Chef Noah Blom and wife-partner Marin built on the success of Arc at The OC Mix with Restaurant Marin, a chic diner that also features wood-fired cooking. Grab breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the covered patio in a blue cushioned booth or grab a blue plastic table indoors, all set to French accordion music. Breakfast is as luxurious as you want to be, whether you prefer a basic bacon and egg sandwich or crab hash browns. Later in the day, they pile buttery lobster rolls with shrimp and serve a downright architectural chicken pot pie. Don’t leave without eating dessert, whether it’s supple donut holes served with whipped cream and quad-berry jam, or a towering slab of cake.

Fun article we worked on with an up-and-coming website:
It’s been a few years since I’ve had the opportunity to participate in a progressive dinner – or safari supper, as they refer to it in the UK.
