A Restaurant in Newport Beach, California, has a long history that dates back to the 1920s. Originally a roadside diner, A Restaurant was given its name by an 8-year-old child named Victor, who won a local newspaper contest to provide the restaurant with its name. Over the years, A Restaurant has undergone many changes. From being a classic diner to becoming a mainstay for celebrities during the 40s, 50s, and 60s, when it specialized in steak and seafood, and even becoming well known for French cuisine during the 70s, A Restaurant has always been dedicated to providing the best food and service.
