USA/West: Laguna Beach, CA
Coastal Canyons of Yesteryear
If cooking food on a deserted island isn’t your cup of tea, choose between Laguna Beach’s many restaurants.
Some of the area’s finest and most expensive dishes are served at the Studio
at the Montage Laguna Beach resort. Chef Craig Strong’s modern French dishes “with California influences” and the restaurant’s panoramic ocean views have dazzled many diners.
Nick’s Laguna Beach
serves prime rib and albacore tuna sandwiches and more substantial fare, including pan-seared Scottish salmon and center-cut filet mignon.
Three meals are served at the Watermarc Restaurant
. The breakfast menu includes such offerings as lemon waffle with mascarpone whipped cream and blueberry gastrique. Dinner entrees include day-boat scallops with sweet pea risotto and smoked pork chop with grilled yams.
For a simple, tasty quick lunch, Sergio’s Empanadas
opened its doors in September 2015. Sergio, who once baked empanadas in a 100-square-foot Long Beach shack before they became a hit at farmer’s markets throughout the region, slays his devotees with empanadas filled with prosciutto and mozzarella or mushrooms, shallots and mozzarella.
