Rocky Mountain-Inspired Restaurant Centered Around Scratch-Made Kitchen and Small-Town Hospitality Opens Second Fairfax County Location
Costa Mesa, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, the casual dining restaurant known for its handcrafted American food and drink, will open its doors to the Fairfax community on Saturday June 6th at 9am.
The restaurant will open with seating on its patio, curbside takeout and delivery service. Employing more than 200 teammates when the restaurant operates at full capacity, the new Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar is located at the Fair Oaks Shopping Center, 11963 U Fair Oaks Shopping Center.
“We are excited to open our second Fairfax County restaurant and to bring our style of hospitality and delicious food to the Fairfax 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 can’t wait to welcome the Fairfax community to Lazy Dog.”
Lazy Dog’s menu focuses on elevated dishes that highlight carefully picked 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.
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 house favorites such as 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 watermelon 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.
