They just keep on coming at Costa Mesa's South Coast Collection. There's yet another restaurant slated to open at a mall that is already host to a handful of eclectic upstarts.
ARC is an American eatery where everything is made in house or
sourced from local artisan producers. Food with a focus on flame, flavor
and finesse where every item is crafted over open fire in a kitchen
where there is nowhere to hide.
Our goal is to embrace the lost
love of simplicity, while satiating the guest with classic dishes that
focus on fresh, farmed and vibrant ingredients. Cast iron, wood and
black clay make up all the serving dishes to further emulate the natural
appeal and inherent passion dedicated to every nuance.
You can ask them what they mean with that confusing last sentence when they open in a few months. According to the restaurant's Facebook page, the construction work doesn't start until later this week.
