Watch for a mini-food hall in the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC), the giant, glowing armadillo-shaped structure near Honda Center. Whether arriving on Metrolink, Amtrak, via OCTA, or driving, expect Ritter’s Steam Kettle Cooking with an attached oyster bar; organic, fair-trade Lost Bean Coffee; and “progressive convenience store” Mission Market.

The Newport Beach waterfront site is getting an overhaul, and some L.A. food names have staked it out for first O.C. outposts. Publica by Zinque will offer a menu that includes tartines made with Poilâne bread flown in from Paris, outdoor seating, and a street-side takeout window. JUICE Served Here and Honor Coffee Roasters are here, too.

Part of the Pacific City resort in Huntington Beach, the open-plan food hall is designed to complement the hotel’s full-service restaurants. Named for the corresponding lifeguard stations on the beach across Pacific Coast Highway, LOT 579 will feature Burnt Crumbs, a sandwich concept from Irvine’s Burntzilla, Hans’ Homemade Ice Cream, and American Dream Burgers and Beers.

Can a food hall rejuvenate Mission Viejo’s struggling Kaleidoscope Center? Union Market Mission Viejo plans a mix of food and retail similar to its Tustin District sister. Expect Portola Coffee and another Central Bar, boba-milk tea purveyor Milk Box, as well as specialists in the necessary noodles and poke.
