Sweeping ocean and verdant golf course views aren’t the only thing you can come to expect from VIEW – the gorgeously appointed restaurant at Vea Newport Beach’s floating lanai. The chef-driven menu showcases innovative California coastal cuisine with a cosmopolitan perspective, VIEW capitalizes on its locale’s “chic social sanctuary where revelry and relaxation mingle.”
Other defining characteristics include an extensive, eclectic and exemplary wine list of domestic and international varietals, unique craft cocktails (think pumpkin spice martinis), seasonal margaritas and signature starters like crispy confit chicken wings (enhanced with Marshall’s farm honey, mint and togarashi) and a delicately delish tuna crudo with summer vegetables and crispy nori.
Salads arrive as meals unto themselves – seafood aficionados will love the Dungeness crab salad while fans of kale will love the View’s version with candied pecans, Fuji apples, maple vinaigrette and feta.
Entrees range from a flavorful roast chicken on farro and enhanced citrus, sauteed kale and natural demi glaze and pan roasted halibut accompanied by curried cauliflower, carrots and pistachio to the Australian Wagyu sirloin with bone marrow butter, charred greens and truffle fries and the Klingemann Family Farm bone-in pork chop paired with polenta, mustard seeds and crispy pork rinds.
The spicy crab sushi roll is super flavorful with jalapeno yuzu, asparagus and spicy furikake while the Sunset “View” Roll improves upon the traditional California roll with fresh salmon, Hiramasa yellowtail, trout roe and green curry aioli.
Relish in all-day dining, live music and a charismatic indoor/outdoor scene where light bites are paired with tableside martinis, savor signature sushi rolls or indulge in a decadent multi-course meal … no matter what time of day you choose to linger … you’re all but guaranteed a meal in idyll.
