For dining both indoors and out, the Palm Terrace at Island Hotel Newport Beach has a fresh menu of American cuisine with a fun modern twist. Superb highlights on the menu include executive chef Bill Bracken’s signature dishes, the truffle-infused macaroni and cheese and the potato-crusted sea bass. The restaurant feels both casual and sophisticated. For a breezy al fresco meal, the Palm Terrace has outdoor seating surrounded by palm fronds and greens, an ideal setting for a glass of wine and a small plate of fresh ahi tuna tartare.
