Restaurant Roll Call for August 2011
August was literally a hot one in terms of weather and figuratively in terms of the number of restaurants that opened. We're still anxiously awaiting the debut of Batali's OC outpost of Mozza, which looked like it was about to open but then, not really. Never you mind: There was plenty of other new eateries to keep an itinerant diner busy. Here's what we've noticed in openings and also closings this month.
RESTAURANT/VENUES OPENED IN AUGUST
Teo Sandwiches, Westminster
Two Forty South, Brea
Birch Street Bar & Grill, Brea
Pho King Way, Mission Viejo
