Having earned several accolades since its opening in 2013, Trick Dog was a semi-finalist for the James Beard Foundation Award for an Outstanding Bar Program in 2014 and 2016, and a finalist for the prestigious award in 2015 and 2018. Making a special appearance at Las Brisas, Baird brings his talents to Laguna Beach, crafting holiday-themed cocktails available for one-night only.

A significant Southern California landmark perched above the scenic Laguna Beach coastline, Las Brisas provides a premier dining destination for locals and visitors alike. The iconic restaurant stories a strong sense of history—originally built as the world-class eatery and celebrity getaway Victor Hugo Inn in 1938, the breezy retreat overlooking the Pacific debuted as Las Brisas in 1979. Matching the property’s stunning views, innovative sea-to-table culinary programming delivers bold, traditional Mexican flavors captured through a lens of fresh Californian ingredients. The ambience maintains a timeless charm, while its newly revamped menu and thoughtful redesign evolve with the times, keeping longstanding community and ecological initiatives as a priority. Despite its 400-seat capacity, Las Brisas embraces an intimate atmosphere and invites any special occasion with heart-driven hospitality, whether enjoying nightly dinners, Sunday brunch with friends, or a festive celebration with family. As a locally operated establishment, the warm and attentive staff balance the classically refined feel, offering an approachable neighborhood spot with unparalleled guest experiences.
