The Dock restaurant in Newport Beach
« on: December 24, 2009, 04:39:00 PM »
The nine-month-old restaurant in Newport Beach's quaint Cannery Village is positively magical on a winter night. Warm firelight and hushed conversation make this open dining area feel cozy, as docked boats bob quietly in the water outside. The menu is as casually elegant as the setting, with everything from waterfront classics such as crab cakes and scallops to tender braised short ribs that take two days to prepare.

The Dock is actually a reincarnation of Le Quai ("The Dock" in French) ? an upscale French bistro that seasoned restaurateurs Dennis and Christine Overstreet operated at the same location until about 2005. The Overstreets' second take is more laid back than its fancier predecessor, offering classic American fare with Mediterranean influences and more moderately priced choices sprinkled throughout the menu.

This is the same husband and wife pair who founded Overstreet's Wine Merchant & Bar and who, at one point, bought and ran the fine dining restaurant Aubergine. Dennis Overstreet, a sommelier, also owns and operates a wine boutique in Beverly Hills called The Wine Merchant.
