It seems that summer has finally arrived and so have the tourists and the traffic. However, summer also brings the pleasures of alfresco dining. One of the nicer spots in town to have an airy repast or a breezy beverage is the Shebeen, the upstairs lounge at Mozambique. Climbing the stairs, you enter the lounge through the bar area where the scene begins early and live music adds to the merriment. The L-shaped Shebeen is really a large outdoor terrace with banquettes along the walls, tile floors and an adobe fireplace.

In the 1920s, when the road to Laguna was just a dirt lane, Slim Summerville, a Hollywood actor, built a getaway beach house on the sand at Sleepy Hollow, where he eventually retired and spent the rest of his days. That cottage still exists today and is aptly named the Beach House. Slim was a member of the Keystone cops and a featured player in "All Quiet on the Western Front," "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" and "Tobacco Road." He was also a director, a writer and an occasional ghost.

DINING OUT When Michael Kang launched his unique restaurant on Glenneyre Street Downtown circa 1985 he introduced to Laguna Beach an exciting new concept in dining. The idea of presenting elegant dishes against a rough hewn setting was totally innovative. But with his architectural background and penchant for creative cooking, Five Feet featuring "California Chinese" cuisine, was meticulously conceived. I well recall him explaining, as I watched his construction of the interior in those early days, that the name was inspired by the position of the building five feet above sea level and by his personal and family statures.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT The waiter appears at your table and you drop the menu to pay close attention as the daily specials are announced. Will you follow his or her lead and live dangerously, or will you play it safe with something from the menu you've had before? Chances are, you'll return to the menu if you're dining with an important client or trying to impress a date and don't want to expose your lack of culinary savoir faire. Help for the gastronomically challenged appears in this Cliffs Notes for diners, "Everything You Pretend to Know About Food, and Are Afraid Someone Will Ask" by Nancy Rommelmann.

Glori Fickling Scott Savoy launched Dexter's Unique Cuisine almost 10 years ago and has been garnering a plethora of published accolades ever since. Walls inside the restroom are testimonial to some of these reviews and photos. The words of one hometown customer on his initial foray here said it well, "This is a true Laguna Beach dining experience -- watching the chef cooking while sharing stories of our town with locals and visitors." The tiny boutique restaurant, nestled in an offbeat Coast Highway location south of town, opens past a trio of inviting sidewalk tables.

DINING OUT When it comes to elegant dining, French 75 Bistro and Champagne Bar is a pinnacle of the Orange County restaurant scene. This is not French cuisine, as the name seems to imply. The concept, as esteemed general manager Phil Roberson says, is "An American view of French restaurants circa World War II." A highlight of famed Laguna Beach Art Center in the heart of town, French 75 was launched on St. Patrick's Day, 1998 and is the flagship venue of David Wilhelm's renowned Culinary Adventures, which caters such local charitable events as those at the Laguna Art Museum.

Many locals have probably never eaten at one of the best restaurants in town. Woody's has a cozy atmosphere, reasonable prices and very tasty food. The service is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive but not intrusive. People may be intimidated by its famous gay bar scene on the weekends, but it doesn't seem at all like a private club during the week or for an early dinner anytime. Chef Jonathan Hubbard says, "I like to feel special when I go out somewhere, and my customers should feel special too."
