The Corner Restaurant Review

: Tucked away in an unassuming Huntington Beach strip mall set away from the city’s oceanfront downtown area, this cozy, sparsely decorated place captures the essence of a true neighborhood hangout. Running the show at the chef-driven, black-and-white-hued joint is Chris Grodach, who honed his skills at Montage’s Laguna Beach and Beverly Hills properties. There are loads of creative starters on his menu, from a mortadella croque madame and thick, crispy fries that take 48 hours to make to tuna tartare tostadas and seasonal salads. Mains share the same recognizable-yet-progressive spirit, as seen in entrées like thick-cut calamari steak piccata and Korean-style barbecue chicken. For dessert, expect a rotation of crisps that emphasize seasonal fruits. The L-shaped bar makes for an inviting spot to enjoy a wide range of skillfully mixed cocktails, from slightly tweaked takes on traditional concoctions to unique offerings such as an elaborately presented absinthe fountain. The weekend brunch menu intersperses intriguing fare like braised short rib on toast with poached eggs and Tabasco aïoli with regular items, plus different styles of endless mimosas.
