This restaurant is in the Corona del Mar section of Newport Beach and is located near where Mac Arthur ends at PCH. Itís small with a new decor. Itís a bit dark on the inside (the menu was hard to read). The food is a tad pricey and on the yuppy side. Their beer selection was very good.
The menu and tap changes, so look here

Visited this place as part of an outing with some coworkers and clients. Itís a rather small restaurant in the Newport/Corona del Mar area. That means a couple things if youíre not familiar with the area: parking sucks and shit is expensive. Your best bet is to park in the lot of the shopping center across the street, though that may not be totally legit. But you can wander in to the Bristol Farms for another place tick if you want.
This is typically sort of a beer dead zone, so I was not really sure what to expect in that regard. The selection is actually pretty solid. The tap list was a bit on the mediocre side but they had some decent stuff from Craftsman, Allagash, Avery, Unibroue, Hitachino, and some of the Orange County breweries. The bottle list is really quite solid, though. Almanac sour beers, Prairie barrel aged stuff...wat? Okay, not too bad. The problem is that a typical pour of a draft beer will cost you at least $10. LOL out loud @ that.
The food is good, but itís definitely upscale for your typical bar food, which is fine...but the prices match not only the better nature of the food, but of the overall trend of the area. Iíd personally only ever come here if I wasnít picking up the check.

Friday 11th July 2014 and five of us are booked in for meal. The place was heaving and we eventually get one of the tables downstairs in the cool, quieter cellar. Upstairs the noisy crowd carry on with busy staff rushing around them. Modern and slick joint with prices to make your eyes water, our beers, food and wines were all top draw though, so no complaints, just an empty bank balance. Interesting tap list with good mix of local, out of state and international beers on offer, did not really check out the bottle selection, but it was large and along with tap choices filled the back of the huge menu card.

Nice location on PCH in an upscale area. Parking can get a little creative (finding spots in a residential area behind the restaurant). We had the Chorizo pizza which was a flatbread style and was quite good. Paired that with a tap offering of Pliny the elder (always good ; ) The on tap beer selection was good and menu had enough variety to keep most happy. Iíd definitley come here again!

One of my favorite places when I was working close-by. Features a good rotation tap selection, but I usually went to the bottles. Bottles are not marked up too much and feature a good selection. Food is great. Flatbreads and burgers are awesome. Seasonal fare is amazing too - the pretzels last fall were to die for. My favorite gastropub.
