The North Left
Awww yeahhh

Great news coming out of Downtown Santa Ana: The North Left, the spiritual successor of the Crosby, is now open for business.

They actually had a soft opening last week (which I heard went phenomenally well) to work out the kinks, but now it's prime time. Go tonight. It's located at 400 N. Broadway in the same space as the Crosby, and they'll be serving a very similar menu -- hip, new American cuisine with a focus on the local and the fresh (I hear all of the desserts are gluten free).

Now an admission: Privately, I had kind of rolled my eyes at the name "The North Left." I know I basically owed by social life in the last years of college to The Crosby, but come on? The North Left? This ain't Sasquatch. Well, now my eyes are unrolled. The interior is gorgeous, resplendent with leather and wood -- kind of like a modern Americana take on interior design. The North Left is a perfect name, and I'm super excited that it's open.

You people (OC Weekly and patrons alike) are disgusting gushing over the opening of a restaurant at the same spot where a young woman was kicked and beaten to death by two thug Santa Ana chica gangsters.  I was glad that The Crosby shut down and was hoping that a memorial dedicated to the memory of Kim Pham would open in its place.  I was disappointed that another restaurant has opened there. This is an insult to Kim's memory.  As far as I'm concerned, Kim's blood will always be at that restaurant/club.

Not if it's the same size. It's a tinderbox in there of emotions with a kitchen, live music and a bar in a room the size of a small Starbucks.
