A busy, busy March for the local restaurant scene this past month. We saw the long-awaited Chapter One: The Modern Local debut on St. Patrick's Day in Santa Ana. This week, we witnessed the popular Laguna Beach sushi bar O Fine Japanese Cuisine open its second restaurant in Irvine. The month was also the month all Harry & David stores became extinct.
