Where can I go for a casual birthday dinner near Newport? I have lived here all my life and am no longer interested in trendy, overpriced restaurants with attitude! No scenes, please. My husband loves red meat and I eat only fish and vegetarian. A well priced California wine list is greatly appreciated, so is friendly, professional service. Has anyone tried 118 degrees in Costa Mesa? Not sure the husband will be able to survive w/o the meat! Suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
