Newport Beach’s newest waterfront culinary destination, Lighthouse Bayview Café, is pleased to debut new winter menus for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, incorporating fresh flavor profiles and unique interpretations of classic dishes just in time for their second anniversary. The winter dinner menu also welcomes new nightly specials, courtesy of Executive Chef Ryan Sumner. The new menus unveil as the restaurant nears its milestone one-year anniversary in December 2016.
The Lighthouse Bayview Café winter dinner menu highlights Chef Sumner’s newest creations including a seafood ceviche with a “virgin mary mix,” sautéed brussels sprouts with Spanish chorizo, cioppino in a spiced tomato lobster broth and red wine braised short rib with parsnip puree, oyster mushrooms, horseradish and gremolata.
Each night of the week, Chef Sumner presents a menu of select specials starting at just $7.95. Features include an all-night happy hour to take the edge off of Mondays with brats and beers, crispy fish taco Tuesdays, burger and beer Wednesdays, linguini and clams on Thursdays, fresh catch of the day on Fridays, rosemary roasted prime rib Saturdays, and Chef’s special BBQ dinner on Sundays.
“Growing up in my parents’ market in Costa Mesa, I experienced firsthand the seasonal change of fresh ingredients,” commented Executive Chef Sumner. ”My inspiration for the winter menus came from that early education and the beach and boating culture here in Newport. And the nightly specials are for the locals.”
The winter lunch menu features new items like the “all grown up” grilled cheese with melted muenster, smoked gouda and parmesan on sourdough paired with creamy basil tomato soup. Brunch goes big with decadent offerings like the banana pecan bread pudding French toast topped with a salted caramel drizzle and whipped cream. The menu’s newest cocktail, the Buddy’s Bloody, is an oversized mason jar bloody mary with all the fixings, inspired by a legendary Newport Beach Lifeguard whose decorated career spanned 47 years.
Newport Beach welcomed Lighthouse Bayview Café to the new Marina Park on December 9, 2015. Since opening, the restaurant has offered breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week with happy hours Monday through Friday and brunch on Saturday and Sunday. The waterfront destination boasts outdoor dining, breathtaking views, dock ‘n’ dine capabilities for boaters, and full service catering year round.
Lighthouse Bayview Café is uniquely located on the waterfront of Balboa Peninsula’s Marina Park within a 24,000-square foot sailing and community center that encompasses a park and multiple picnic areas adjacent to a 23-slip marina. The Café features a dock space for boaters to access the park from the water. Offering guests 180-degree harbor, mountain and city views, access to the sand, the Café’s modern beach ambiance and innovative menus are distinctive and unmatched on the Balboa Peninsula.
Located at 1600 W. Balboa Blvd, Newport Beach, CA 92663.
