Chef Craig Strong, after serving nine years as executive chef at award-winning Studio restaurant, is opening and cheffing his own restaurant, Ocean at Main, in downtown Laguna Beach. Located at 222 Ocean Avenue near Main Beach, Ocean at Main is open daily for lunch and dinner.
He will serve chef-driven, seasonally changing dishes that highlight pristine ingredients – paying tribute to his French mentors like Paul Bocuse, with a slightly “lighter hand.” California’s diverse, fresh products and healthy lifestyle choices will be reflected on the menu, offering just-caught seafood and other mains, along with an emphasis on straight-from-the-farm vegetables. The menu will include flat breads – making use of the kitchen’s existing pizza oven. Crafted cocktail, beer and wine lists will celebrate local talents and resources.
