That world-renowned Parisian restaurant, Café du Grand Boeuf, is now serving dinner at the Laguna Playhouse. Unfortunately, it is only dinner for one. Victor Bullard is a fabulously wealthy gentleman who created the restaurant for his own pleasure and who, even more unfortunately, has decided to starve himself to death as the result of an unhappy love affair. All the while, he (and the audience) are being tempted by his loyal staff with mouth-watering descriptions of an elegant gourmet seven-course menu.

Everybody seems to be curious about the new incarnation of the old Eiler?s Inn. After a serious face lift that transformed a funky B&B into a hip boutique hotel called SEVEN4ONE, passersby have been peeking into tinted windows to get a glimpse of what?s up. Co-owner Brent Eneix says he?s more than happy to invite people in for a mini-tour of his new venture. We took the tour a few weeks ago and were delighted with the sleek, clean lines and urbane ambience of this 12-room, eco-friendly establishment.

Glori Fickling In addition to a tropical lanai patio welcoming guests as they saunter down the stairs to the entry, Laguna's popular Beach House offers four other inviting dining areas. Walk past the cozy cocktail lounge and discover two interior rooms posed high above the sandy beach. The view from a surrounding perimeter deck, now festively strung with sparkling Christmas lights, often reaches clear to romantic Catalina Island. Once the vacation home of old time motion picture actor/comedian Slim Sommerville, this fascinating vintage beach cottage offers much more than inviting ambience.

Glori Fickling More akin to a private country club than an ordinary restaurant, Canyon Lodge and American Grill, proudly perched atop Aliso Creek Inn, overlooks the sprawling greenery of its own private golf course. Dating back to the '50s when it was known as Ben Brown's, the place has continued through a trio of reconstruction stages under direction of original owner, Violet Brown, who has astutely managed the place since the death of the property's original namesake, her late husband Ben Brown.

DINING OUT The happy news for devotees of the Vertical Wine Bar Restaurant on Forest Avenue's Restaurant Row is the added attraction of weekend brunch to their unique bill of fare. It's unique because when this unusual establishment was launched, creative owner/chef Jonathan Pflueger introduced to Laguna Beach a novel concept in gourmet dining. In his words, "a new menu every night progressively designed like a wine list from lightest to richest ... vertically."

Did you know that the White House is the oldest restaurant in Orange County, and has been open continuously since 1918? Like many other spots in Laguna, it used to be a popular hangout for the old Hollywood set. Today it's a hangout for the young O.C. set who spill out of the doors and line the street on Friday and Saturday nights to listen to live music and party hearty. So, if it's a quiet dinner you're seeking, perhaps you should go elsewhere on weekend evenings. The rest of the time, because the bar is a separate room and the live music is not too rowdy, it's a perfectly pleasant, moderately priced place to dine for brunch, lunch or dinner.

Commencing with attractively hospitable ambience, which beckoned to locals when the Ayres family launched their handsome French Normandy style restaurant in October of 1988, this charming venue is equally accessible to those driving from out of town.
