Seabirds Kitchen at the LAB in Costa Mesa

Posted on October 14, 2013 | 11:27am

I’ve been a fan of the Seabirds Truck for a while, so when I heard about the Seabirds Kitchen opening at the LAB in Costa Mesa a few months ago, I couldn’t wait to compare the brick and mortar offerings to those from the celebrated gourmet coach.

Friday was the first full day of service from Seabirds Kitchen, so I jumped at the opportunity to sample some of the fare.  I waited until the lunch rush was over, opting for a late afternoon bite.  This way, I thought, I’d be extra hungry and be able to try a few different items from the menu.
