Help in Orange County

fat kitty | May 5, 2010 12:49 PM

On Sunday we are traipsing down to Orange County to celebrate 3 family birthdays with my dad. The only time of day we can all get together is brunch / lunch. Unfortunately, it happens to be Mother's Day, too, so that probably makes brunch more complicated....

Looking for something delicious in the Newport / Irvine / Costa Mesa area. Can be casual to "nice". Hopefully someplace where we'll be able to get a reservation for 6 or 7 people. We are open to various types of food, from traditional "American" to Japanese or dim sum or French, or.....? (Probably not Mexican since we all eat that all the time.) Also, some place with a wide menu selection would be great as we all have different eating habits and health issues, but prefer no chains.

Tall order? Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm afraid for what happens if we leave the selection up to others in the group.
