Chapter One: The Modern Local


{coconut crusted shrimp - curry sauce, cabbage slaw & pineapple}


{scallops - lemon parsley puree, scallions, truffle oil & lemon}

{escargot w/ wild mushrooms - roasted pepper, thyme & garlic butter sauce, w/ goat cheese & prosciutto crouton}


{mac & cheese - white cheddar, fontina cheese, pearl onions, smokey bacon, fried onions, toasted panko - AMAZING}

{smoked salmon jerked nachos - smoked salmon tossed in jerk seasoning, topped w/ tobiko caviar, citrus sour cream on crispy wontons}

{white trash sweetbreads - skewered sweetbreads, housemade buffalo sauce, blue cheese dressing}


Just added one more spot to my list of places "I must come back to" whenever I'm working up north. Chapter One: The Modern Local, combines the excitement of downtown (Santa Ana) with the comfort of home. Their menu is eclectic and satisfying, and who can beat their happy hour which offers a mix of tapas for just $5 a pop?! Aw, and how cute is the little band? Warms my heart, while the selection of beers and wine warms my belly...
