BISTANGO: The restaurant enjoys an enduring and loyal following especially among OC’s business community. It even earned the Register’s best “power lunch destination” designation. Its diverse and eclectic menu of contemporary American cuisine has proven popular among locals and critics, alike. In addition to its 400-bottle wine list, which has been heralded by Wine Spectator, 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 where couples often dance the night away.
