Tired of your restaurant rotation? Try one of these five new spots to add some spice to your meals and add a new stop to your list of favorites.

1 Seasons52

For those concerned with calories, you’ll be glad to know there are no deep friers and no butter in the kitchen at Seasons52. What do they have? The freshest ingredients, a seasonal menu and everything from flatbreads for sharing and cedar-plank salmon, all in a modern arts and crafts restaurant with a piano player and an awesome South Coast Plaza location.

2 True Food Kitchen

Dr. Andrew Weil’s best known for his theories on healthy living and his BFF Oprah, but the second location of his restaurant is fresh (and popular if the crowds have anything to say about it) and modern, with steak tacos and Indian curry on the international menu and amazing fresh elixirs and biodynamic wines.

Steaks aren’t the only thing on the menu, but if you want the best around, then there’s South Coast’s crowning jewel. Celebs, socialites and everyone between are raving about this new spot, so check it out for yourself.

4 Canyon

OC darling Rich Mead’s new spot remixes comfort food and a lounge atmosphere, making favorites like pork chops and slow-cooked meats alongside salads and more for his fans. While it’s a trek to go head to the Hills, the food is definitely worth the trip.

5 Ecco

This CAMP spot isn’t as granola as its counterparts, but if you want straightforward Italian, there’s amazing staples here as well as modern twists. Without the vegan or vegetarian spin on any of the Italian fare, you might just forget that you’re at the CAMP.
