There's a been a flurry of new restaurant activity in Surf City lately. I've noticed three to be exact. Here's a quick rundown:
takes the place of a departed Beach Pit BBQ at 301 Main Street (Suite
107) and is the sister of the Pizza Lounge in Laguna Beach. Along with
the usual suspects of pepperoni pies and yes, that new classic BBQ
chicken pizza, they've also got an eclectic list that includes Coconut
Shrimp Pizza, Peaches Chicken and Gorgonzola pizza, and a Shrimp
Cranberry Chipotle Pizza.
Freebirds World Burrito, that hippie version of Chipotle that has its other OC store in Orange, has also opened in Huntington Beach at 18541 Beach Blvd. Word is that they're also planning a third store at CSUF next year.
Last but not least, there's North Shore Poke Company, which opened in the thick of downtown at 214
5th St (Suite 101). Correct me if I'm wrong, but this may be the first
restaurant to solely dedicate itself to the Hawaiian dish, actually
serves haupia pie for dessert, and all without a kalbi plate lunch in sight.
And oh yeah, there's a new In-N-Out in nearby Seal Beach.
