Dining Solo in OC

BekahR | Jun 2, 2011 07:32 PM

Hi all,

I'm new to town and looking for nice restaurants in Orange County that would be good for dining alone. Preferably someplace quiet enough to chat with a decent bar space and friendly staff, but above all *good food*.

I have already found The Crow Bar and SideDoor in Corona del Mar, and Pascal's is on my list. I would like to find similar restaurants anywhere within a 20min drive of Costa Mesa. A place with outdoor seating would also be welcome. I can always bring a book to keep myself amused, but am generally open to chatting if I'm at a place with friendly people.

Thanks for the advice and suggestions.
