Mesa Restaurant Review

: Mesa is one of OC's sleekest nightspots for dinner, late-night dining and a hot bar scene. The organic décor and dark interior give it a cool metropolitan vibe, and smokers can stand underneath its famed retractable roof to light up after 11 p.m. Executive chef Niki Starr Weyler, whose pedigree includes the kitchen of Broadway by Amar Santana, ensures that the contemporary cuisine isn’t an afterthought. Start with a hand-shaken cocktail and the cast-iron skillet PEI mussels with the right touch of butter and slices of chorizo. Next, try the balanced roasted beet salad, which is accompanied by goat cheese, pistachio dust and citrus, and topped with a Prosecco vinaigrette. Beef and seafood mains are highlighted by the wine-braised short rib served with house-made gnocchi and microgreens. At meal's end, go for the warm bread pudding with vanilla maple bacon. Want to pair your food and wine? General manager Peter Jaisel can recommend reasonable by-the-glass selections for each dish.
