Best eats & drinks Irvine/Laguna/Costa Mesa area

AquaW | Jun 30, 200512:50 PM

A H.S. & college friend of mine is coming for a visit this weekend and we are looking to meet up with another mutual friend (a non-chowhound ;) ) in the Irvine area, and looking for budget-friendly (less than $20 a person) good eats and cocktails (I don't think we'd object to hopping between 2 different places for eats and drinks).

Excellent desserts are a MAJOR plus in this (past excursions to that area usually leads into the Cheesecake Factory, but feeling a bit more adventurous this time around)

Please advise and thanks.
