Two Part OC Question

vlad Jan 24, 2007 01:07 PM


1) Any recs for a romantic, 'cute' place to take my wife out for her b-day? Food would preferably be continental. Doesn't have to be expensive.

2) Any european style bakeries in the Newport/Costa Mesa/Irvine area? Would love to get her a Sacher torte.

    Zov's is amazing...restaurant and bakery; call them if you strike out at Cafe Blanc. Pascal's is the ultimate: yummy & understated, romantic. Very expensive. His sous chef was there the night we went and it was still incredible. Enjoy!

      I think Pascal is it. A colleague of mine just recommended it.

      And Cafe Blanc is getting back to me whether they can do a Sacher to my liking.

      Thanks to the both of you.

        Try Cafe Blanc in Costa Mesa for amazing chocolate deserts....I'm sure they could make something similar to a sacher torte if you ask...

          Pascal's - just make sure he is in the kitchen that night!!

          I'd look into ordering a Sacher torte online, but the bakery at Old World may make them.
