Fable & Spirit’s New ‘Fable Express’ Menu


In response to the latest restrictions put on restaurants throughout the region, Fable & Spirit has added another level of excitement to its culinary arsenal with the introduction of Fable Express, a fast-casual takeaway service featuring a charcoal-fired Yakitori grill. Executive Chef David Shofner and his kitchen crew delight all of the senses with a culinary performance on the restaurant patio Wednesday through Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., when the Fable Express menu is offered for takeaway.

“Our new Yakitori skewers highlight chicken, beef, seafood and vegetables, all of which are grilled to order over charcoal,” explained Chef Shofner, whose globally inspired dishes earned the restaurant inclusion in the most recent Michelin Guide list of Inspector Discoveries. “Guests can watch as their skewers are slow-cooked over a specially designed charcoal grill that allows the meat to remain juicy while developing a crust that's perfectly browned with just the slightest hint of char.”

The following Yakitori skewers are available a la carte, with orders of two or more served with coconut-ginger fried rice, kimchi pickles, and tare dipping sauce (sweet & salty or spicy).

Prime Ribcap  $6
Pork Belly  $5
Octopus  $6
Chicken Thigh  $5
Wild White Shrimp  $6
Vegetable  $4
(Mushroom, Sweet Onion, Red Bell Pepper)

The Fable Express menu also features fresh salads and lighter starters, such as a Kale Romaine Caesar; Citrus Salad with Blood Orange, Ruby Red Grapefruit, and Cara Cara Orange; and Thai-inspired Cold-Smoked Yellowfin. Other crowd favorites include a Classic Double Cheeseburger, Crispy Chicken Sandwich, Colorado Lamb Burger, and Chef Shofner’s noted Fish & Chips – all of which are executed with the same focus on fresh ingredients and bold flavors for which Fable & Spirit has become known.

To complete the Fable Express takeaway experience, guests may order from a selection of beer, wine, craft cocktails and hot apple cider. The Fable Express menu can be found online at Orders may be placed in person or in advance for curbside pick-up by calling 949-409-9913.

Fable & Spirit is located at 3441 Via Lido in Newport Beach and current hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information about the restaurant menu and contactless curbside pick-up, please visit
