ARC is an American eatery located at SOCO in Costa Mesa. Everything is cooked over open fire. I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while, but the early reviews were a mix. Finally we took the plunge and tried this place. I am glad we did.

Steak & Eggs
Duck Egg, Potato, Creme
My husband had this dish and really enjoyed it even though they forgot the egg. We told our server and they apologized and right away provided him with an egg. They serve this dish on a hot cast iron plate and because of that one side got cooked more than the other side and the steam made my picture blurry. The steak was very flavorful and this dish was a total comfort dish.

Steak Salad
Grilled, Goat Cheese, Fresno
I was surprised at how beautifully this salad was arranged. Grilled little gems were great and went very well with the pickled Fresno, sweet cherry tomatoes and tangy goat cheese. The steak was cooked perfectly to medium rare but I prefered my husband’s steak to this one. The grilled bread was a nice touch and I shared it with my husband.
