“Come on babe, why don’t we paint the town…and all that jazz…” Bayside, the critically acclaimed restaurant in Newport Beach launched “All That Jazz” last Friday night. Music lovers of all kinds can come together each Friday night from 10:30 p.m.– 12:30 a.m. Bring your music instrument, grab the microphone and sing your heart out. Whatever it is, you will sure have a great time entertaining or be entertained.
Grab a seat at the table or at the bar and order a couple of drinks. The Late Night Menu features 3 Specially Designed cocktails; Old Blue Eyes Martini (not pictured) – Absolut Hibiskus, Blueberry Simple Syrup, Splash of Cranberry and Squeeze of Lime, All That Jazz Champagne Cocktail (pictured right below) – Mumm Napa and Blood Orange Juice, and King of Cool Cocktail – House Infused Orange Absolut on the Rocks with a Splash of Soda.
The server came around and served every table dinner rolls and a plate of Amuse-bouche (Tuna Tartar, Beef Bruschetta, and Lobster Salad Bruschetta). What a tease!
The Late Night Menu offers quite a few selections from light soup and salads to a heartier Angus Beef Burger. The Cup of Soup (of the night) was Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Bisque.
I am a fan of Greek Salad (Feta, Tomato, Olive, Cucumber). If you just want something light, this is perfect. Also on the menu (not pictured) were Autumn Salad (Organic Grapes, blue Cheese, Pistachios, Balsamic), Olive Medley (Mediterranean), Tomato Burrata Mozzarella (Tomato Medley, Basil Pesto), Roasted Red Beets (Goat Cheese, Endive, Walnuts), and Bresaola Carpaccio (Arugula Salad, Parmesan, Capers).
Lobster lover take note! Don’t miss the Lobster Salad Bruschetta (Haas Avocado). Chunks of lobster in a light dressing with creamy avocado. It was delicious!
The Angus Beef Burger (Bacon, Tomato, Lettuce, Cheddar, Mayo, Ciabatta Bun) was so good! It was quite big, so I recommend sharing.
And we had to try the French Fries (Parmesan, Garlic and Parsley). These were more like Shoe String Fries. Again, portion is quite big, so share.
It was a lot of fun to see so many people just jump in with their instruments and start playing as if they had been playing together for years. I also thought the ladies who sang were all very talented. There were a lot of laughter and great conversation going on. Allen and I really enjoyed the ‘date night’ out!
It was particularly great to see my hostess from Groff-Hinman Inc. again! They always host such great events and Allen and I are so honored to be invited every time!
If you don’t want to travel too far or stay out too late on Friday nights, come on over to Bayside for some great Jazz music and great late night menu. What better way to kick off your weekend? See you there!
