Herb & Ranch – Irvine – November 2019 – Just Opened


Chef Brian Malarkey and the Puffer Malarkey Collective has opened Herb & Ranch at the UCI Research Park Campus, a casual, multi-dining concept that serves breakfast and lunch from five stations. Herb & Ranch looks like a traditional food hall but operates like a fast-casual concept where diners order from the station of their choice and pay at a center register. Herb & Ranch provides the neighboring Irvine office parks with a wide-variety of options and a constantly changing menu, helping them avoid menu fatigue as their work week unfolds.

Herb & Ranch offers inviting indoor-outdoor dining featuring an open-air patio with casual workspaces, meeting and event options and complimentary WiFi. Blending a contemporary farmhouse design with light and breezy Southern California vibe, Herb & Ranch features mindfully sourced ingredients in a variety of stations. During breakfast hours, guests can order a multitude of items from The Grill Breakfast and Coffee Bar, including California or Veggie Burritos, Ricotta Toast with honey, blackberries, tarragon and smoked almonds.Herb & Ranch Farmhouse Station Bacon Hash Chris Costa

There’s also a poke station dubbed Mahalo which offers rotating poke bowls including Miso with edamame, sunflower sprouts & seeds, ginger, cherry tomatoes and shiso.
