Best Vegetables Orange County 2013 - Chapter One: The Modern Local
This downtown SanTana madhouse has food for everyone—epic burgers for the gluttons, adobo-sauced hot wings for the multiculti, flatbreads for groups, bacon doughnuts for sweet tooths—yet its best dish is the simplest: the organic OC vegetable basket. Every couple of days, the chefs get a shipment of vegetables from a local farm and sautée the harvest, only adding a sauce (sumptuous romesco, tangy vinaigrette, simple olive oil) as dressing. Something anyone can make? Let's see you make broccoli, kale, mushrooms, tomatoes, carrots and celery into something that's not a wussy salad. Go ahead—we're waiting!
