Bourbon rolls to Orange County
Upscale Glendale meat parlor Bourbon Steak has expanded to Orange County, taking over at the Monarch Beach Resort. Don’t expect anything drastically different than the LA location, just butter-poached lobster and steak and whiskey. As for timing, the official opening date is today, and the restaurant will keep evening-only hours to start, from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

Vegan and loving it
