It’s time for another installation of OC Restaurant Week Spotlight. If you missed the first restaurant, Pizzeria Ortica, check it out here.
The next restaurant I wanted to feature was one I recently discovered this past winter – Tommy Bahama’s Island Grille.
Tommy Bahama’s is best known for their Hawaiian shirts, but they also have a great restaurant as well. There are two locations in Orange County – one in Laguna Beach and one in Newport Beach and both locations are participating in this year’s restaurant week. Each location is also offering slight variations to their prixe fixe menus, so why not have lunch in Newport and dinner in Laguna?
After looking at the menus for both locations, I realized they are offering a deal that really can’t be beat. For lunch you get an appetizer (get the coconut shrimp), an entree and a dessert for only $15! The lunch items at both locations are pretty fantastic too, ranging from an organic chicken salad to fish tacos and a brie chicken sandwich.
If you can’t make it to Tommy Bahama’s for lunch, then be sure to check out their prixe fixe dinner menu for only $30 (also a great deal). Choose from an appetizer, an entree (both locations have their famous pork ribs on the menu for dinner) and a decadent dessert. I personally favor the pina colada cake.
A single entree at Tommy Bahama’s Island Grille can run anywhere from $13-$30, so this is definitely a deal you do not want to pass up.
