The North Left | Santa Ana

Santa Ana is becoming a food destination for Orange County, especially downtown, and The North Left is a standout. Chef-Owner Ryan Adams and Chef de Cuisine Aron Habiger work closely together on the "rustic refined" menu and have put together a thoughtful line-up of dishes for dinner. The Brussels sprouts are probably some of the best I've ever had, and the pig shaped biscuits by pastry chef Ashley Guzman are THE cutest (and taste really good, too). This place is worth adding to your list, and not just if you live in Orange County.
