The White House To get an authentic taste of Laguna Beach guests absolutely must stop into The White House. Opened in 1918, The White House is the first and longest-running restaurant in town. But, just because it's been around forever doesn't mean it's old and stuffy. Over the years the restaurant has gone through many updates including to both its menus and its entertainment. Nowadays guests can expect to dine on apps like jumbo artichoke topped with herbs and balsamic vinaigrette, ahi tuna sandwiches with grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and jalapeno tartar sauce, as well as cajun crab cakes with creole tartar sauce, rice pilaf, and vegetables. Before or after dinner guests can head to the restaurant's cocktail lounge and test out a few unconventional cocktails such as The Admiral, made with Bulleit Rye, muddled strawberries, club soda and a splash of 7UP, or The Roosevelt with Tanquery Gin, St. Germain and grapefruit juice with a dash of agave and topped with basil. Check the bar's website for an updated list of live entertainment as well.
