Stag Bar Reopens as Stag Bar + Kitchen
Stag Bar has been around for a very very long time. Today it officially reopens as Stag Bar + Kitchen. What makes the + Kitchen part? That would be longtime Orange County Chef Jeff Moore.
Stag has a tiny menu. Almost everything is made in house down to the wing sauce. No Franks Red Hot here. There's meatballs, pizzas, salads, and wings....that's about it.
Your first bite of the pies here might make you consider a theory that Jeff was kidnapped as a child from a master NYC pizzeria family. The crust is right. Combining the chew and the toppings easily makes this one of O.C's best pizza spots (get the Meat Coma you don't have a choice.)
The best spot in the tiny restaurant space would be at the Chef's counter. Its a open kitchen and its fun to see all the work that goes into your food. Just don't distract Jeff. He is a busy man.
