The dining room is set to please the eye, with a large spacious area to sit, an extravagant bar, a private room downstairs for parties and a wide variety of specials offered to accommodate the current economy. Nestled in the quaint and cozy city of Newport Beach, California, they are located off of Bison & Mac Arthur in the ever so popular shopping center of Fashion Island.  I would like to share some of their

The two small plates that my husband and I tried were the Scallops and the Lamb Chops. Both of these plates were very yummy!  See some pictures in this post of our dishes as well as other dishes. My favorite wine by far that I would choose to pair with any dish was the Petite Sirah – Parducci True Grit from Mendocino County that truly made my mouth water. This wine was luscious and velvety in texture as I swirled it in my mouth and never ending flavors continued to escape. This was luscious and bold with a cherry, oak, and smoky flavor.
