The Crow Bar and Kitchen 2325 East Coast Hwy Corona del Mar CA (949) 675-0070

It is called a GASTROPUB, a British term for a public house (pub) which specializes in high-quality food, steps above the more basic "pub grub”. The name is a combination of pub and gastronomy and was coined in 1991 when David Eyre and Mike Belben opened a pub called ‘The Eagle' in London. Gastropubs typically have an atmosphere which is relaxed and a focus on offering cuisine prepared as well as it is in the best of restaurants. Staying true to the format requires a menu that complements the assortment of beers and wines the gastropub offers. Some describe gastropubs as the Anglo-equivalent of the French brasserie, Italian trattoria or the Japanese izakaya. the crow bar and kitchen staff has created a different type of pub menu that celebrates local food, honors tradition and welcomes seasonality, with special attention given to illustrate the varying ways beer and food can be paired to make both more enjoyable. These menu changes will further support Crow bar and kitchen Gastropubthe farm to table model. The crow bar and kitchen is proud to support sustainable agriculture as well as local farms and businesses in order to serve food that simply tastes better. Pubs with their welcoming, fun and vibrant atmospheres have a long history of anchoring and building communities. The crow bar and kitchen is committed to establishing a new category of neighborhood restaurant that will maintain the classic attributes of comfort and affordability while delivering superior food and service to its guests. The crow bar and kitchen is based on principles of high quality and taste and joins others in supporting a biodiverse, sustainable food supply, local producers, heritage foodways, and rediscovering the pleasures of the table. The atmosphere for the crow bar and kitchen is an amalgamation of attentive service, the ambiance of a local pub and upscale, gourmet cuisine. An extensive selection of international brews, 20+ on tap and many more by the bottle. A selective wine-by-the-glass program (20 – 25 available in this format) will further provide a unique experience to Orange County.
