Newport Beach’s Five Crowns Restaurant is to reopen this Thursday, May 19th!

The restaurant has been closed for the past two months for renovation, but now looks to be the area’s popular eatery.  A restaurant in coastal Orange County since 1965, Five Crowns is a replica of a England’s oldest country inn Ye Olde Bell. Read the article on its closing here.

The menu purportedly will be revamped with many signature dishes (except the prime rib) exiting the menu.

“The current look is tired and dated, and a little fussy,” said Ryan Wilson, who recently replaced retiring executive chef Dennis Brask at the Five Crowns. “We’re moving to a more rustic, approachable elegance.”

Wilson is a fourth generation member of restaurant’s owners and operators. The new Five Crowns menu will reflect his seasonally driven culinary training.

“We will print the menu weekly, and the dishes will run every two to four weeks, based on the success of the dish,” Wilson said. “It’s a fairly significant menu overhaul.”

Old favorites will go into rotation on the menu – offered with new presentations when seasonably appropriate.

You can make a reservation to check out the new look and taste of Five Crowns starting this Thursday–but make your reservations now before they’re completely booked!  To make a reservation online, go to
