C4, New Downtown Santa Ana Deli by Owners of Chapter One, Opens TOMORROW!
On Wednesday, I was stumbling around in downtown SanTana, as I'm wont to do, and walked into the fabulously titled C4: Cure for the Common, the new creation of OC's culinary Two Jeffs: Hall (the gabacho) and Jensen (the Argie), the owners behind Chapter One: The Modern Local. It's a beautiful place, full of exposed brick, gorgeous booths, long marble bars, and a deli already stocked with cheeses. Already on the menu is a great Reuben made from house-cured pastrami, a fabulous farro-Merguez salad, and bread AND dill pickles made in-house that are as great as they come.
It was a soft opening on Wednesday, because they're getting ready for the grand opening TOMORROW during SanTana's monthly Art Walk. GO GO GO!
Reubenesque Reuben at rest
This is going to be one hell of a place, with a wine and beer program run by a member of the Hi-Time family, all sorts of meats for sale (along with said beer and wine), and bread provided by the OC Baking Company. Congrats to the Jeffs, a more substantial review will come courtesy of Edwin, and see you tomorrow!
