Favorite Restaurants of Orange County Food Insiders

CAMERON CORTESE
His Place Chapter One, Santa Ana
His Pick Eats Kitchen & Bar, Irvine
I love Chicken Wing (Jason Montelibano). Who doesn’t? I like his innovative style, and his Filipino influence makes every dish interesting. I’ve never tried anything of his that I didn’t like. Don’t miss the fundido mac ’n’ cheese!

His Place Chapter One, Santa Ana
His Pick Oak Grill, Newport Beach
Chef Marc Johnson and I were friends before I started at Eats, so it’s a lucky coincidence that our restaurants are (Irvine Company) sister properties. Oak Grill is my favorite place when I’m in the mood
for a nice dinner out.

His Pick Sushi Noguchi, Yorba Linda
I highly recommend Sushi Noguchi—it’s simply the best sushi I’ve ever had. Chef Hiro is on another level. Order Hiro’s omakase; it will not disappoint.
