Utilizing seasonal and local ingredients, the menu at Lido Bottle Works changes based on the seasons to showcase fresh dishes that burst with different flavors. Ingredients are sustainably sourced and incorporated throughout different dishes across the menu. The shareable items make decisions easier, allowing guests to try a bit of everything (the pork belly bao buns and cheese and charcuterie board are musts!). Handmade seasonal pastas are a standout entree, which currently includes the Beef Cheek Tagliatelle that’s made with beef cheek, horseradish gremolata and parsnip.

What’s better than a homemade, fresh dinner is pairing it with a craft beer or home-grown California wine. The Lido Bottle Works bottle shop has a selection of over 70 craft beers and world-class wines to pair with your meal. And you don’t have to dine here to browse their selection—stop in and pick up a bottle or pack to take home (ideal for bringing on an electric boat or to the beach).

One of the best locations at Lido Marina Village, Lido Bottle Works is situated harborside with picture-perfect views of the bay. During the day, watch the boats pass by and soak up the sunshine as you enjoy brunch; and at night, sit under the heaters while taking in the dimly lit, moody atmosphere. Eclectic indie music plays throughout the restaurant—nothing beats this vibe! 

Local Insight: The best seat in the house has got to be to the left of the hostess stand—especially for a romantic date night! We recommend requesting it if you can.

4 | Best Brunch Around

The best way to enjoy a weekend in Newport Beach is by brunching with friends or family. Saturday and Sunday starting at 11 a.m., come by LBW for the housemade biscuits with venison gravy, the crab toast or the LBW Brunch Burger. Paired with the prettiest view, this will be the highlight of your weekend.    

5 | Happiest of Hours 

Tuesday to Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., snacks, beer and wine are available for killer prices during happy hour. Hummus and curried beef meatballs are $7 each, and the beer of the week on draft goes for $5. Unwind from a work day with delicious bites and refreshing sips.
