June is gone. And there goes half of 2015. But, my oh my, was that a busy month for new restaurants. We saw and wrote about a dozen new restaurants opening, including a UK-based milkshake shop shaking up HB, Mitsuwa Costa Mesa finally getting a beer bar, and a new breakfast joint hatching up in Downtown Fullerton. What will this new month and the rest of the year bring?
