GIVING TO LOCAL SCHOOLS
Bella Bleu in Costa Mesa, a popular boutique for affordable fashion trends, is giving back to local schools with two events on Saturday. At "Product Runway," from 9 to 10 a.m., Bella Bleu will be mentoring students from Orange County FIDM by teaching them small business and visual merchandising skills. And, they're holding a contest for each girl to style a mannequin in the store's windows.
The second event benefits Newport Harbor High School with 10% of sales going to the Newport Harbor Dance Team. At 2 p.m., a fashion show and dance presentation starts with eight girls from the Varsity Dance Team. Customers can enjoy champagne and snacks too. Bella Bleu is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Bella Bleu is at 333 East 17th St. For more information, call (949) 722-2538.
HIP PITA JOINT
Pita Jungle, the newest restaurant in Newport Beach dedicated to the art of eating healthy, specializes in made from scratch Mediterranean dishes with a twist. The Arizona-based, award-winning eatery is already a local favorite for those looking for a sit-down health conscious restaurant with fair prices, and a full bar.
We're loving the artistic hip interior, from the glazed concrete flooring, exposed white ceiling, repurposed table stands, to the second-hand chairs and stunning resin art panel. It's hard to believe this once housed a Blockbuster Video store.
The extensive menu covers special diets like vegan and vegetarian options, and be sure to try the chicken tikka masala in coconut masala served over brown rice with fresh pea sprouts; cilantro jalapeño hummus with pita; wood-fired fresh salmon with garlic mashed potatoes and wilted spinach; and our favorite pizzas: the chipotle chicken lavosh pizza; and roasted garlic and portobella pizza with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, feta cheese, basil, herbs, Kalamata olives and parmigiano reggianno cheese.
Other choices include hot and cold pita sandwiches, composed salads, healthy burgers, combination plates, wood-fired pizza, pita wraps and specials.
Daily happy hour, from 3 to 6 p.m., offers specials on tapas and drinks. Pita Jungle, at 1200 Bison Ave., is open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. For more information, call (949) 706-7711, or visit http://www.pitajungle.com.
