A Restaurant - any recent visits?
I have been tempted to try A Restaurant in Newport Beach. The parking lot is always packed, and it's a pretty tough reservation to get. Nevertheless, the few posts I have read about it (some time ago) is that it's not really special. Has anyone been there recently...and what do you think?
I love this place. My wife and I have been about 6 times. I think five times for dinner and once for brunch.
I can't vouch for the steaks, lamb or chicken because I haven't had them. We are big on ordering lots of apps for our dinner.
I can say that they have an terrific Charcuterie (including Iberica Jamon) and cheese selection. Among my favorites dishes are the octopus, roasted bacon, a really terrific spicy yellowfin tuna & eggplant dish and the best chicken liver terrine I have ever had.
The last time I was there they made me a pot of bone marrow served with toast points after I requested it.
I have also had the burger which was oh so good. I am a fan of 25 Degrees burger restaurant in LA, and it is owned by the same people.
