The wife and I were just taking a little side trip off the beaten path on a drive from from LA to San Diego when we chanced upon this wonderful surprise restaurant late one Wednesday afternoon in Newport Beach. Hungry for some local tuna, I ordered the Ahi Sashimi and my sweetheart chose the heirloom tomato salad. Oh...and a couple of nice,ice-cold Pacifico's to accompany.
What a treasure! The fish and salad were top notch (see photos) and delicious. Our server Jon was cordial, quick and had a mischievous smile that was arresting. The tuna was abundant, cold and fresh-cut with a nice dollop of wasabi, and a pink pile of pickled ginger. The salad was nicely dressed in a tasty vinaigrette and full of beautiful green heirlooms and cloud-like puffs of fresh homemade burratta cheese.
Give this place a shot and you won't be disappointed. I can't imagine what a dinner might be like here, because our app's were out of this world.
