USA CREATIVITY TAKES (WINE) FLIGHT Lido Bottle Works is the place for craft cocktails, wines and beers in a festive waterfront space. The kitchen rolls out elevated casual fare — think Seasonal Burrata Salad adorned with locally sourced greens, hazelnuts, apples, mangoes, and a brown butter vinaigrette finish. www.lidobottleworks.com BRUNCH AND BEYOND At The Great Maple, located in the upmarket Fashion Island Mall, our pick is the fabulous Charred Cauliflower Hummus, served with house-baked flatbread and market fresh green snap peas, pink watermelon radishes and sliced carrots.
