Laguna Beach is the quintessential sophisticated beach town with its upscale restaurants, carefully curated boutiques and proliferation of fine art. And a city with such good taste also boasts a discerning palate. From March 7-10, Laguna will celebrate the 3rd annual Laguna Beach a la Carte®—A Food & Wine Experience. Participants will enjoy four days of special restaurant offers, daily events, chef & winemaker dinners, educational seminars, prix fixe menus and more.

Located near many of the event locations and just one block from the beach and beautiful Heisler Park, Laguna Cliffs Inn is a peaceful retreat with proximity to the best of Laguna.
