When someone asks me for a recommendation on a good steak restaurant in Newport Beach, my answer is usually the same every time: A Restaurant.
I’ve dined at A Restaurant several times and absolutely love their steaks– which is saying a lot from someone who prefers salmon over ribeye.
“Over the las few years, we have formed an identitiyof a steak house– steaks are 50 percent of our sales,” A restaurant perner Jordan Otterbein told me recently. “That’s what really defined what we are here.”
Otterbein and his business partner McG are working on a new definition for their latest venture under their company umbrella, RIver Jetty Restaurant Group: An American Dining concept called CdM that is scheduled to open in late summer on Coast Highway where the old Crow Bar and Kitchen used to be.
