Wouldn't it be nice if you could pick up courses of your meal from different restaurants and have a wonderfully ultimate meal in Orange County?
Like (possible route), crab and artichoke bisque at Newport Landing, then a crab cake from Bayside or Gulfstream, then you pick your wine, then a prime rib sandwich from R&D or the Atrium, then a sucre tart from Brussells Bistro or a bread pudding from Five Crowns > all still fresh and warm? Still dreamin' > enjoyed in a room at the Montage.
Another wish, get the recipe for the Oysters Rockefeller that was available at the place that was there before what is now Aubergine (wish I had known the chef - or even the name of the place - there). Those were the absolute best in the world, IMHO.
Maybe the new Svelte will allow in food deliveries?
What meal would you put together with delectable dishes from favorite places in Orange County?
