We have only one night in Laguna Beach, first time, looking for interesting restaurant with good food and relaxed, but not downscale atmosphere. Some recommendations I have are Five Feet, Ti Amo and Sorrento Grille. Our preference is for imaginative seafood and somewhere they know what to do with vegetables besides mashed potatoes! 230 Forest looks interesting but seems to advertise as the "IN" place. So I am not sure what to make of that. We will have just been in LA where we expect to find some local excellent Mexican food, so not necessarily looking for that for our one night in Laguna.
Anyone with any recs for the above or other suggestions welcome.
