The old, the new, and the coming soon... the eternal Santa Ana story.
I find myself in downtown SanTana more and more these days, whether it's buying clothes at Fallas-Paredes or having a drink at the Little Sparrow, and I love it. I love that it's a place that's still got one foot in its traditions and the other in its future. But from a food and drink perspective, there are a few things that would truly make it a one-stop destination for pretty much anyone.

1. Great Pizza

Worth the drive from DTSA to DTF.
A few weeks ago I was in downtown Santa Ana and I wanted pizza. After thinking about the possibilities, and then checking my phone, it's true--there's no great pizza in downtown Santa Ana. There's chain pizza, and there are "flatbreads" that cost a ridiculous amount of money, but what I want is for downtown Fullerton's Fuoco Pizzeria Napoletana to clone itself on la Cuatro.


2. Comida Corrida

Downtown Santa Ana may be evolving away from what one particularly obtuse Orange County Register writer called "the immigrant shopping district", but comida corrida needs to come back. Santa Ana has precious few comida económica restaurants left, where you get soup, rice or beans, an entree, tortillas, and a drink for a low price. It'd be nice if there were just one in downtown Santa Ana.

you're confusing DTSA with other parts of Santa Ana. DTSA is only about 2 square miles and nobody is getting robbed there. People get robbed all over Orange County, California, and the entire country.

The Closest thing I can think of that's a well known Jazz club is in LA - The Catalina on Sunset, but that place has been struggling for years. I think it's actually for sale again right now. Wish I knew somebody looking for a tax write off that large haha, I'd open it for them.

Dtsa needs a good ice cream store.. Not like the shitty one that's there already... Like La Flor de Mexico in Stanton! It caters to the foodies and Mexicans as well.. Something for everyone!

Evan, agreed. That's why it would take someone or some group that has true passion and looking for a tax write-off to bring something like that to our communities. That would put this area truly on the map.

Evan White

agreed, but those are VERY hard to make money on, even in major cities. Still would be cool. I know of a place opening there down the road that will have Jazz, just won't be jazz focused every night.
