Dine along the Newport Coast

Jun 15, 2023

Aug 2, 2023

From midweek lunch meetups to unhurried weekend brunching to date nights, A Crystal Cove creates bespoke meals that diners rave about all the way home.

This dapper offshoot of storied A Restaurant (est. 1926 in Newport Beach) claims a dazzling Newport Coast site (part of the original Irvine Ranch) for its next generation of movers, shakers and scene-makers. Legendary for surf-and-turf cuisine, this kitchen pays homage to old classics while boosting the menu with daytime fare. Also an upgrade, the dramatic setting with swanky-by-the-sea vibes.

Lunch is the sleeper find, an indulgent option for bypassing dinner crowds. Soaring doors open to the ocean breeze, adding a side of glamour to the terrific burger, a soulful Cubano sandwich or the famous Caesar salad with crispy capers. Add the short rib omelet or lobster Benedict for weekend brunch. Dinner is all about top-notch Wagyu steaks, exquisitely seared scallops and luscious New Zealand lamb rack over couscous. And throughout every meal – polished VIP service. After dark, a DJ drops the beat with tracks that reveal that indeed, you have the hottest table in town.

Las Brisas

Laguna Beach

Take in one of OC’s most beloved ocean views at this landmark for sea-to-table specialties with a Mexican accent. Think crab omelet for breakfast, butter-poached lobster for lunch or a resort-worthy rib-eye for two at sunset. Midweek happy hour is divine for warm chips, fresh guacamole and just-shaken margaritas.

Joey Newport Beach

Fashion Island

This new restaurant is the freshest concept in town. A peppy crew keeps the libations coming, so a wait on the breezy patio passes quickly. An all-day menu of eclectic dishes stars steak-and-sushi combos, an excellent chicken Parmesan and the snazziest hummus platter in this ZIP code. Look for both early and late happy hours.

Marché Moderne

Crystal Cove Promenade

Florent and Amelia Marneau are the heart and soul of Crystal Cove’s most adored dinner destination for next-level French cuisine. Regulars often bypass the generous menu of bistro classics like steak frites or duck confit in favor of Florent’s wildly creative daily specials and Amelia’s sublime weekly desserts – all with tip-top service.
