What’s the Deal With Newport Beach Restaurant Week?
Newport Beach Restaurant Week happens once a year for two weeks in the middle of January. 2020’s culinary showcase takes place from January 13th through the 26th. Make sure that you check out the Visit Newport Beach website for more on specific dates, a list of participating restaurants, and other important updates regarding this sensational journey for your taste buds. You’ll find specific menus and culinary pairings closer to the dates of the event.
There’s no other time of the year to savor our area’s incredible cuisine at such great prices. For the 14 days of Newport Beach Restaurant Week, establishments across town create unique menus featuring prix-fixe dinners that represent a variety of offerings. While the entire menu is not available at the special restaurant week discounted prices, we think that you’ll find that these dishes are more than enough and equally delicious. Each restaurant charges a certain price per person depending on the location and the time of day. So, you can enjoy a less expensive lunch and then splurge for a slightly pricier dinner. Below is the pricing tiers for brunch, lunch, and dinner:
- Brunch (only available on weekends): $15, $20
- Lunch: $10, $15, $20, $25
- Dinner: $20, $30, $40, $50
Some of Our Favorite Places to Visit During Newport Beach Restaurant Week
Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse
This steak chain is a fantastic place to dine during Newport Beach Restaurant Week, as Fleming’s typically offers plates that include salmon, steak, chopped salads, and California power lunches. They also offer brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Juliette Kitchen and Bar
Juliette Kitchen and Bar features everything from braised short ribs to tuna tartare during Newport Beach Restaurant Week.
This high-end yet trendy Italian restaurant is among one of the pricier options during Newport Beach Restaurant Week, but the beef short rib and baby lamb chops are worth it.
Red O Restaurant
If you’re in the mood for Mexican with a modern twist, Red O’s is the place for you. Try their duck enchiladas or the slow-braised carnitas for a succulent dinner.
Campus Jax is a local favorite, and you’ll see why once you bite into one of their pulled pork sandwiches with a side of gumbo, evoking flavors of New Orleans. If you visit on Wednesday, you can enjoy 50% off whiskey and wine.
