Since the Packing House opened in downtown Anaheim more than a year ago, a fresh batch of restaurants and shops has cropped up on the neighboring Center Street Promenade, luring foodies and wine lovers after their sojourn to the popular food hall.
Diners sit on a patio under a canopy of twinkling lights and nosh on comfort food with seafood as the star—lobster rolls (market price), shrimp po’ boys ($12 to $14), and drunken clams ($12). 195 W. Center Street Promenade, 714-490-0306
Part-shop, part-wine bar, this spot focuses on small-batch wines. Order a flight, a full glass, or a bottle with a cheese plate at the U-shaped bar or one of the candlelit tables. 280 S. Lemon St., 657-208-1860, colonywinemerchant.com
Charcuterie cones are garnished with cornichons ($7). The cheese plates ($12 to $24) come with marcona almonds, honey, or other surprises. 149 W. Center Street Promenade, 714-520-0225, facebook.com/centerstreetcheese
One of the first spots to open on the promenade, this studio always is introducing new classes (handstand and backbend workshop, anyone?). This summer, it revived the Sunday yoga class in Farmers Park. 209 W. Center Street Promenade, 714-313-1614, theyogamatoc.com
