Best Steakhouse Orange County 2013 - The Hobbit
It's not actually a steakhouse, but owner/executive chef Michael Philippi prepares a beef entrée for just about every menu. And you will devour five courses before you reach the most amazing steak. The tenderness of the cut and the silkiness of its accompanying sauce will hold your attention, even as your belt screams for release. And as you lick the remaining morsels from the gold-rimmed plate, you will not feel any shame, as everyone else is doing the same thing. The satisying desire you feel is akin to that first time you realized you were in love. It's lovely and warm and breathtaking.
