Corona Del Mar, CA 92625
OC Weekly's 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."
Tips from foursquare
Try the Beef Fat Fries! They're crisp, of course, like any fries, but then there's the unmistakable flavor of beefiness, almost imperceptible at first, then asserting itself as the aftertaste. Yum!

Look for the big red key on Poppy, enter and try the cheese and charcuterie. Ask the waiter what to pair it with
My goodness, my Guinness, since 1759!!! Happy St. Paddy's Day!!!
