We'll be in Newport Beach (the Hyatt) for a few days next week, maybe without a car, and are looking for a good seafood restaurant. Fresh. Local. Doesn't need to be fancy or swimming in sauces.
Also interested in other local finds. We're clueless, having never been to the area. We like just about everything (except liver) and here in Portland tend to gravitate to small Vietnamese/Thai/Mexican places.
