The Corner Restaurant Review

: Tucked away in an unassuming Huntington Beach strip mall removed from the oceanfront madness of the city’s 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 --- from short rib tacos 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 a lobster-stuffed baked potato. Desserts are highlighted by a rotation of crisps that emphasize seasonal fruits. The L-shaped bar makes for an inviting spot to stop by and enjoy a wide range of skillfully mixed cocktails, from slightly tweaked takes on traditional concoctions to unique, fun offerings, such as the elaborately presented absinthe fountain. The weekend brunch menu intersperses intriguing fare like pot roast hash with poached eggs and Tabasco aïoli with regular items, as well as different styles of endless mimosas.
