Clay Oven

icon-green-checkmarkDine In
icon-red-XTakeout
icon-red-XDelivery
Italian
At the Clay Oven, we not only offer you the best of Indian cuisine, but also take you on a culinary tour around India. Our Indian cuisine is unusual in its flexibility and diversity as there are no rigid recipes or rules and it reflects the various influences of religions, cultures, foreign invaders, and the geography and climate of the country. One significant influence on the cuisine of India has been the Ayurveda, the ancient Hindu treatise on health. Ayurvedic texts have influenced how foods are prepared and consumed, thereby contributing to a healthy body and a better quality of life. The most commonly asked question about Indian food is “What is a curry?” In India, it simply means a dish with gravy made with a lot of fresh herbs and spices with fish, meat, or vegetables as the main ingredient.

Peruvian
Inka Grill was founded on the home-style cooking of Ana María Montoya-Ives. Born in a small fishing village in a northern province of Perú, she came to California in the early 1980s with two small children and a dream to make it in America. Working her way up in the food and hotel industry, she honed her ideas and developed what has become her vision of Peruvian cuisine, which we hope is what you are about to enjoy here today. Many of our recipes were handed down to Ana by her grandmother, Juanita and her mother Forunata. These are traditional dishes from the north and mountain regions of Perú. All of our ingredients are the freshest and are prepared to order. Perfection takes times, so sit back and enjoy one of our wonderful specialty drinks or choose a bottle of wine from our extensive wine list, and enjoy a little bit of Perú.

Summit House Restaurant

icon-red-XDelivery
American, Classic, Continental
The Summit House is designed as a replica of the classic English inn, perched conspicuously overlooking the “countryside” of North Orange County. Walking into the Summit House, one senses activity, the sounds of the laughter and good times. The spit is hung with roasting beefs, ducks, marinated pork racks, tankards filled with the finest wines, and a table heaped with sweets and such. For dinner, Chef Timothy’s specialty is a magnificent prime ribs of beef, slow roasted all day, that is so tender (we’ve been told) you can cut it with a fork! So for your next special occasion, whether it be an intimate get-together for two, or two hundred of your closest friends, join us at “The Summit.” If you happen to sit by the window in one of our big over-stuffed chairs, or in a cozy booth by the fireside, you won’t want to leave! See you soon. —Gary Parkinson, Proprietor.
