BBQ – Food Network’s Cat Cora’s New Concept BBQ Joint

According to QSR Magazine Food Network’s Cat Cora (a.k.a. Iron Chef Cat Cora) will be opening a non-traditional BBQ Joint in the Macy’s at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. Aptly named Cat Cora’s ’Que (or CCQ), it “will share its Macy’s home with two other concepts, La Brea Bakery and celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson’s Marc Burger.”

Per the article, ‘the concept will be aimed toward families and mall shoppers and feature global barbecue with sauces from all over the world, including Asian, Caribbean jerk, and Argentinean chimichurri. Meat is the focal point—slow smoked beef brisket, pulled pork, and smoked chicken. Customers can choose from platters, salads, or wraps, which Cora calls “the barbecue version of a burrito.” Vegetarian choices will include fire-roasted vegetables, a signature chopped salad, and sides of beans. Rounding out the menu will be seafood dishes such as skewered shrimp with a Basque rub, chili or lemon zest, garlic, and olive oil.”

  1. I’m not sure how authentic to ‘que it will be, but it should be a good restaurant if it’s like her restaurant at Walt Disney World.
