Nieuport 17 Restaurant for Brunch

nieuport-17-034Nieuport 17 is in Lafayette Plaza at Newport Avenue and Irvine Boulevard in Tustin, cheap California.  We nieuport-17-037love love love this restaurant.  It is owned by former naval aviator Bill Bettis.   The restaurant has always been a lifelong dream of his.  It began after Bill’s college days at USC and his flying career.  His restaurant is set in the warm atmosphere of a Tyrolean hunting lodge. Think cozy and luxurious.

nieuport-17-035It has been the perfect setting for many memorable nights in our household.  Besides, sovaldi sale they pour a mean cocktail.  The Kir Royal and Gin n’ Tonic are our usual suspects.  DH orders the Surf and Turf.  While I can’t choose anything except the Peppercorn Steak.  Add a lovely wine list and lets take a taxi home. Good times … always.

When we discovered our favorite nugget of a restaurant was now featuring Brunch.  We made reservations.  Immediately.  Here are a few captures of our lovely morning with the entire tribe. $29 for Adults, $20 for 12 and under.  Bottomless Champagne is only $9 more. Can I get a hallelujah?

nieuport-17-003What is a Nieuport 17 you ask?

It is a French hi-wing fighter plane in which many allied flyers became aces during WWII.  Seeing how Bill aces all aspects of his restaurant, I would not be surprised if Bill was a flying ace too.  Cannot wait to go back again.
