Eureka!, Irvine, CA

Eureka! Restaurant Review

: The Irvine location of this small burger chain is open and airy, and it captures a casual side of the city that mirrors the adjacent UC Irvine campus. The exterior is a great place to people-watch, while the interior is home to an inviting, sleek bar that offers a long list of whiskeys. Whatever seat you choose, hunker down and try one of the signature burgers, which feature intriguing ingredients such as bacon-infused jalapeño jam, homemade fig marmalade and bone marrow porcini butter. Those who don't want a burger can enjoy a salad or a New American dish such as slow-roasted pork ribs with orange chili sauce or Sauvignon Blanc-sautéed salmon. Be sure to save room at meal's end to enjoy desserts like bourbon barrel cake with pecans and caramel.
