I am a Seattle Chowhounder who will be spending the holidays with my family at the Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach.
We are looking for some restaraunt options during our stay. There will be six of us dining at each meal. Half of us are real "foodies". Of the other half, two are into trendy, hip restaurants and the other one is a very picky meat and potatoes type eater. Given that criteria we are looking for:
1. Christmas Eve dinner. We are hoping to find the traditional meal of roast beef, yorkshire pudding etc.
2. Brunch the day after Christmas.
3. A couple of nice "regular" dinner and breakfast places.
I would like to hear what you Chowhounders have to say about a couple of places that others have recommended to us: Splashes at the place we are staying, Ti Amo Ristorante, The Bungalow, The Ritz Carlton at Laguna Niguel, The Cottage, The White House.
I realize this is a lot to request, and I thank you in advance for any opinions you offer.
