Mayor’s Table Pacific Pub + Kitchen

3300 Newport Blvd., Newport Beach, CA 92663

The signature restaurant at Lido House sits exactly on the site of the old Newport Beach City Hall, which explains both the monochromatic sea of mayors’ portraits and the name, Mayor’s Table. And just before the main dining room entrance, you’ll find a circular, swoon-worthy wooden bar with tenders ready to mix and pour. The cocktail program is robust, so expect to be surprised and delighted. For example: A citrus delight featured in-house candied kumquats with NOLET’S Gin, rosemary syrup and a flaming rosemary garnish.
