Best thing I ate: Could this fish be 2019’s dish of the year?

Date : 22 Mar, 2019

Funny thing about the rainbow trout at The Cannery, a nice seafood restaurant in Newport Beach. At lunchtime, for $34, it’s the most expensive thing on the menu. That same trout at dinnertime, however, is still $34, which is by far the cheapest of several very nice fish entrees. That might seem like a lot of money for a piece of trout, but trust me: This is an extraordinary little fish.

Secret Sips in Newport Beach

Date : 18 Oct, 2019

The Snug Bar at was featured in Secret Sips in Newport Beach, from Visit Newport Beach: OK—we wouldn’t necessarily call Snug Bar a speakeasy, mainly because it doesn’t really try to hide its existence. That said, it still has all the trappings of an underground drinking destination. A secret location? Check. The Snug Bar is snuggly tucked away underneath The Cannery, and offers a quiet reprieve from the upstairs hustle and bustle. A warm and welcoming ambiance? Check. Bartenders who really know their stuff? Check. The place has killer libations—like the Cool Down, which is made with vodka, elderflower, cucumber, lime and soda, as well as...

Next, for appetizers, you cannot go wrong with their oysters. They are some of the freshest oysters in all of Orange county and keep me coming back to The cannery over again.

75 Best Places to Eat in Orange County - 2016

Date : 26 Jun, 2016

The Cannery was pleased to be named #10 of the 75 Best Places to Eat in Orange County, 2016 by OC Register Food Critic, Brad A. Johnson. Brad's take: Located on the water’s edge in Newport Harbor, The Cannery is Orange County’s best seafood restaurant. Chef Nick Weber makes pasta carbonara with lobster, but instead of bacon he uses bonito flakes to achieve a beguilingly smoky undertone. He serves raw scallops with flying fish roe and coconut milk. He slow-poaches abalone, then finishes it over oak charcoal before folding it into a velvety sea-urchin bisque. Octopus, too, benefits from the fire. A tangle of tentacles delivers a powerful escabeche-style blast of...

75 Best Places to Eat in Orange County

Date : 3 Aug, 2015

The Cannery was recently named one of the best places to eat in Orange County. Located on the water’s edge in Newport Harbor, The Cannery is a seafood restaurant where chef Nick Weber takes full advantage of a wood-burning grill. He slow-poaches abalone, sous-vide style, so that it becomes remarkably tender, then finishes it over oak charcoal before folding it into a velvety sea-urchin bisque along with light, creamy gnocchi and lumps of sweet potato. Octopus, too, benefits from the fire. A tangle of tentacles in varying shapes and sizes delivers a powerful escabeche-style blast of vinegar and sinus-clearing, tongue-numbing chili. The bouillabaisse, crab cakes, tuna tartare, grilled ...


Eye on O.C.: Helping our heroes

Date : 2 Aug, 2015

The Cannery was recently featured in The O.C. Register: All decked out with American flags and bunting, the Cannery in Newport Beach looked ready for a political speech. Instead, the patriotic decor was designed to inspire guests to help veterans, but it was the speakers themselves, including actor Gary Sinise, who rallied supporters to open their hearts and their wallets for R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence & Supporting Empowerment), an organization dedicated to helping severely wounded soldiers.


Review: Chef Nick Weber revives The Cannery

Date : 1 Aug, 2015

Chef Nick Weber was recently featured in the O.C. Register: Halibut rarely gets the respect it deserves. It's a fish that too often gets misunderstood as boring. But in the hands of a skilled chef, like Nick Weber at The Cannery, the lowly halibut becomes a thing of unparalleled beauty, a perfect companion to precious truffles (on the tail end of their fleeting season).
