Sectrum diningIt’s a new year and there’s no time like the present to try the fantastic four new eateries that have opened at Irvine Spectrum Center!

Whether you’re in the mood for a warm and tasty meal reminiscent of the comforts of home; something light, crisp and refreshing; or a delicious ooey-gooey hot fudge brownie sundae, you’re covered.

Looking for a hot meal on the go? Then Pieology Pizzeria (949-450-1000) is for you! Priding themselves on making the best tasting, healthy pizzas around, Pieology allows customers to create “kustom” pizzas with a wide selection of only the freshest of toppings . For just one price, you can have a piping hot pie made to order and fired in five minutes or less to eat-in or take home!

If your new year’s resolution includes leading a healthier lifestyle by eating clean and fresh, check out Tender Greens (949-679-9135). This fast-casual eatery, now open in Edwards Court, is known for its farmer’s market sensibility and healthy fare. Tender Greens is committed to offering locally sourced, organic (whenever possible) salads and “hot stuff” including grilled fish, chicken, beef or vegetables served as a sandwich or as an entree. We also suggest complementing your meal with a selection from their local wine and microbrew menu.

Taverna Blu (949-450-1100) is a casual, social and Greek neighborhood eatery serving delicious Greek and Mediterranean cuisine in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. The cuisine can be paired with an extensive selection of beer and wine and enjoyed for lunch or dinner on their inviting patio located across from Macy’s.

Don’t forget about dessert! If that ooey-gooey brownie got your attention earlier, make sure to visit the new Häagen-Dazs scoop shop (949-450-0881). Located in Giant Wheel Court, enjoy the best in ice cream, sorbet and frozen yogurt made from only the purest and finest ingredients in the world. So simple, so delicious.
