Any good eats between LA and Tustin tonight?

jdwdeville Mar 25, 2013 11:57 AM

Hi all, I looked through the archives but I think either I missed something or Tustin is a culinary desert.
We have a 6pm appt in Tustin today and so will be driving back to LA around 7-8. Is there anything houndworthy to stop for dinner at along that drive?
We have done the Honda-ya before so any other suggestions would be appreciated.
I recall talk of a good, modern greek place along the drive but couldnt figure out what it was.
Thanks for the help!

    Hi everyone thanks for the help- our appointment ended up getting cancelled just as we pulled into town so we hit Tustin Brewing Co. for a beer (a sour, really fruity and with enough new oak on it I could've imagined it was wine) then came back to LA...
    Saw that there is an Okinowan restaurant there on the way back, might have to try that out next time.

      I like the ribs at Johnny Rebs. Best I've had in LA.

          This is indeed the best option but Playground is not open on Mondays :(

          The greek place you heard about is no doubt Zov's On 17th in Tustin: http://www.zovs.com/

            Zov's Greek? Isn't she Armenian?

              Yes, but there's a 'greek edge' to some of the flavor's.

              Actually, now that I've had a sec to do some more research, I believe the Greek place was Orea Taverna...

              I'm a fan of old school and you'll be passing by close to the Dal Rae http://www.dalrae.com/ if that intrigues you at all? A nice Grand Marnier Supreme or Cherries Jubliee prepared table side after dinner?
