The Annual OC Restaurant Week is fast approaching. It officially kicks off on Feb. 23rd and runs through March 1st.
Now, OC Restaurant Week can be intimidating, in and of itself. TWENTY EIGHT cities are participating in the event … I bet you didn’t even know there were 28 cities in Orange County . . . with more than 600 specially-priced menus available for the trying. So I’m just going to focus on where you’re likely to find the best food anywhere: Laguna Beach!
This year, Restaurant Week in Laguna Beach has 18 of our finest restaurants participating with a total of 24 specially-priced menus to help you gorge yourself through the entire week (Feb. 23rd – March 1st). This is Laguna’s way of introducing you to restaurants you’ve not yet tried, return to restaurants that are on your perennial favorites list, and even venture into restaurants you’ve never heard about here in our lovely burg.
All during Restaurant Week in Laguna Beach, choose from a bevy of prix fixe menu lunches and dinners that offer a set number of courses for as little as $10 – $40 per person, which averages to about a 40-50% savings from regular priced courses at said restaurants.
As an example, enjoy a 3-course lunch menu at Chef Fune’s award-winning Splashes for just $20/person. Venture into Maro Grill for lunch at $15/person or dinner at $40/person. Or, try a $10 lunch menu at GG’s Bistro, The Lumberyard, Royal Thai or more.
It’s a cuisine cornucopia.
As you can imagine, seats fill quickly, and were not alone here. Because Laguna Beach is renowned for its cuisine, we have hundreds of “outsiders” flocking into Laguna Beach to try our fare (and we do love our outsiders). It’s MUCH smarter to contact these restaurants NOW for a reservation as I can assure you – you’re not going to have a lot of luck just trying to walk-in (especially for dinner) in any of the restaurants participating in Restaurant Week in Laguna Beach.
OK. I hope I made myself very clear on that. In fact, I’m going to be even clearer by giving you the phone numbers for each of the restaurants participating in Restaurant Week in Laguna Beach. If you would be so kind, please mention that you saw them mentioned in LagunaBeachBest.com – much appreciated.

Mosaic at the Montage Resort Laguna Beach (this is the fantastic outdoor restaurant and bar by the pool. Mosaic just took honors in my upcoming 2014 book of Laguna Beach’s Best for the best breakfast sandwich in town. It is ungodly. You’ll find the rest of the food here to be of the same ilk.) – (949) 715-6020
