When Chipotle (pronounced chi-POAT-lay) opened its first store in 1993, the idea was simple: demonstrate that food served fast didn’t have to be a “fast-food” experience. We use high-quality raw ingredients, classic cooking methods and distinctive interior design–features that are more frequently found in the world of fine dining. When we opened, there wasn’t an industry category to describe what we were doing. Some 16 years and more than 900 restaurants later, we compete in a category of dining now called “fast-casual,” the fastest growing segment of the restaurant industry, where customers expect food quality that’s more in line with full-service restaurants, coupled with the speed and convenience of fast food. We try to do a few things really well. We elevate basic raw ingredients into food that’s richer and more sophisticated through our recipes and cooking techniques. Similarly, our restaurant design transforms simple materials in distinctive ways, giving our restaurants a style that’s more architectural in nature and less dependent on standardized design elements.

In 1917, 15-year-old Ray Kroc lied about his age to join the Red Cross as an ambulance driver, but the war ended before his training finished. He then worked as a piano player, a paper cup salesman and a multi-mixer salesman. In 1954 he was surprised by a huge order for 8 multi-mixers from a restaurant in San Bernardino, California. There he found a small but successful restaurant run by brothers Dick and Mac McDonald, and was stunned by the effectiveness of their operation. They produced a limited menu, concentrating on just a few items—burgers, fries and beverages—which allowed them to focus on quality at every step.

Yard House is the creation of founder and entrepreneur Steele Platt, who came up with the concept shortly after relocating from Denver, Colorado to Southern California in the early 1990s. Platt, along with partners Harald Herrmann and Carlito Jocson, wanted to create a restaurant that would offer one of the largest selections of draft beers, a diverse menu of American fare, and play a heady selection of classic rock music on a state-of-the-art sound system. On December 7, 1996, the flagship Yard House opened along the Long Beach waterfront in Southern California.
zpizza was founded in the art colony of Laguna Beach, California, where creativity and craftsmanship have flourished for almost a century. So it comes as no surprise that our critically acclaimed pizza is a true Laguna original. A passion for great food is why we start with dough made from 100% organic wheat flour prepared fresh every day, hand-thrown and fire-baked until uniquely crisp. Our zest for quality continues when the toppings go on. We combine select ingredients using award-winning skim mozzarella from Wisconsin, certified organic tomato sauce, MSG-free pepperoni, additive-free sausage, and fresh produce. Our gourmet salads and sandwiches are just as delicious. We hope you enjoy our authentic and unique recipes as much as we enjoy making them for you.
Originally Posted on Newport Beach Magazine.com Fresh winter flavors are the focal point of Provenance’s new offerings, which will satisfy any sweet tooth this season. By Ashley Probst Transport yourself to the wine country when dining at Provenance, a Newport Beach-based restaurant that is described by its executive chef and owner, Cathy Pavlos, as a “Napa-esque” environment that serves contemporary Californian fare. After almost four years of operation, this sustainability-minded eatery has gained a renowned reputation for providing its diners with fresh and flavorful dishes that change with the seasons. One aspect of the restaurant that patrons tend to find most appealing is the 1,300-square-foot garden situated on the open-air patio, where ingredients are picked off the vine, right in front of their eyes. In addition to the savory plates and exquisite cocktails, Provenance also has an ambrosial selection of seasonal desserts—now featuring whimsical winter confections through January. The Apple Pie a la Mode on the Beach is a delightful play on a traditional apple pie that features caramelized Granny Smith apples, bourbon-candied pecan sauce, spiced cookies, caramel and cinnamon “sand,” all topped with vanilla bean ice cream. The cookies are so crisp and flavorful, it’s almost impossible to tell […]
Tapping into Mexican Wine Country
Varieties from Baja California’s increasingly famous Guadalupe Valley are making their way up to Newport Beach — one bottle at a time. By Alina Orozco Just a few hours south of Newport Beach, in Mexico’s Guadalupe Valley, wineries are turning out impressive blends that are gaining attention. The flourishing wine-growing area is located off a dusty path between Tijuana and Ensenada—the tricky route is a series of abrupt, uneven and unpaved roads. Once there, the scenery is stunning: Mountains surround the valley, while oak trees, olive groves and vineyards stretch along the hillsides. This picturesque, seemingly small town, has actually been producing wine for nearly a century. Today, the Guadalupe Valley is estimated to be home to more than 100 wineries and produces the majority of all the wine made in Mexico. The dry, hot summers and the cool winters of Baja California, combined with drainage-friendly, porous soil and coastal breeze make up the ideal conditions for grape growing. In fact, virtually any vine variety excels in the region, which has no signature grape. Additionally, there aren’t any rules, so winemakers create blends of tempranillo, cabernet sauvignon, grenache and malbec, as well as chenin blanc, palomino and sauvignon blanc, among […]

Taste of Success (A Recipe)
After a day on the water, returning home with a bag full of fresh fish is the ultimate success, but once back on dry land, deciding how to cook your catch is the next challenge. To help with that, we reached out to the chefs at The Ritz Prime Seafood for an easy recipe to take your fish from the sea to the plate. Pan-Seared Local Halibut with Lentils and Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette Servings: 4 Halibut 4 six-ounce fillets of fresh halibut (or any other firm, white fish) Salt, to taste 2 teaspoons olive oil 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 3 sprigs fresh thyme 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice Season the fish with salt only.
