Executive Chef David Shofner brings imaginative and globally inspired dishes to Fable & Spirit, which recently opened in Newport Beach’s Lido Marina. “My lunch menu focuses on fresh ingredients and bold flavors while accommodating those looking for something satisfying and innovative on their lunch break, to those wanting a more leisurely, relaxed lunch,” explains Chef Shofner. “Ours is an honest approach to cooking – all of our ingredients are highly seasonal and carefully sourced to present the freshest, most flavorful dishes.”

Chef Shofner is making everything from pastas and breads, to bacon and pickles from-scratch, and the menus feature dishes from the rotisserie and a wood-fire grill. His audience-driven menu is meant to satisfy the wide range of palates that frequent the restaurants.

Fable & Spirit’s lunch menu features a selection of sharable dishes, including its now-famous Guinness Brown Bread, served with kerrygold butter, clover honey, and Jacobsen sea salt. A selection of fresh salads includes a flavorful Kale Caesar with black garlic, cherry tomatoes, capers, pepitas, parmesan and croutons; an Heirloom Beet Salad with wild rocket, Humboldt fog, hazelnuts, balsamic reduction and smoked salt; and a seasonal Chopped Salad with crispy buttermilk chicken breast.

Lunch also features a variety of sandwiches, including a Coal Roasted Eggplant Lavash Wrap with hummus, harissa, kalamatas, pickled red onion, feta, romaine and cucumber cumin crema; Crispy Chicken with gochujang aioli and pickled Serrano slaw; the decadent Fable Burger with house-ground beef, American cheese, caramelized onion, pork belly and duck fat fried egg or simply an All-American Classic Burger; and a Rotisserie Porchetta Sandwich with pistachio pesto, calabrian chili, roasted broccolini on a French roll and served with house-made potato chips.

Chef Shofner also offers larger plate options, including a Cracked Pepper Bucatini with manila clams, pancetta, Parmesan and smoked-cured egg yolk; Fish & Chips with Icelandic cod flown in fresh and hand-cut fries; and Prime Flat Iron Frites with pickled red fresno chili, sweet onion, toybox tomato, queso anejo and soy reduction.

Fable & Spirit is located at 3441 Via Lido in Newport Beach and is open daily for Lunch 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Dinner 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. (Brunch service to be introduced in the coming weeks).
