As we head into pumpkin spice season, it's time for another restaurant roll call as we say goodbye to another month gone by. Herewith is our a list of open-and-shut cases for September.
But let's not kid ourselves. This last month was all a lead up to the only opening that seemed to matter: Halal Guys in Costa Mesa. Though it officially opened on October 2nd, we wrote about it breathlessly in September.
And if you're at the restaurant waiting to get in while you read this, it will feel like you've been in line since September.
