Bistango, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, was voted as one of OC’s “best places to buy original art” by readers of the Orange County Register. Its parent company, Dining As Art, is dedicated to all forms of expression from fine art to the culinary arts.
In addition to its 400-bottle wine list, Bistango offers an extensive list of classic and specialty cocktails and craft beers. Its outdoor patio, Bistango Gardens is distinguished by mature trees, plants and flowers that lend natural intimacy and an enormous circular fountain that serves as its centerpiece.
The restaurant serves lunch and dinner weekdays and dinner-only Saturdays. Live entertainment can be enjoyed each evening in its lounge, and it’s one of the few places in Orange County for dancing.
