Ever wonder what it really takes to get an eagerly anticipated restaurant open?
For the last year we’ve been patiently following our own, Chef Andrew Gruel’s, progress in opening Two Birds (cluckin’ good chicken done two ways) and Butterleaf (vegetarian food for non-vegetarians) in the new Trade Food Hall in Irvine located near John Wayne Orange County Airport.
At long last they are about ready (subject to final permitting) to begin service. We’ll hear all about it.
Chef Andrew was also on the front page of the Orange County Register’s “LifeStyle” Section on Thursday, April 20th talking about his openings at Trade. The feature, with photos, continues on Pages 3 and 6.
