Twenty Eight, Irvine, CA

Twenty Eight Restaurant Review

: Twenty Eight provides the kind of sleek ambience that one may expect from a restaurant near the Irvine/Newport Beach border. Walk past the professionals quaffing refreshing cocktails churned out by the bar that greets guests and you’ll see a minimalist black-and-white dining space that radiates chic through sparseness. Executive chef and José Andrés protégé Jay Lacuesta uses this backdrop to present seasonal contemporary dishes that are built around meat and nuanced Chinese influence. Kick off your meal with a starter like grilled octopus with frisée and arugula or steak tartare with capers, trumpet mushrooms and Chinese doughnut. For mains, dig into the wine-braised oxtail noodles or the grilled whole branzino. Be sure to save room for house-made ice cream --- choices might include exotic flavors like black sesame.
