Yeah, that's it. Javon is up in LA. Thanks.
I wouldn't recommned Spectrum if you like trying new places since there's nothing interesting at all there.
There's also a new French place on the 3rd floor of the mall right outside of Norstroms (mall side). Charlie Palmer is also pretty good and there's a bar menu and the full menu at the bar and you don't need reservations. It's not as good as his other places, but it's pretty good for the OC. Pascual's is probably the best French in that area. There's truely NOTHING in Irvine... which is pretty sad since it's a pretty affluent area, but people seem to like the chains there.
