Irvine Restaurants

On weekends, the line at the 85ºC bakery stretches down the sidewalk, and things sell out fast! But get there when they first open during the week and you can get anything you want in a flash. 

Restaurants in Irvine offer casual diners and foodies alike the qualities that are quickly making Orange County a standout on the Southern California dining scene: fresh ingredients, diversity and leadership in "green dining."

Here, diversity is the norm. In California, "healthy" never means "boring" and culinary innovation is a way of life. Irvine is also perfectly positioned for farm-to-table dining. Whether in the casual upscale settings of gems like Bistango or Andrei's Conscious Cuisine & Cocktails or one of our many casual restaurants serving family recipes perfected over generations, many Irvine restaurants choose local produce and meats not just for the good of the planet, but for the rich and subtle flavors they bring to every dish.

Because of Irvine's international community, our restaurants also offer favorites from Chile to China, with a concentration of fast, friendly Asian restaurants you might only expect on the Pacific Rim. In fact, some of our eateries — BCD Tofu House and 85ºC Bakery Cafe, for example — are loved in Korea, Taiwan and Japan but you can only enjoy them stateside in Irvine and Orange County or one or two locations in major coastal cities like New York and Seattle.

In short, Irvine offers foodies true global cuisine, with a wide selection of foods from India, Thailand, Vietnam and other distant shores: the chance to dine around the world in just over 40 square miles.
