I did a quick search on the boards to find a topic already in progress but I came up empty-handed. Has anybody been to Mesa in Costa Mesa (at The Camp on Bristol and Baker). There are only a couple of mentions of this restaurant in a thread on Newport Beach/Irvine area high-end dining.
I'm looking for more specific information that is up to date. For example, can anybody confirm a switch in their chefs? I heard the original chef that opened the joint left and his replacement is one of Suzanne Goin's guys from her kitchen at Lucques. Is that a totally false rumor? Can anybody comment on significant menu changes as of late? Or better yet, can anybody offer a recent review . . . possibly with pics?
We've got guests coming into town this weekend and I was considering Mesa as a dinner spot for our small group.
