Pelican Grill Restaurant Review

: You know the picturesque coastline of Newport Coast is just down the hill with its crashing waves and cliff-side scenery, but here on Pelican Hill you only see golf greens and the wide blue Pacific in the distance. Situated inside the Pelican Hill Golf Club, Pelican Grill is part upscale golf clubhouse and lounge and part fine dining restaurant. The menu, overseen by chef Chang Sivilay, has numerous items designed to highlight the wood-fire stove, so enjoy lunch by pairing a microbrew with a gourmet pizza or a glass of wine with wood-roasted chicken. Some come here just for the restaurant’s signature spicy tortilla soup, which comes with shredded chicken, cotija cheese and avocado purée. Entrée highlights include the New York steak and fries, salmon served with shiitake-ginger vinaigrette, and the scallop and shrimp duo. You can also bypass the main dining room and head straight into the sophisticated lounge, where you can catch the game on two big screens and watch everyone from Newport’s elite to A-list stars take a breather after a day on the adjacent world-class golf course.
