At the Water Brewery’s newest store, the owners have installed a dining room and hired chefs Carli Savedra and Raya Belna to cook what’s currently one of the best vegetarian menus in Orange County. Savedra, who was previously at Old Vine, and Belna, one-third of the Great Food Truck Race’s Seabirds team, make meals that manages to make vegetarian food that makes you forget it’s vegetarian. Instead you focus on the care and the effort they’ve taken to make something that’s simply, well, good. There are no attempts at soy-food fakery here; just vegetables cooked as they’re meant to be cooked.
