Lunch in Tustin/Santa Ana
Headed out to lunch with my boss tomorrow for my review. He gave me free reign on where we go - to an extent. Marche Moderne is too far, too expensive, and too long, and Black Sheep Bistro would probably be the last two as well. Sushi Wasabi would definitely be too expensive.
So, we work near the 5/55 and I want something other than the usual lunch spots. Anything chow worthy that has good food and service?

How about the Crab Cooker? there is a location in Tustin. The chowda is great... eating off of paper plates and using plastic utensils seems initially offensive but it adds to the ambience and the fish always tastes fresh.

It's in the same shopping center as Zov's Bistro.
I personally enjoy the Italian-American experience... and enjoy the following restaurant (especially their pepperoni bread),

re: Professor Salt
I have never been to Roma d'Italia. I have heard mixed things about it. We are close to the odd duck that is DaVinci's, which is actually quite good, but I was going to pass on that one since I have been in the past. What about the new place where Peppino's was on Newport/1st Street. Any good?

I don't eat shellfish, so the main attraction to the crab Cooker is off the menu. I didn't think of Zov's. I would do the more casual side if I went, but that is an option.
So far, I think the lamb sandwich there may be the leading option. I just wish I could find one in OC as good as Julliene's version.
Thanks all. We ended up going to Zov's, the Cafe and Bakery, not the Bistro. I had the lamb sandwich and it left me wishing I lived a lot closer to Julienne's in San Marino. Still, the food was decent and not too expensive, plus it was easy to talk, so a decent choice over all.
Any one know where I can get a really good lamb sandwich in north/central OC. A schwarma/pita qualifies as a sandwich for my purposes.
