French American | Mission Viejo / Rancho Santa Margarita, South Orange County

We have been big fans of sister restaurant Dublin 4, and this was the first time we tried this side of the house. Excellent experience throughout the evening. It was our wedding anniversary, and not long after we were seated, the owner personally stopped by to wish us happy anniversary. A small gesture, but the essence of hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My foie gras starter was the equal of any similar dish I've had in NYC, as were the rack of lamb and moules et frites. Of course, the Dublin 4 Irish coffee is the perfect conclusion to the dinner, and no one does it better. More

Journeyman's Food & DrinkJourneyman's Food & Drink
$$$$
Contemporary American | Fullerton, North Orange County

Journeyman’s Food & Drink is the most recent passion project of executive chef Zachary Geerson. The cuisine which can only be explained as Post-modern and globally-inspired, draws from chef Zach and his team diverse cultural background and training. Chef Zach, being of Sicilian descent, uses that and his love for Italian cuisine, as a jumping off point for some dishes and inspiration from his wife, Olivia, who is Thai and Laotian.

Journeyman’s distinguishes itself from other restaurants nearby by fusing modern with classical, working extremes and subtleties, and dancing back-and-forth over the line of others expectations. The beverage and service of Journeyman’s matches the quality of the food. We do not wish to be fine dining in the known context, but offer great food, beverages, and service with a fine mind.More

Discover Orange County

Located in the sunny state of California, Orange County is known for its many tourist attractions. Considering that Orange County consists of 34 cities and is more populous than 21 U.S. states, you can bet the attractions include not only the best surfing beaches, the Balboa ferry, and sites like Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland but also a huge selection of restaurants. The warm climate enhances the growth of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, which can be found in many restaurants. Although iconic California foods like Rocky Road ice cream and sourdough bread may have originated in other CA cities, they’re also popular in Orange County. Fast food places, drive-ins, and Korean barbecues are popular in this area, too. Smoothies in the summer, however, take the cake.
