SHOR American Seafood Grill, Newport Beach, CA

SHOR American Seafood Grill Restaurant Review

: Located a mile from the ocean, SHOR does a nice job of bringing coastal ambience inside, utilizing bright white interiors and an open, airy space to detach from a typical hotel restaurant vibe. The place isn’t shy about emphasizing its relationships with purveyors and connection with fresh, local ingredients; a large black chalkboard in the dining room proudly showcases where products are sourced. We like chef Jonathan Solis’ take on Carlsbad mussels, steamed and served with house tasso ham and a long slice of garlic bread already nestled at the bottom of the bowl. Steaks, pork and chicken are offered to keep the mains from being completely waterlogged, and they are prepared with your own choice of seasonings and house-made sauces. Solis also prepares the desserts, highlighted by the strawberry rhubarb with buttermilk ice cream. Thirsty, but not too thirsty? The wine list thoughtfully offers half and three-quarter carafes, in addition to glasses and bottles. Lunch features burgers, sandwiches and lighter seafood fare. In the morning, the breakfast crowd can come in and enjoy several traditional and regional Latin dishes like huevos rancheros and chilaquiles.
