I love California Fish Grill — Have you tried it? They have about a dozen locations and serve a lot of fresh fish, but right now I can’t get enough of their Trout with Garlic Butter Sauce (above).
All Charbroiled Fish is topped with California Fish Grill’s Garlic Butter Sauce or it’s served Cajun Style and comes with French Fries or Rice, and Coleslaw, Beans or Zucchini. Your Fish choice can be grilled or fried. Fish Tacos, Wraps, Salads and Soups are also available, but I can’t not get the Trout.
Matt likes their Battered Fish & Chips too. Here is California Fish Grill’s Menu.
Newport Beach Restaurant Week wraps up this Sunday, January 31, 2016. We attended its kick-off event at the Balboa Bay Resort, along with the Mayor of Newport Beach and the President of the Newport Beach Restaurant Association (on stage above) and many others. We toasted to NBRW.
It’s always a great time to dine out in Newport Beach — It’s such a beautiful city and prices are especially good now. When NBRW is happening I like to try new restaurants. It’s in its 10th year.
We sampled several dishes currently being offered on various prix-fixe menus.
Pictured above is the Grilled Albacore Sandwich available at the Lighthouse Bayview Cafe, a fairly new restaurant on the Balboa Peninsula. Did you know Newport Beach has 450+ restaurants?
It does — See which restaurants are participating in Newport Beach Restaurant Week here.
The view was gorgeous and well captured above by Matt, my photographer husband below.
We have four more days to enjoy the fruits of Newport Beach Restaurant Week.
We reveled in all this evening — Dine Newport Beach for sure!
Though it’s called Newport Beach Restaurant Week, it’s two weeks long — Newport Beach Restaurant Week(s) starts Monday, January 18th and runs through Sunday, January 31st, 2016. It’s the best time to dine out in Newport Beach. During that time many restaurants will be offering prix fixe menus for lunch and dinner. Participating restaurants and menus can be viewed here.
The pictured dishes (from top down) are from four of the restaurants participating in Newport Beach Restaurant Week — Bayside Restaurant, Billy’s At The Beach, Bluewater Grill and Woody’s Wharf.
Nibbles of Tidbits will be attending a special media reception tomorrow at the Balboa Bay Resort to kick off this money saving, tasty annual event — More will be reported here after a few samplings.
Once we select a restaurant (or more), it’s back to beautiful Newport Beach.
Our first meal with Knott’s Berry Farm’s Season Dining Pass was this mega Cheeseburger at Grizzly Creek Lodge in Camp Snoopy. We each had one, though one Cheeseburger could certainly feed two. They gave us a lot of French Fries too. Without the Season Dining Pass, the meal comes with a drink and costs $15.29. We presented our Season Pass Cards and seamlessly received our meals.
The Cheeseburger here is quite thick and large as mentioned, and tastes a little like Salisbury Steak, or the Burgers I used to get in elementary school. There’s something home-y about it. It’s old school tasting and I kind of liked that. It’s not the best Cheeseburger in town and we didn’t expect it to be, but it will suffice. By the end of the year, we will have tried all items available with Knott’s Season Dining Pass. It will be interesting to see if the Burgers at the participating restaurants are the same or different. I hope they will be different, but I suspect they’re the same. We will see.
Season Pass meals are shown with a red fork, spoon and knife in a yellow circle that’s circled in blue.
I like the large condiment bar at Grizzly Creek Lodge, but it may not end up being our first choice to eat, since it’s in Camp Snoopy and there were a lot of screaming kids inside there this day. I may be more of a Cantina girl. The year will tell and so will I. It’ll be an adventurous time at Knott’s.
