Catch of the Day: The Haute 5 Seafood Restaurants in Orange County

If you’re in the mood for ocean fare, Orange County cuisine is the place to satiate your shellfish craving. Although they both sound like odd drinks, ditch the shrimp cocktail for a tasty Cioppino and you won’t regret it. From traditional lobster tail to sexy sliced sashimi, you can find everything under the sea on this side of Pacific Coast Highway.


If you don’t trust the name, try them on the half shell and make your own judgment. The perfect setting for a date (Valentine’s Day wink wink), live jazz and low lighting set the intimate tone at this CDM landmark. Want traditional with a twist? Try your oysters Tobiko style with wasabi-infused caviar. Now, that is some spicy sophistication.
