Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of bistro fare and drinks at Pacific Way Café, which has locations in Newport Coast, Newport Beach, and Costa Mesa.
Pacific Whey Café prepares each of its menu items from scratch using ingredients that are delivered to the restaurants every day. Throughout its kitchens, meat is roasted, bread is baked, and eggs are juggled based on the specific demands of each and every order, ensuring the freshest possible transmission of food to hungry mouths.
Auspicious days and gentlemanly pillow-fight duels begin with good breakfasts, such as the eggs benedict with house-baked pastry and a drizzle of hollandaise ($12.95), or the West Coast omelette with turkey breast, brie, and caramelized onion ($10.95). Gorge on greener fare, such as a Pacific Whey summer salad with medjool dates, red onion, goat cheese, and strawberry vinaigrette ($10.25), or on such substantial stomach stuffers as customized burgers ($8.95+) and bean-free homemade chili, made with succulent slices of filet mignon ($7.95). A carefully chosen posse of potables supplements the cuisine, including specially selected wines and beers to facilitate copious toasting and retoasting.
