix.

 ---------------------------------
Looking for somewhere to dine that's not so casual, not so formal, just right in between? Well, SWSH Shabu Shabu offers an intimate and unique dining experience. If you haven't had shabu shabu before, you're in for some fun!
 

SWSH SHABU SHABU

Diamond Jamboree- 2710 Alton Parkway, Irvine, CA 92606 (2nd Level) (949) 474-0888 

Hours: Monday-Friday 11am-2pm, 5pm-10pm; Saturday-Sunday 11:30am-2:30pm, 5pm-10pm

A fitting date place or gathering for friends; you are given a plate of thinly sliced meat, a veggies plate with noodles, and a bowl of rice. What you do with the meat and veggies is the most exciting part! In the middle of the table are boiling pots of kombu (kelp) water, or you have the option of ordering flavored broth; which you use to cook your meats and veggies. Afterwards you can dip them in SWSH's homemade ponzu and goma dipping sauces, then enjoy with rice. At the very end, you cook the noodles, at the broth and leftover veggies, and voila you have a soup! Check out SWSH's Lunch & Dinner Menu:

 
 
-------------------------
 Now if you're looking to really wine and dine, The Winery Restaurant & Wine Bar is your place. Nestled in the District of Tustin, the Winery offers 600 different types of wine and decadent dishes to perfectly complement your red or white. I got to taste the Lunch Menu and I truly enjoyed every bite from the soup and salad, to the entrees, and ending with the desserts.
Check out the IRW Lunch Menu and Dinner Menu
 

The District of Tustin-  2647 Park Ave, Tustin, CA 92782 (714) 258-7600

Hours: Monday-Thursday 11:30am-10pm, Friday 11:30am-10:30pm, Saturday-Sunday 5-10:30pm

 
I began with the first course, you can either have the Soup du Jour or the House Salad
soup
Tomato Bisque- The best tasting bisque I have ever tasted, the perfectly creamy.
winery2
This House Salad was the perfect portion; the in-house Dijon Mustard vinaigrette dressing was perfectly complemented by the candied walnuts and Roquefort Cheese. 
 
As for the Main Course, you can pick 1 of 3 dishes below. My personal fave was the Pacific Snapper, everything was perfect cooked and the flavors came together nicely. If you like pesto you'll like the pasta, and if you're a burger person, then WATCH OUT you are really going to enjoy the "Grand Cru Burger". It's humongous so bring your 'A' game. 
winery3 It's not a 3-course meal without dessert! Enjoy a selection of specially made Raspberry and Mango Sorbet OR a Tahitian Vanilla Bean Cream Brulee topped with fresh fruit and a homemade cookie!

 Now get eating! Irvine Restaurant Week is only lasting 4 more days!

Irvine Restaurant Week: Spotlight on the Unexpected

Posted by: Sharlene Earnshaw
Posted on: Sunday, Jan 13, 2013

Don't you just love discovering a new restaurant? A place that you may have never considered in the past but quickly becomes joins your list of go-to eateries? In honor of restaurant week, I set out do discover the unexpected; a contemporary restaurant that locals don't know about (but should), a brewery you will actually enjoy bringing the kids to, and a restaurant at a golf course that even us non-golfers should be eating at.

90 Pacifica
DoubleTree by Hilton Irvine Spectrum
90 Pacifica
Irvine, CA
(949) 471-8888

90 PacificaAnyone who has been to the Irvine Spectrum Center on a Saturday night will tell you that restaurant seating is at a premium.  Reservations at the most popular establishments book up early and 1 hour waits are the norm.  Little do most Irvine visitors (or locals) know, 90 Pacifica is just down the street and offering a nice variety of fresh American cuisine without the crazy wait times.

90 Pacifica, formerly known as Meritage, is tucked inside the DoubleTree Irvine Spectrum, just a few blocks from the busy Irvine Spectrum Center. Unless you were staying at the Doubletree, you probably wouldn't know it existed but this unexpected dining spot has plenty to offer.  An extensive remodel was just completed in November to give the restaurant an open and contemporary look, complete with a spacious bar, and new menu items with an emphasis on fresh ingredients and classic California flavors is on its way. Favorites such as pistachio crusted sea bass and filet mignon topped with fresh gorgonzola and caramelized onions will still be on the menu as well as fresh ahi tuna and the classic Brown Derby style California Cobb.

90 Pacifica food

Restaurant Week Special:  90 Pacifica is offering a 3 course New York Steak meal complete with a famous DoubleTree cookie ice cream sandwich. See the Irvine Restaurant Week website for details.

Steelhead Brewing Co.
4175 Campus Drive
Irvine, CA
(949) 856-222

Steelhead Brewery logoMy least favorite part of a family vacation is trying to find a restaurant where we can eat without having to worry about my kids being kids. I don't want to eat at a pizza place run by a mouse or the same chains I can find at home. I want great food, a local vibe, and a casual enough atmosphere that my children can go unnoticed.  Steelhead Brewery near UC Irvine offers all of these.

My children loved Steelhead Brewery for four reasons: 1. The house-brewed rootbeer flavored with hints of vanilla and honey 2. The large, comfy dining chairs 3. The huge kid's pizzas which ensure they will get pizza leftovers at home and 4. The peanut butter pie.  Oh, that sinfully rich peanut butter pie.  And while my kids have already requested we eat at Steelhead Brewery for their next birthday, I am quite certain I will be heading back on date night for an adult evening revolving around microbrews such as the University Hills Hefeweizen, Anteater Pale Ale, and U.C.I.P.A.  Portions are huge so my husband and I will have to decide whether we will be splitting a wood fired pizza, the beer battered halibut fish and chips, or the classic 100% Angus Steelhead burger. And of course, there will be peanut butter pie.

Steelhead Brewery food

Restaurant Week Special: Steelhead Brewery will be featuring a 3 course lunch menu with a choice of club or cheesesteak sandwiches and a dinner menu with a choice of gourmet mac and cheese or meatloaf. Both special menus include the coveted peanut butter pie. Check the Irvine Restaurant Week website for more details.

Oak Creek Café
Oak Creek Golf Club
1 Golf Club Drive
 Irvine, CA(
949) 653-5300

Oak Creek logoDon't you just love when you can enjoy a good meal and a good view at the same time? It is, after all, the reason why picnics were invented. The problem with picnics is that you have to prepare the food, deal with any critters trying to catch a snack, and there is nobody around to refill your iced tea.  Golf courses may not be the first place you think of when you think about dining but Oak Creek Café at the Oak Creek Golf Club in Irvine offers one of the loveliest views in Irvine.

Most people come to Oak Creek to enjoy 18 holes of golf in a beautiful setting, but those of us who have no business being on a fairway can still enjoy a welcoming atmosphere and delicious meal. Doesn't enjoying a peppered ahi salad with chipotle dressing or a spicy chicken breast on a honey wheat baguette with the 9th green as your backdrop sound delightful? Don't worry, there are plenty of "manly" options as well, including the Oak Creek Bacon Burger which features a beef and bacon blended patty, lettuce, tomato, grilled onion, cheddar, provolone, and a special spread on a brioche bun.

Oak Creek Cafe

Restaurant Week Special: Oak Creek Café is offering a Par 3 in One which includes the soup of the day, a small chopped salad, and a turkey melt for only $14. See the Irvine Restaurant Week website for details.

Irvine Restaurant Week is January 11-17, 2013.

Irvine Restaurant Week Brings High End Dining with Great Deals

Posted by: Terry Winkler
Posted on: Saturday, Jan 12, 2013

Having a champagne palate and a budweiser budget can put a crimp in my dining experiences, so I love when restaurant weeks are in play. I get to dine like a queen and experience some of OC's finest restaurant cuisine for a fraction of the cost.  Did I say I love Restaurant Week?  Yes I did!

More than 30 Irvine restaurants are celebrating Irvine Restaurant Week, which is going on right now, so I'm hitting as many as possible to sample the best cuisine in Orange County.  Here are two of my favorites so far.

 Seasons 52

Seasons 52 - South Coast Plaza     (714) 437-5252

Seasons 52 FlatbreadSeasonally inspired with fresh appeal of the farmer's market, Seasons 52's menu excites and surprises the palate. Everything is delicious AND healthy, all under 475 calories. S52 uses natural cooking techniques such as wood-fire grilling, brick-oven cooking and caramelizing vegetables to let the natural flavors shine through (no butter anywhere in the restaurant!). Did I mention it's delicious?

My dining partner and I teamed up, ordering different items so we could experience as much as possible on the Restaurant Week menu.  We ordered the famous Ripe Plum Tomato Flatbread, the Cider-Glazed Grilled Chicken Skewers, Organic Baby Spinach Salads, Cedar Plank Roasted Atlantic Salmon, Wood Fired Pork Tenderloin, and the Mini Indulgence Desserts - all for just $30 a person.  This was such a great deal and we loved every bite.

I eat a lot of salmon. It's plentiful, healthy and delicous if prepared correctly.  Seasons 52 goes beyond good cooking and transcends their Cedar Plank Roasted Atlantic Salmon to a level of culinary greatness.  I may obsess about this salmon entree, trying to figure out how to cook it like the masters in the S52 kitchen.

Terry Seasons 52 Salmon

Behold:   Seasons 52's Cedar Plank Roasted Atlantic Salmon:  juicy, flavorful, a culinary delite.

 The dinner was finished with one of Seasons 52's famous Mini Indulgences - just a little sweetness to top off the evening. Perfection. This is how a meal is done, folks. Go there, quick! 

Seasons 52 dessert
 
 
 

Next up:  Paul Martin's American Grill


 Paul Martin's

Paul Martin's American Grill - Irvine Spectrum Center    (949)453-1144

The menu at Paul Martin's takes diners back to the American farm with meat raised in a wholesome way, local organic produce and custom-made bread from expert bakers. The California-centric wine features the Golden State's fruitful vineyards, and behind Paul Martin's elegantly rustic bar is an array of local craft beer and spirited cocktails with fresh garnishes. Good times and thoughtful food are a way of life.

The crowded restaurant was filled with families and groups all celebrating the evening in their own way.  We were celebrating the weekend with kids in tow.  Good thing Paul Martin's has the best Angus Cheeseburger my daughter says she's ever eaten.

   

Paul Martin Butternut Squash Soup

Terry Paul Martin Brick Chicken

While the kids were content with burgers and delicious fries (yes, I stole some off their plates) the adults enjoyed Paul Martin's Irvine RestaurantWeek meal selections of the Roasted Butternut Squash Soup (garnished with sonoma sage oil) and main course of "Brick" Chicken (pitman family farms chicken, mashed potatoes, fresh herb jus)  and  the Braised Short Ribs (mashed potatoes, horseradish cream and beef au jus)

For dessert...we were so full, but forced ourselves to share the Banana Cream Pie and Homemade Raspberry Ice Cream with shortbread cookies - all absolutely scrumptious for just $30 a person. Deal? Total deal!

 Paul Martin's reminds me of the most delicious comfort foods I dream about preparing...if I had all those culinary skills and secrets.  Maybe the chef will give me lessons...

Go out and enjoy some great food this week!

Irvine Restaurant Week : 3 Date Night Destinations

Posted by: Ellen Bell
Posted on: Tuesday, Jan 08, 2013

Date Night. noun,  a pre-arranged occasion on which an established couple, especially one with children, go out for a night together.       -Oxford Dictionary

How romantic.

Even with the best of intentions, date nights can become as stale and predictable as the definition above. The same place. The same food. The same old, tired routine.

Beginning Friday, January 11, Irvine Restaurant Week comes to the rescue, giving all local couples a chance to spice things up a bit.

More than 30 of Irvine's best restaurants will be offering two and three course menus at special prices. Just imagine: an entire evening of good food and conversation without a booster seat or kid's menu in sight. During Irvine Restaurant Week,  liven up your old date night routine by trying someplace new or enjoying an old favorite at a special price. 

Here are Three Sure-Fire Date Night Destinations for Irvine Restaurant Week:

CUCINA enoteca 
@The Spectrum
31 Fortune Drive, Irvine
 
Linger awhile....

Irvine Restaurant Week

Warning: If your date night plans consist of dinner and a movie, you may end up changing your plans. Once you've settled into the comfort of CUCINA enoteca, you may decide to skip the movie altogether.

irvine Restaurant Week

A modern kitchen meets country farmhouse in this Italian bistro infused with California Cool. Shop for a bottle in the retail wine shop ( enoteca means "wine store")  and enjoy it with your meal. You may even meet some new friends at one of the lively community dining tables.

irvine Restaurant Week 

CUCINA enoteca has all the ingredients for a memorable evening: phenomenal food in a distinctive setting at an affordable price.

LUCCA cafe
6507 Quail Hill Parkway, Irvine
 
Urban Sophistication with a neighborhood feel....

irvine Restaurant Week

Right smack dab in the middle of Irvine's Quail Hill neighborhood sits LUCCA Cafe, a destination restaurant only minutes from home. Chef Cathy Pavlos has created a menu inspired by her Italian family's traditional Sunday dinners and her European travels. 

Irvine Restaurant Week 

The result is a delicious marriage of fine food and wine, served by the fire or on the patio. 

irvine Restaurant Week 

The quality of the food may be first class, but the staff at LUCCA do their best to make you feel like you're right at home.  

Mastro's Steakhouse
633 Anton Boulevard, Costa Mesa 
 
The perfect place to splurge....  

irvine Restaurant Week

Why wait until February to celebrate your Valentine? Dining at Mastro's Steakhouse is a memorable experience any time of year.  

irvine restaurant week 

Everything about Mastro's is classic: the perfectly prepared filet sizzling in clarified butter, the impressive wall of vintage wines, and the exceptional service of an attentive staff. 

irvine restaurant Week 

During Irvine Restaurant Week, Mastro's is offering a special, 3 course menu that finishes the evening appropriately with the devilish Chocolate Sin Cake.
