Ever since Whole Foods in Newport Beach opened up a couple years ago, I was curious about Back Bay Tavern. The reviews were never that hot, but since I was in the area, I asked my husband to join me there for lunch.
Steak, Steamed Veggies and Beans
I ordered my steak med-rare but what I got was more like a rare!! It hardly had any sear, it was very rare in the middle and had no seasoning. As I took my first bite, I knew I had to send it back. It took a while to get the correct version back and since my husband was already done with his lunch, I packed it to go. The steamed veggies were fine, but a little boring. The beans were the only flavorful part of the meal.
Fish and Chips
I noticed a lot of people were getting this dish. I guess it is the best value in their menu. The fish were a little heavy in the batter front. The fries were fine, but nothing special. I guess if you are starving and want a big dish, this one is for you.
Considering the quality and prices we will not be coming back.
