Dining near the Segerstrom Center for the Performing Arts

Does anyone have suggestions for a nice lunch before a performance at the Segerstrom Center for the Performing Arts in Costa Mesa?

Scotts http://www.scottsrestaurantandbar.com/

The food and service are always good and reliable.

Park there and you don't have to move your car for the performance. It is just a two block walk to the Segerstrom.

Scott's Seafood is a good suggestion, across the street at South Coast Plaza/Village you have Marche Moderne, AnQi, Pinot Provence, Capitol Grill, Morton's, Antonello, Seasons 52, Charlie Palmer, Hamamori and Darya, to just name a few of the fine dining options.

If you want great, Neapolitan pizza, there is Ecco down Bristol.

There is also great Japanese near by, if that appeals. it just depends on the kind of food you'd like.

Note: copy and paste the South Coast Plaza hyperlink since it isn't very hyper.

You're dating yourself scott. Scott's dropped the "Seafood" part of their name when they changed the menu to make it half meat. They still have fish but just not as much of it. But I like the variety on the menu. They also updated the decor.
