Newport Beach Restaurant Week Launch Party
Do you have a restaurant in Newport Beach that you’ve always wanted to try? Newport Beach Restaurant Week is the perfect time to try a restaurant that you’ve always wanted to visit, or come back to one of your favorite dining destinations. Guests can dine during the week of January 17th through the 26th at some of Newport Beach’s premiere dining destinations at discounted prices with prix fixe menus.
We got a sneak peek into what to expect during Newport Beach Restaurant Week at their preview dinner at the Back Bay Bistro earlier this week. Rockin Baja Coastal Cantina, Mayur, Muldoon’s Irish Pub, and Cucina Alessa were serving up samples of delicious food from their Newport Beach Restaurant Week Menu.
Muldoon’s Irish Stew
Muldoon’s Irish Pub was serving their rich Irish Stew packed full of vegetables, and bursts of rich flavors. Guests can experience this perfect winter dish paired with their favorite glass of beer during restaurant week at Muldoon’s Irish Pub in Newport Beach. Muldoon’s is offering a $15 lunch menu, and $20 dinner prix fixe menu during Restaurant Week.
Farfalle with Smoked Salmon at Cucina Alessa
One of our favorite dishes of the evening was the Smoked Salmon Farfalle pasta from Cucina Alessa. The dish is created with fresh salmon filets that are sauteed with white wine, garlic, shallots and olive oil. The salmon is blended with a Vodka cream sauce and served over a bed of bow tie pasta. Cucina Alessa is located right along Pacific Coast Highway with a family-friendly dining environment. During restaurant week, they are offering a lunch menu for $15 and a dinner menu for $20.
Mayur Quinoa Salad
For guests seeking an authentic Indian dinner, Mayur Cuisine of India has an incredible menu planned. We loved their fresh and light quinoa salad that is the perfect starter before tantalizing your tastebuds with the main course. The highlights on their dinner menu include Shrimp Tandoori, Chicken Tikka Masala, and Lamb Curry. Guests are invited to dine at Mayur for a $15 lunch or $30 prix fixe menu during restaurant week.
Back Bay Bistro
There is a wide variety of restaurants to choose from during restaurant week that are offering menu pricing of; Lunch: $10, $15 or $20; Dinner: $20, $30 or $40. All the menus and pricing is listed on the Newport Beach Restaurant Association website.
