Although SOL Mexican Cocina is new to the Centerview neighborhood, it’s no stranger to the Orange County scene. This will be the fifth venue for SoCal’s beloved Baja-inspired restaurant, and according to Randy Sharpe, CEO of Xperience Restaurant Group, it’s bigger and better than the others.

“This is our biggest SOL location to date, and with multiple spaces to host fun, lively gatherings, we’re able to truly bring SOL’s mission to life within the restaurant space,” Sharpe says. SOL Mexican Cocina Irvine

SOL was created to share the best of coastal Baja Mexico, where you can sip on hand-crafted margaritas, feast on wood-grilled tacos and enjoy live entertainment. Escape to SOL and get away without going away. With an eclectic menu of seasonal dishes, this elevated eatery uses locally sourced ingredients and ensures everything on the menu is made fresh daily (yes, even their 12 different salsa options).

From their award winning Taco Vampiro to their spicy “popcorn” cauliflower taco drizzled with coconut-avocado salsa, there is something for everyone on SOL’s signature menu. However, if you’re interested in a romantic dish to spice up your date night, the grilled sweet corn is a must. It is served tableside and the light smoky flavor is great for a starter.

As for drinks, the Besos De Muerte is a must. Made with Del Maguey Vida mezcal, elderflower liqueur, lemon juice and bitters, the smoky and floral contrast offers a uniquely refreshing cocktail. It’s no surprise that even popular dating app Bumble—in partnership with OpenTable—voted SOL one of the best date-night spots in Southern California. But if you don’t have a special someone to share an exciting evening with, don’t worry: their incredible cocktail menu is ideal for any type of celebration!

EXP 5/7

Along with memorable hand-crafted margaritas, there’s more than 80 types of tequilas and mezcals to choose from at SOL. Don’t miss their new cocktail and martini selection, especially their signature Martini Del SOL.

You can expect the love to be served up year-round at SOL’s newest Irvine location. “For us, SOL Irvine feels like a homecoming, in that we get to connect with our local fan base and serve even more guests,” says Sharpe.
