Seabirds Brick-and-Mortar to Open in Downtown Santa Ana
The Chase family's controversial rebranding of the Fiesta Marketplace as the East End Promenade caused a lot of hand-wringing and angry words from people who've accused downtown Santa Ana of pandering to hipsters and gentrifiers. Well, we've got a new idea: just call it "Great Food Truck Race" alley.
We Forkers have been hearing persistent rumors that a raw and/or vegan restaurant was going to open in the plaza at the corner of East Fourth and North Spurgeon. Now it seems like the Seabirds truck--an amazingly talented group of people out to prove that just because it's vegan doesn't mean it's hippie rabbit food--will call it home.
Further bulletins as events warrant--it'll be a while, since the space is empty and will need to be 100% built out.
