Newport Beach Summer Menus
When thinking of Newport Beach cuisine, we like to consider the three S’s: sustainable, seasonal and sourced locally. Newport Beach restaurants take great pride in finding the freshest ingredients from the sea (some even have their own boats) and land via what’s fresh from local farmers. See our roundup below of Newport Beach restaurants offering seasonal summer menus for al fresco dining and take-out before they’re gone!
Sourcing seasonal ingredients and including them in her menu is a true passion for Chef Amy! You’ll frequently catch Chef Amy picking from the garden at Lido Bottle Works to include in her menu. During the summer, stone fruits such as pluots, nectarines, peaches and plums, are in season and they’re incorporated in creative ways such as her Burrata Salad and French fries served with Peach Chipotle Ketchup. This summer, try the Summer Melon Salad or the ceviche made with seasonal fish, mint and avocado!
Farm fresh, locally sourced and prepared with love, Farmhouse at Roger’s Garden is known for their seasonal, sustainably sourced menus on their beautiful outdoor patio. This summer, try their Farmhouse Market Salad with in-season ingredients like mandarin oranges, dates, sun gold tomatoes and watermelon radishes or their Farmhouse Vegetable Plate with an array of summer vegetables like grilled corn, summer squash, sugar snap peas and grilled peach relish.
