During a two-year period sometime ago, while I presided over the National Conference of Christians and Jews (NCCJ), we worked to establish "Interfaith Councils. " To the best of our ability, these included all the faiths in this diverse environment where we live. We now have 11 Interfaith Councils in Orange County, which include every faith from Baha'i to Zoroastrianism. For example, the mission statement of the Interfaith Council of South Orange County states: "We are representatives of diverse faith communities and friends gathered for the purpose of promoting respect, tolerance and understanding for the beliefs, cultures and traditions of all religious faiths through interfaith dialogue, education, service and activities.

The restaurant is serving Mary Alice's pride salad, roasted parsnip soup and braised Boulder Valley shortrib, among other items. Also Bryon Freeze's title is chef de cuisine, not chief de cuisine.

If you haven’t already heard about David Myers’ Pizzeria Ortica in Costa Mesa, you probably haven’t been paying attention because it’s been written up everywhere. The consensus is that the pizza’s just dandy, but short shrift has been given to the rest of the menu. We’d like to rectify that omission and commend chef Steve Samson for putting out some authentic Italian dishes, using good ingredients and letting them shine. The result is clean, simple and tasty food.

It is so obvious when chefs-turned-restaurant owners understand what it means to dine out. There are a lot of them who don’t, and it is painful when they attempt to merge their brilliance in the kitchen to the front of the establishment. Charlie Palmer fully understands that concept.

The impressive wine room is the first amenity that catches your eye when you walk into the restaurant, and they have worked on building a world-class selection.
