Neo-American Steak House attacked to a shopping mall in Orange County. Very high ceilings, very stylish staff and service. This is not a Ruth's Chris Steak House, this is a steak house in southern California that paid a lot of money for decorating.

Food was very good, and there was a real wine steward to navigate the list (with a very positive outcome). I like the giant wall of wine bottles arranged in a way that is more like a decoration than a convenient way to house a lot of wine.

Excellent joint!
