The North Left Restaurant Review: This casual restaurant derives its name from two different sources. Firstly, it's located on the northwest corner of downtown Santa Ana. Secondly, it taps into the area's hip and artisanal vibe by offering small and share plates inspired by the flavors and ingredients of the Pacific Northwest. The menu seeks to push the culinary envelope with dishes like boar with beans and brown butter, and sea bream with chorizo and popcorn. Also featured are barrel-aged cocktails and a rotation of craft beers.
