With rowdy laughter, the table of 12 next to me starts passing a blow-up adult toy above their heads, an ersatz buxom blonde dressed in a leather two-piece that would make Miley Cyrus blush. Drinks are shaken and stirred, wine is poured, plates of food are set down; another memorable evening has begun at Mr. Peeples. Under the banner of “Seafood Steaks Style,” the newest Midtown attraction is a mammoth and meandering complex of grown-up experiences in the former headquarters of the Boy Scouts of America.

Ship to Shore

The prosciutto bruschetta

Ship to Shore

by Kristen Schott | Photography by Anaïs | Riviera Orange County magazine | October 29, 2013

For me, it’s all about the little things. A restaurant that was founded by friends who outfitted it with pieces from their own collections. A chef with local ties, who is inspired not only by the seasons, but by the weather. A wine list that boasts a well-curated selection of boutique vinos. And that leads me to the big things—like that gorgeous, glass 2,000-bottle wine cellar just behind the bar. Or the cuisine punctuated by flavors that are so distinct and layered that you and your dining guest forget to talk.

Escape for an Unforgettable Night.
