Neighborhood restaurant in OC

jgc10 | Mar 29, 2007 05:37 PM

I'm looking for an independently owned, affordable, neighborhood restaurant in Orange County (preferably around Irvine) that I can call my own. As an example of what I'm hoping to find, my favorite French-Mediterranean neighborhood restaraunt used to be Le Tableau in the East Village. A typical meal would be: wild mushroom cigars with a manchego cheese fondue, chicken under brick in tahini-lime sauce with garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach, and a cranberry-orange bread pudding with cinnamon ice cream. All for a prix-fixe price of $25 (although I was told that in the past year they raised the price to $26).
I prefer French bistro, but I'm definitely willing to take other recommendations. I like the desserts at Zov's Bistro in Tustin, but the food was just ok. Thank you!!
