As we said yesterday, the time we spent in Newport Beach, CA at the A Market & A Restaurant was pretty amazing. We were not only impressed with the ambiance and style of each place, but we were also incredibly impressed with the fantastic chefs we had the pleasure of working with. Here, Culinary Director Shelly Register shares her delicious Mixed Berry Fig Bar Recipe. These are truly a delight and an across-the-board crowd pleaser. We highly recommend you give them a go, your friends and family will thank you.
