Executive chef Thomas Crijns of Brussels Bistro teams up with fellow Belgian Philippe De Smedt and French restaurateur Thierry Perreau to give his seasonally inspired menu of Belgian-style cuisine a French twist, earning the restaurant recognition as one of the 2012 Top 10 Orange County Bistro Restaurants in Gayot and named Best French Fries in 2008 in OC Weekly for their signature side with dipping sauces. With live jazz music each Tuesday through Thursday and DJs spinning music under pulsing colored lights Fridays and Saturdays, it is not surprising that OpenTable also took notice of the spot and awarded Brussels Bistro the Diners Choice for Late Night Find.
While known for its late night offerings, Brussels Bistro features a menu of lunch fare including quiche Lorraine packed with gruyere cheese, tomatoes, and bacon and savory ham-and-cheese crepes. Diners may opt to share their bountiful pots of mussels and Belgian-style fries on the sunny outdoor terrace while sipping one of nine Belgian beers on tap or 15 bottled varieties each served with a signature glass etched with its family tree.
Housed in a historical home, The Cottage Restaurant has charmed diners for the past 35 years with a garden view overlooking the Laguna surf and a menu of elegant breakfast and supper fare. More than 30 egg creations, such as eggs florentine ($13.75) and a chicken-fajita omelette ($11.25), conquer morning plates, and chefs toy with fresh ingredients, traditional recipes, and ancient sorcery to create stacks of homemade pancakes bedecked in a spectrum of flavors, including cranberry orange ($6.30 for four) and blueberry buckwheat ($8.30 for four). Lunchtime feasters can indulge in charbroiled salmon resting on a bed of rice and crisp vegetables ($10.25), or mouth-dive into a french dip sandwich nurtured by tender roast beef ribbons and swaddled with savory au jus ($10.25). Dinner commences with crispy bruschetta ($7.25) or succulent salmon and crab cakes ($8.95) before waiters parade to tables armed with a slew of fresh salads, pastas, and giant inflatable Snoopys.
The Beach House in Laguna Beach lucked out when it came to ghosts: the seafood restaurant is purportedly haunted by Slim Summerville, a comedic film actor who once made the eatery's 1920s building his home. Though Slim took on a serious part in All Quiet on the Western Front, he was best recognized for his funny portrayals in short silent movies. His upbeat character still lingers in The Beach House's halls, which have retained some of his house's original furnishings and woodwork, as well as a striking view of the Pacific Ocean.
Today, diners can drink in the shoreline scenery from inside the dining room or on a heated patio. Executive Chef Michael Ingino complements the beachy locale with breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes that feature contemporary seafood. A morning helping of crab-cakes benedict can lead into an evening plate of alaskan-king-crab legs, or other dinner entrees such as lobster thermidor, blackened pork chops, or pepper-crusted hawaiian yellowfin tuna. The Beach House is also connected to The Deck on Laguna Beach, where guests can sip citrusy martinis and blow raspberries at the waves attempting futilely to reach their feet.
