This Laguna Beach establishment is part gourmet pantry (a must-stop for your every picnic need) and part global dining adventure. Iranian-born chef Azmin Ghahreman takes you on a journey through Europe and Asia with dishes ranging from a pork shank cassoulet to Jamaican curried black cod. More than a dozen beers from around the world and a fittingly eclectic wine list round out the experience. The dining room is intimate and earthy, but infused with local style. Brunch is a favorite with locals, as well—enjoy it on the patio in good weather.
