Family Owned and Operated
At Flights & Irons, we understand that being part of the community carries with it a certain amount of responsibility, and we take that serisouly.
Grassroots Culinary Group launched Flights & Irons Urban Kitchen in 2018 with the mission of providing an elevated dining experience in an approachable local setting.
Crafting a Unique Dining Experience
Our goal from the beginning was to make Flights & Irons something unique to San Clemente. Having lived in the San Clemente and Dana Point area for nearly 20 years, we knew this part of Orange County was ready for a new and exciting restaurant concept...
What does Flights & Irons really mean?
Any Chef will tell you that one of the most important parts of any kitchen is controlling the heat. You're entire menu revolves around it. And in the world of cooking, there is no better conductor of heat than a cast iron pan.
F&I cooks nearly all of our items in cast iron, and we finish them off in our wood fired oven where we burn a mix of citrus and red oak. Looking to venture into the world of craft beer or fine wine but not sure where to start? Sample one of our hand picked flights or create your own!
