Newport Beach Restaurant Week 2020, the longest-standing restaurant week in Orange County, begins January 13th! This is their 14th year which means they have some big surprises in store! First, Newport Beach Restaurant Week is pairing up with Second Harvest for a great cause. Further, the local food bank aims to raise funds to fight hunger in Orange County.

The Salmon at Back Bay Bistro is a must!


With an extensive list of 74 participating restaurants this year, you’re bound to come across some of our favorites. In the past, we’ve visited Farmhouse, Back Bay Bistro, Five Crowns, and Harborside Restaurant just to name a few. Back Bay Bistro will feature their delicious King Salmon as a main course on the dinner menu again this year. I am still trying to decide which new restaurants I should visit this year!
