Huntington Beach, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Recently named one of 2018’s Great Places To Work, Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, the casual dining restaurant known for its handcrafted American food and drink, will open its doors to the Newark community on November 12 at 11am. The new Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar is located near the Newpark Mall at 3100 Newpark Mall.
Lazy Dog’s menu focuses on elevated dishes that highlight carefully picked seasonal ingredients, as well as handcrafted cocktails and select beers from local breweries. Each restaurant welcomes guests into a warm ambiance that celebrates the majestic scenery and artisan authenticity of the Rocky Mountains. The source of this inspiration comes from founder and CEO Chris Simms, hoping to replicate the time his family spends in Wyoming each year enjoying homemade meals and fireside conversation. Lazy Dog also offers brunch on the weekends, daily happy hour and late-night offerings.
“We are thrilled to join the Newark community and bring our style of hospitality and delicious food to the neighborhood,” said Chris Simms. “The team, the guests, and the community are the reason why we do what we do – to offer a dining experience that feels like family. We are excited to open our doors and introduce the Newark community to Lazy Dog.”
The menu, crafted by Co-founder, Gabe Caliendo, is dedicated to authentic, homemade cuisine is showcased on every plate, and served with warm caring service in a rustic social setting. The Lazy Dog menu features small plates such as the crispy deviled eggs and roasted winter vegetables, entrees such as spaghetti squash and beetballs, a vegetarian take on the Italian favorite, apple sage pork chops, pb & j burger and desserts including a seven-layer chocolate cake for those who are gluten sensitive, pumpkin pie cheesecake and apple-huckleberry open face pie, all house made.
To complement the food, Lazy Dog’s bar program features a variety of handcrafted cocktails from the Meyer Lemon Margarita with small-batch Lunazul tequila and house brewed Lazy Dog exclusive beer like the Tilted Saddle Saison.
Designed to feel like a Rocky Mountain Wyoming escape, Lazy Dog’s grand interior will be complete with lodge-inspired furnishings such as cozy fireplaces, ledge stone, a chandelier crafted from Aspen logs, and artwork reminiscent of the Cowboy State. Multiple flat-screen TVs will be installed throughout the bar and patio areas so that guests may cheer on their favorite sports teams, and a dog-friendly patio will offer a special menu for dogs featuring grilled meats and brown rice.
Beer lovers in Newark can also join Lazy Dog’s new beer club – created by beer lovers for beer lovers. Each quarter, LD Beer Club members pick up a kit with hard to find craft beers, custom merch and more. When dining at Lazy Dog, club members also get to take advantage of draft beer upgrades on select beers. Visit Ldbeerclub.com to be in the know.
