You probably don’t think of Coyote Grill as a place for fusion cuisine but, in fact, it serves not only the advertised Baja Style, but also Tex-Mex, Caribbean and good old American favorites. As best we can discover, Baja Style is defined by the fish taco. Mexicans living in coastal areas have probably been eating fish tacos since the year 1, but the port city of Ensenada claims to be the birthplace of this legendary fast food with the opening of the first taco stand in the Mercado Negro in 1958.

It?s a beautiful sunny day in Laguna and we?re going to have lunch with the youngest chef in France to receive two stars from the Michelin guide ? no, not at the Montage but at the Beachcomber in Crystal Cove. At first this may seem unlikely, but restaurateur (chief executive and founder of Ruby?s and the Beachcomber) Doug Cavannaugh is a Francophile and during his travels in France met Edouard Loubet at his restaurant in Provence. Cavannaugh was totally charmed by this young chef?

242 Café Fusion Sushi is a tiny treasure on an inconspicuous stretch of Coast Highway down the block from the art museum. This little bistro looks like a mixture of a Huntington Beach surfer joint, a 60's Greenwich Village coffee house and a Tokyo back-street sushi bar. With only 22 seats, 10 at the sushi counter and the rest at small tables made out of skim boards painted with beach scenes, the room is informal. The walls are adorned with mixed-media art pieces, mostly works by chef/owner Miki Izumisawa.

The swinging singles sushi scene is happening at Mosun. When did sushi become so hip? It once was the quintessence of the Japanese esthetic: subtle, elegant and refined. Now, hamachi is hip, sashimi swings and bluefin is rockin'. Young people pack the bar like sardines, TV screens have replaced Ukiyo-e on the walls and speakers blaring loud music are buried everywhere in faux beams in the ceiling. The very dramatic red and black contemporary Asian/fusion décor features the de rigeur fish tank, a long sushi bar, a theatrical waterfall and a bridge surmounted with a giant boulder that crosses over a pond separating the bar from the dining room.
