Red O, the high-falutin’ West Hollywood Mexican restaurant that counts Rick Bayless as its menu director, is heading to Orange County. The restaurant will open in Newport’s Fashion Island, where it will likely prosper among people who have never eaten sopes in Santa Ana. Taking over a former Coco’s, Red O will open sometime in the middle of next year, right next to the mall’s forthcoming Fig & Olive. [OCR; Earlier]
