SideDoor

3801 E. Coast Highway Corona Del Mar, CA 92625 | Corona Del Mar | 949-717-4322

Location Description:

This latest gastropub in Corona del Mar is an adjunct to Five Crowns, part of the Lawry's Restaurant empire (yes, the one synonymous with prime rib). Charcuterie is its point of pride, but sometimes the chef, who splits his duties with the tonier Five Crowns next door, will do his Irish lamb stew, a tiny pot of chunky meat, potatoes and carrots. It seems appropriate to wash it down with a foamy glass of Guinness. They, of course, have it on tap along with all manner of alcohol, from a microbrew by Placentia's the Bruery to absinthe. This gastropub lives up to the "pub" part of the term as much as it does the "gastro."
