On our recent trip back to Newport Beach, CA, we met friends at the bar at Rothschild’s for happy hour. It was a cold and rainy day. The restaurant was cozy and romantic. The happy hour menu was amazing at great prices. We ordered ahi and steak bites. They were incredible. My only regret is that we didn’t frequent this cozy little restaurant while we lived in Newport Beach. We had so many favorite, go-to places that we didn’t explore more. And a funny thing…the owner for the last 40+ years is from Germany…same place my boyfriend is from. They hit it off right away. I am sad to think we really missed out while not venturing off of other favorites. Lesson learned….there is always room for more favorites.
