DivBar Smokehouse Barbeque Brings BBQ To New Levels

DivBarSlidersThere’s nothing quite like great barbeque and DivBar offers modern twists on old favorites.

“Smokin’ good food,” touts new DivBar Smokehouse Barbeque in Newport Beach, a harborside spot with riotous decor. Start with a Spam slider or pulled-pork slider or the mac ‘n’ cheese with Taleggio cheese, crushed truffles and Parmesan tuile that opening chef Bill Bracken used to serve at the Peninsula Beverly Hills. For the duck fries, smoked duck and roasted shallot aioli top perfectly crisped fried russet chunks. Slow-smoked meats including tri-tip, short ribs and brisket burnt ends get top billing, but the broasted chicken should—order a pail for the table! Finish with the chocolate-peanut butter bread pudding. DivBar is set back from Coast Highway; look for the giant chicken on the roof. 2601 W. Coast Hwy., Newport Beach, 949.675.7427. divbar.com
