I had the pleasure of visiting 4th Street Market Food Hall during its preview at the February 2015 Savor Santa Ana. While there, I enjoyed an assortment of delicious snacks for pre-purchased tickets. At Electric City Butcher I sampled a meat pate atop a cracker, with mustard and pickled cabbage. It was a scrumptious little bite of heaven. From Noodle Tramp we enjoyed a Thai noodle dish that knocked my socks off.

Some of architecture’s biggest names such as Charles and Ray Eames, Richard Neutra, and Eero Saarinen contributed to the project, and their creations redefined the relationship between design and modern living.
