Mutt’s Eastbluff has reinvented its weekend OC Restaurant brunch with all-new dishes and drinks. The Newport Beach hotspot loved by locals for its welcoming atmosphere, larger-than-life Schooners of beer, and eclectic-yet-approachable American cuisine has a new culinary team bringing savory eats, sweet treats, and lively morning libations to its popular weekend menus.
As residents of Eastbluff themselves, husband-and-wife owners Alex and Meghan Murray created Mutt’s to serve as a central gathering place for their community. Now in their second year, the duo continues to build upon their restaurant’s popularity and success with all-new offerings at brunch. Available Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m., Mutt’s now boasts a menu of reimagined brunch favorites.
Savory breakfast classics are given a fresh look with beautifully plated dishes including, Avocado Toast topped with cherry tomatoes, lemon pepper, and a drizzle of EVOO; Chilaquiles con Huevos tossed in green or red sauce with caramelized onions, cotija cheese, and guacamole; and a Smoked Salmon Benedict layered with sauteed spinach, hollandaise sauce, and a perfectly poached egg. Sweet offerings include cinnamon-sugar dusted Fun Buns, decadent French Toast topped with fresh seasonal berries, and fluffy stacks of Buttermilk Pancakes griddled with options including banana, chocolate chips, berries, and more.
In addition to its menu of breakfast classics, its brunch menu will also offer signature lunchtime dishes, including Mutt’s famous full-sized Pterodactyl Wings, flavor-forward salads, hearty burgers and sandwiches, and build-your-own pizzas available in three sizes.
Guests can look forward to a lively lineup of morning libations, including a Wake & Bake Old Fashioned with bourbon and cold brew, a Mutthound with vodka and grapefruit juice, and classics like the Espresso Martini, Aperol Spritz, and Bottomless Mimosas.
Tucked away in Newport Beach’s Eastbluff Village center, the restaurant has become both a local hotspot and a surprising secret haven for several celebrities. Regular David Spade even has a pizza named after his iconic comedy, Joe Dirt.
On the heels of its 2nd Anniversary in April, the restaurant was honored with the 2022 title of ‘Best Upscale Cocktail Bar’ in the LuxLife Restaurant & Bar Awards. Now, the Murrays eye expansion for additional locations in Orange County. Each Mutt’s location will celebrate its respective community with distinct decor and menu items that reflect unique elements of the town and its history.
