OC is open for inside dining.
Not sure how far but try Maggianos in Costa Mesa.

Bosscat kitchen near John Wayne airport has good food/ drinks. Haven’t been there since this crap started but believe they have a patio as a worse case scenario.

25% capacity, or 100 people. Whichever is fewer.

It will probably be difficult with a walk-in.

I was in Newport last week And did take out at sgt. pepperoni And it was packed, way more than 25% and or 100 people.

Good to hear. I hate these regulations as much as the rest of us do. All of the chain restaurants are going to adhere to it though. Just hoping to help out WYRD with his expectations.

There's a place on El Toro called Bru that is pretty cool. They usually have live music for happy hour but not sure with the current shape of things.

At Spectrum Javiers is good.

Agreed. The pizza place is not a chain so I believe they said f’it. I was supprised when you posted the link of only 25% allowed.

They have had quite a bit of outside seating for awhile. They have had live music outside too. Pretty cool.

Javiers is closed for remodel...
Anything in the Spectrum is OK but overpriced
Had dinner at Paul Martins in Spectrum last night..This place would normally be packed on a Thursday....25% inside at best
Good food and drinks...way "Irvine" priced

Javiers at the spectrum is always good.
thats a tough sell for me, I know its "nice" but I just cant get into it. All the guys from work always want to hit that spot, but I'd rather hit a dirty taco truck in downtown santa ana if i'm getting mexican. I'm prob just an asshole though.

IlFornaio is near allot of business and John Wayne. Good Italian and may not be as busy as restaurants close to suburbs
