“We are proud to have Chef Wallenbeck and Chef Odegard in the roles of Chefs de Cuisine at Ways & Means,” says owner Parnell Delcham. “The restaurant has already become known throughout Orange County for our creative, gourmet menu and all-around culinary excellence, and we look forward to this talented team maintaining that standard.”

Working together, Wallenbeck and Odegard will continue to perfect Ways & Means’ signature dishes, with an emphasis on featuring seasonal ingredients and sustainably-caught seafood, while also introducing new items to further enhance the restaurant’s menu.
