When’s the last time you read about a gastropub opening in central OC? How about never? The foodie/pub crowd is celebrating with a corned beef slider, a pint of ale, and watching a game on two 50-inch plasma screens at the new Haven Gastropub in Old Towne Orange. Gastropubs hail from London, where you can enjoy the best of both worlds: a relaxing pub-like environment and upscale, gourmet cuisine. Haven Gastropub’s comfort foods are prepared from scratch (even ketchup) in an ambiance of cobblestone-covered walls, copper, candle light and dark woodworking.
Choose from well-edited contemporary classics by Le Cordon Bleu-trained Executive Chef Greg Daniels: house-cured corned-beef sliders with garlic aioli and warm cabbage slaw, mac n’cheese with black truffles, and braised short ribs, slow-cooked with Firestone Union Jack IPA and served with roasted garlic-carrot puree. You have to try the housemade potato chips, soaked in ale and fresh seasonal herbs and served with aioli dipping sauce. Affordably priced entrées range from $5 to $20.
And we can’t leave out the handcrafted microbrews and hard-to-find beers, including the world’s oldest Weihenstephaner Original Lager (est.1040), boutique wines and, of course, single malt Scotch and whiskey.
Open daily for lunch and dinner, as well as late night: 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. 190 South Glassell Street, Old Towne Orange. 714.221.0680.
