Official statement on the closure of Ocean at Main from Chef Craig Strong:
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the last day of service for Ocean at Main will be Wednesday, February 5. Since 2018, we have loved serving and connecting with the Laguna Beach community. Ocean at Main has been the adventure of a lifetime, and we are honored to have served so many wonderful guests, created lifelong friendships and hosted so many memorable celebrations. We are wholeheartedly grateful for our hardworking staff who brought this place to life and for our guests and regulars who called our restaurant home. As a Laguna Beach local, it breaks my heart to see the challenges the restaurant community faces in Laguna Beach – and across California. With rising costs of rent and labor, we, along with many other restaurants, have experienced this incredible challenge.
When one door closes, another opens. We are actively looking for another location and I look forward to serving you again soon.
