Quite an extensive menu.

My buddy had the wedge salad and an order of bruschetta. I ordered the Garbage salad.

For some reason here in Orange County, the Wedge salad is very popular. It’s basically a quarter head of iceberg lettuce with a few other veggies on the side, and then smothered in blue cheese dressing. It looked good, if a little monotonous.

The bruschetta came with 6 largish slices of bread and a medium-sized scoop of tomato mixture in the middle. Together with the Wedge, it was a lot of food.

The garbage salad had lettuce tossed with grilled chicken, half of a hard boiled egg, cheddar cheese, roma tomatoes, artichoke hearts, green onions, pancetta bacon, green & black olives, & balsamic vinaigrette. I could only finish about 2/3 of it, but the taste was very good. The green olives added a tanginess that I really enjoyed. There was a lot of chicken, and there were also some croutons.

Overall a very good lunch. Together with 2 Arnold Palmers and tax, it was about $30.

It’s a large place, and it looks like the bar might get going at night. It's a good place for a break from the shopping at South Coast Plaza.
