Located in the former Z-Tejas space in South Coast Plaza, The Hall Global Eatery comes from the imagination of Amar Santana whose restaurants, Vaca in South    Coast Metro and Broadway in Laguna Beach, are proven winners in culinary circles.

At SCP to check out the Year of the Rat Lunar New Year decor, I decided it would also be the perfect time to check out Amar’s new venture. Its on my 2020 blog list.

Nearly 8000 square feet, The Hall features food from around the world.  There is a charcuterie and raw bar offering cocktails, Mediterranean food station, café area with baked goods, sandwiches, salads, coffee bar, fresh juices, and retail section with packaged  goodies. It looked like there was something for all tastes.

There is also a very attractive patio.


I opted for a Cuban sandwich with a very tasty bottle apple juice from France.


The Other Thing – I will come back again with one of my foodie friends. The raw bar looks very inviting – maybe some oysters, charcuterie tray and a glass of wine.
