Restaurant Roll Call for June 2014
It looks good even without the filter.
Anne Marie Panoringan
Here were are. In July. Half the year behind us. But to this list, it's another month of new restaurants. We saw two restaurants coming back for triumphant returns: Break of Dawn and The North Left (Née The Crosby).
But you know what was the most popular opening this month judging by the number of page views and Facebook likes? Another donut ice-cream joint. It might take another half year before any of us tire of donut ice-cream joints...and that's fine by me. Bring more on!
Here's the list of the open-and-shut cases we wrote about last month.
RESTAURANT/VENUES OPENED IN JUNE: Farmers Markets at Crossroads and The Square, Irvine Driftwood Kitchen, Laguna Beach Veggie Grill, Irvine 85°C Bakery Cafe, Fullerton Frozen Bar, Garden Grove Break of Dawn, Laguna Hills Ritter's Steam Kettle Kitchen, Huntington Beach J. Zhou Oriental Cuisine, Tustin Tastea, Costa Mesa à la minute, Orange The North Left, Santa Ana Al Forno Caffe, Costa Mesa
RESTAURANT/VENUES CLOSED IN JUNE: Paradise Perks, Irvine
