Ocean at Main

222 Ocean Ave, Laguna Beach, CA 92651, USA

Opened in late 2018, Ocean at Main is new to the Laguna restaurant scene, but already a favorite for California coastal cuisine. Here, chef Craig Strong, who earned a Michelin star during his time at The Langham Huntington hotel in Pasadena, offers a taste of Southern California with dishes like chilled oysters, heirloom tomato and compressed watermelon salad, and pressed organic chicken with farro, broccolini, and carrot puree. Stop by for weekend brunch and, in addition to classic egg dishes, you can try Strong’s hand-tossed pizzas, which come topped with everything from burrata and roasted vegetables to chipotle chicken and house-made turkey Bolognese sausage.
