While “The Hobbit” may be known to most as a J.R. R. Tolkien creation, but Southern Californian foodies in the know can attest that it’s also an amazing fine dining establishment founded in 1972.
A truly luxurious meal comes in courses, and a meal at The Hobbit Restaurant takes that one step further by serving up “Acts.” The “Hobbit Experience” comes in seven courses as a prix-fixe (fixed price) meal. Act I sets the stage in the wine cellar, where guests enjoy a glass of Hobbit Champagne and hors d’oeuvres. Act II consists of fish or shellfish, a light meat and a salad. Immediately following the course allows for a brief intermission to stroll the grounds or speak with the chefs. Act III starts with a palate cleanser, then the entrée and finally the dessert.
For a dining experience as classy, fulfilling and delicious as you’ll get at The Hobbit, the trip to Orange is a must –– for great food and expertly crafted ambiance, patience is a virtue. This award-winning restaurant has an ever-evolving menu, so it’s not the type of dining experience to only try once.
The seven course prix-fixe menu is available Wednesday through Sunday by reservation only, so be sure to procure your spot well in advance.
Arrive to an exquisite meal at The Hobbit in an equally luxurious vehicle like a 2014 E250 BlueTEC Luxury Sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. The unmatched class and performance of Mercedes-Benz will complement the fine dining experience.
