As I reported back in August of last year, it was announced that the second OC location of The Counter will be in Newport Beach at Westcliff Plaza. Now almost a year later, it will finally open next week, Monday, July 19.
Yes, OC, you now have two locations of The Counter at which you can order hundreds of thousands of permutations on the humble hamburger and wash it down with whatever libation you wish to sip from a full bar. And oh yeah, milkshakes.
The Counter, 1104 Irvine Avenue, Newport Beach, CA 92660. Hours are Sunday – Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The restaurant can be reached directly at (949) 642-0700.
