Delectable dishes abounded as the Five Crowns in Newport Beach/Corona del Mar celebrates their first 50 years and a start on the second 50 years. The building still exudes the Old World elegance that Lawry’s is famous for and the service is prompt and attentive. Of course, with the Five Crowns being part of the Lawry’s family, meat is the word and they have kept their traditional Prime Rib, Yorkshire Pudding and many other dishes that they are known and loved for. In addition, however, the chefs at the Five Crowns have created some new dishes to showcase the best they have to offer, as well as several new cocktails created by the bartenders at the Five Crowns and their Side Door pub. In addition, they have also been working on one of Orange County’s best wine cellars to come up with some excellent pairings for old and new dishes.
Enjoy the photo essay of some new items that Corporate Executive Chef and Vice President Ryan O’Melveny Wilson treated us to while explaining his concept for new dishes like a Crab and Avocado Mash with Lime Dressing appetizer, as well as “throwback” dishes like Filet Neptune that are updated versions of old classics. In this great weather we are having, take a drive to the beach and plan on capping a nice day on the South Coast with a visit to the Five Crowns. The Five Crowns is located at 3801 E. Coast Highway in Corona del Mar. For info or reservations call 949-760-0331 or go to the Five Crowns website.
