Triangle Square in Costa Mesa has revitalized entertainment – Orange County Register
Always a place to eat, Triangle Square comes out of the pandemic by restarting some of its entertainment.
Although the Keys on Main dueling piano bar finally closed in March, Tavern + Bowl reopened for the first time since last year and Cafe Sevilla, which debuted just before the pandemic, is finally getting the chance to showcase its live flamenco shows .
“It’s part of our menu. You have a glass of sangria, you have a tapa, and you have the guitarist. It’s almost like if you don’t have one, you’re missing the salt in your recipe, ”Anne Van den Haute told the register when the restaurant opened in March 2020.
Van den Haute, co-owner with her husband, Belgian born Eric Van den Haute, grew up in Nimes, France. She often went on vacation to Spain with her family, where she fell in love with the entertainment. “For us, it’s not just about the food, it’s not just about the music, it’s not just about the furnishings. It really is the whole recipe. … If you don’t have the right mix of all the ingredients, the experience is not the same. “

Cafe Sevilla also has locations in San Diego and Long Beach and the Spanish cuisine fits the show: a three-course meal – Jamón Serrano Ensalada Sevillana, Paella Valenciana, lemon tart and a glass of Cava Sangria – are included in the two-part flamenco dance performance for 89 , $ 50 per person. (The price does not include taxes, 4% surcharge and 18% tip.) A tapas menu, wine, cocktails and other extras can also be purchased à la carte.
