After celebrating its milestone one-year Anniversary on December 9, Lighthouse Bayview Café will continue to celebrate the holiday season during the 108th Annual Newport Beach Boat Parade. Throughout the Christmas Boat Parade schedule December 14-18, Lighthouse Bayview Café will offer diners a special 3-course prix fixe menu courtesy of Executive Chef, Ryan Sumner, paired with the perfect view of the parade as it passes through the harbor.
The Lighthouse 3-course prix fixe menu starts with a choice of albacore sashimi, garlic hummus or fried calamari with chili orange sauce. Main course selections feature stout beer braised short ribs with wild mushroom and pea polenta, gremolata, pan roasted sole with winter beans and potato puree, or a maple glazed pork chop served with caramelized apple puree, roasted root vegetables and chili apple gastrique. Dessert finishes strong with a choice of cinnamon sugar beignets filled with cream cheese icing or chocolate cake s’mores-style with toasted meringue, graham cracker streusel and whipped cream.
Offering a dining experience enjoyable for the entire family, the children’s menu features mac ’N’ cheese, choice of cheeseburger or fish and chips followed by tasty chocolate cookie, all served on a cafeteria-style compartment tray.
To kick off the five nights of celebration, The Lighthouse Bayview Café will be participating in Marina Park’s holiday celebration December 14. Hosting a special Lighthouse booth during the day’s festivities, mini Lighthouse Burger sliders (vegetarian option available) and warm cinnamon sugar beignets will be available for purchase.
Also during the parade, the Lighthouse Bayview Café is pleased to provide catering for the Official Grand Marshal Boat on all five evenings of the celebration. “We are so grateful to be able to participate in this year’s boat parade in such a special way. Creating unique dishes for the Grand Marshal Mickey Mouse and his guests will be an amazing way for our team to celebrate the season at the very front of the Newport Beach Boat Parade,” remarked Executive Chef Ryan Sumner.
