(COSTA MESA, CA) Nov. 6, 2019 – Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, the casual dining restaurant known for its handcrafted American food and drink, will open its doors to the Corona community on November 6 at 11am. The new Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar will open in the Corona Hills Plaza retail center at 380 McKinley Street.
Lazy Dog’s menu focuses on elevated dishes that highlight carefully picked seasonal ingredients, as well as handcrafted cocktails and select beers from local breweries. Each restaurant welcomes guests into a warm atmosphere that celebrates the majestic scenery and artisan authenticity of the Rocky Mountains. With a large fireplace, wood accents and cozy seating options, the décor is the perfect backdrop for Lazy Dog’s made from scratch meals and spending time with family and friends. Lazy Dog also offers brunch on the weekends, plus daily happy hour and late-night offerings.
“We are thrilled to be in Corona and to bring our style of hospitality and delicious food to the neighborhood,” said Chris Simms, founder and CEO of Lazy Dog. “The team, the guests and the community are the reason why we do what we do—to offer a dining experience that feels like family. We are excited to open our doors and introduce the Corona community to Lazy Dog.”
Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar is dedicated to the communities they serve. As part of the restaurant’s pre-opening festivities, Lazy Dog will be hosting private fundraising events to benefit Habitat for Humanity. A Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting will take place on November 6.
The Lazy Dog menu is dedicated to elevated comfort foods showcased on every plate, and served with warm, caring service in a rustic social setting. The menu features a combination of new seasonal dishes along with house favorites. New items include starters such as Cowgirl cheese dip + pretzels; entrees such as shrimp + grits with housemade sausage and bell pepper gravy, wild boar chili with indigo cornbread fries, Nashville hot portobello (a vegetarian take on the spicy Southern favorite) and lamb barbacoa tacos; and desserts including a carrot cake made with almond flour and pineapple buttercream frosting for those who are gluten-sensitive and apple-huckleberry open face pie, all made in house. Lazy Dog favorites include BBQ bison meatloaf, campfire pot roast, wok-fired calamari, seared ahi tuna salad and housemade butter cake, as well as an array of burgers, sandwiches, salads, shareable plates and more.
To complement the food, Lazy Dog's bar program features a variety of handcrafted cocktails, including the smoked maple bacon old fashioned with bacon-washed Tincup mountain whiskey and the hibiscus margarita with small-batch Lunazul tequila, and house beers like their Huckleberry Haze IPA.
Designed to feel like a Rocky Mountain Wyoming escape, Lazy Dog’s grand interior will be complete with lodge-inspired furnishings such as cozy fireplaces, ledge stone, a chandelier crafted from Aspen logs and artwork reminiscent of the Cowboy State. Multiple flat-screen TVs will be installed throughout the bar and patio areas so guests may cheer on their favorite sports teams, and a dog-friendly patio will offer a special menu for dogs featuring grilled meats and brown rice.
