Birthday Dinner in Laguna Beach
I am looking to take my boyfriend out to dinner for his birthday in the Laguna Beach/CDM?Newport/Dana Point area. I want to take him somewhere with for a great three course meal. I don't eat fish, so I need somewhere that isn't primarily seafood. I know that Sapphire, Port and Landmark are already booked for Monday night. Any suggestions?
Does he like steak? When my wife asked me I said take me to Mastros Ocean Club.
First course- Grey Goose Martini w/ three blue cheese stuffed olives.
Second Course- Caviar w/ blenis, capers & creme fraiche
Third Course- Bottle of Dominus
Fourth Course- Seafood Tower w/ crab claws, oysters & shrimp.
Fifth Course- Wedge Salad w/ blue cheese dressing and vinaigrette one the side.
Sixth Course- Bone-in Rib Eye -medium rare/room temp plate.
And of course Gorganzola Mac & Cheese, Sugar Snap Peas & Sauteed Mushrooms.
And to finish off...Butter Cake w/ a side of fresh berries and a glass of 18 year old Macallan.
If you don't mind heading north to Costa Mesa, Turner New Zealand is terrific. They are a all-organic fine dining establishment. The meat is fantastic. Location: 650 Anton Blvd
Costa Mesa, CA 92626; Phone: (714) 668-0880.
If you must stay along PCH, may I also suggest Salt Creek Grille in Dana Point, where the Pork Chops are absolutely divine. So, is the Mac N Cheese side dish.
Hope that helps, Nancy

You’re truly in luck that those places are unavailable….
Try Zoolu Café (mostly seafood, but AWESOME veal chop and excellent filet)
Tabu Grill- everything is good
Both in Laguna, and two of my favorites right now.
