NEWPORT BEACH — Fans of Mozambique Steakhouse and Lounge in Laguna Beach will soon be able to partake in the African-inspired fare at a new eatery here, a company spokeswoman said Monday.
The fast-casual concept, also called Mozambique, will open in late November at The Bluffs shopping center on Bison Avenue in Newport Beach.
The restaurant will offer indoor and patio seating, spokeswoman Lisa Ende said.
"One of the fast-growing trends, especially with the economy as it is, is the fast-casual dining segment," she said. "Customers can enjoy a restaurant-type experience with high-quality food, but not at the price like you would expect at an upscale restaurant."
Entrées, such as peri-peri chicken, peri-peri shrimp, roti wraps, curry dishes and salads — which average between $15 and $25 at the Laguna restaurant — will cost $6 to $10 at the Newport location.
Portions will be smaller, but the flavors and the quality will be the same, Ende said.
