Bayside Restaurant is holding a month-long fundraiser to benefit the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Executive Chef Paul Gstrein has crafted a special menu available all month long with a portion of the proceeds earmarked for those impacted by the storm. Bayside also will accept checks and other forms of payment for the American Red Cross/Hurricane Harvey fund. Bayside owner Marc Ghoukassian said that many of his staff have friends and family living in the Houston area who have been displaced from their homes and are in need of help.
Bayside is a contemporary dining establishment overlooking the tranquil waters of Newport Harbor. Gstrein has crafted an extensive award-winning menu emphasizing fresh seafood. The 246-seat restaurant features design elements that showcase an ever-evolving fine art exhibition and the interior offers favorable lighting, state-of-the-art acoustics and a generous use of Macassar ebony, a rare wood from Indonesia. The wrap-around patio comes with built-in heaters and sun drapes and its large windows offer breathtaking views of the harbor. Live entertainment is offered nightly and during Champagne Sunday brunch in the bar/lounge and on Fridays, from 10 p.m. to midnight, live jazz and a dedicated small plates menu are offered. Reservations can be made by calling 949-721-1222 and visit www.BaysideRestaurant.com for more info.
