Wining and Dining
The Hobbit might not sound like a romantic destination, but don’t let the name fool you. Located at 2932 E Chapman Ave, Orange, this multicourse French fare establishment started as a wine cellar and has grown with the demand. The fixed menu is always changing, and there’s only one seating per night at $88 per person. The seven-course menu starts with drinks in the wine cellar, then you transition upstairs for dinner, and finally return to the cellar for nightcaps.
Catal Restaurant is located in Disneyland, but the Mediterranean destination manages to straddle upscale and casual perfectly. If you plan to wow your date with favorite rides and thrills during the day before settling in for a romantic lunch or dinner (or breakfast!), Catal offers oxtail ragu, suckling pig, and diver scallops among many other delectable dishes.
