NB Restaurant Week Social Media Round-Up
Here’s a cold, hard, delicious fact: we’ve been eating well here for the past 11 days. In large part, that’s thanks to the dozens of restaurants that participated in this year’s Newport Beach Restaurant Week, offering diverse multi-course menus with affordable price tags. But we also have to give a nod to our hungry diners—the foodies who not only ventured out to explore the city’s culinary scene, but also opted to share their scrumptious brunches, lunches and dinners. Since there are a few more days left before Restaurant Week draws to a close on Jan 26 (which means you still have time to make those reservations), we decided to round up some of the most drool-worthy photos that popped up on our Instagram feeds.
These asada burritos and nachos from Chihuahua Cerveza. Paired with the taproom’s brews? Now that’s a meal we’d find any excuse to eat again.
This chocolate decadence cake from 21 Oceanfront. Who doesn’t want to end dinner on a sweet note with a rich and indulgent chocolate cake, uplifted with a touch of raspberry and blackberry?
This Hawaiian poke from Current Coastal Cuisine. Think: big eye tuna, roasted nori, maui onion, scallions, avocado, edamame, seaweed salad and taro chips.
This chilaquiles dish from Helmsman Ale House. We’re talking house-made guajillo sauce, pickled red onion, cotija, scallion, avocado mash, topped off with a fried egg. Yum.
This chicken and doughnuts dish from Great Maple. To be more specific, it’s buttermilk-fried chicken paired with maple-bacon doughnuts, all drizzled with maple syrup!
This cracked pepper bucatini from Fable & Spirit. Whipped up with manila clams, pancetta, parmesan and smoke-cured egg yolk, this pasta dish will be one of the best things you’ll eat this year (and possibly next).
These oysters from Cafe Jardin. Delicious chilled champagne poached oysters—served with leek, salmon roe, dill cream and sea beans—will bring joy to every oyster lover out there.
This chef’s bowl from Gracias Madre. Leave it up to the chef to create something truly craveable—a power bowl of kale, green rice, sautéed veggies, mango salsa, avocado, sesame dressing and crispy capers.
This Cali classic breakfast burrito from GuacAmigos. Happiness is this burrito stuffed with hash browns, scrambled eggs, cheese, lime sour cream, ranchero salsa and avocado.
This sushi assortment from Sushi Roku. Aka the best and most delicious answer to “what’s for lunch?”
