Las Brisas Sunset Celebration Menu

We dined as a guest of the venue

We have some exciting news about Las Brisas in Laguna Beach. The restaurant recently unveiled their new Seaside Cantina, and it’s a beautiful, sparkling gem!

Our first impression had us feeling like we were on vacation as the airy, bright, modern and sleek decor enveloped us. Discovering a breathtaking new bar made of Koa wood surrounded by comfortable high back chairs and a beautiful back lit glass case filled with an impressive variety of tequilas.

Chef Johannes has created a new “Sunset Celebration Menu,” and we love the beauty and playfulness of the dishes. His creativity in the kitchen is welcome; combining traditional flavors with new progressive ones, while continuing to surprise us. We enjoyed exploring the menu to find our favorites!

A Mexican Shrimp Cocktail was up first with an abundance of delicious shrimp, charred cocktail sauce, cucumber, avocado, crispy garlic and sprinkled with black volcanic salt.

Sipping on an icy margarita, acoustic guitar playing in the background, and a Nueske Bacon Slider arrived at our table. Mmm, hearty slices of bacon nestled in a fried, steamed bun topped with chimichurri, a chipotle aioli, and pickled onions; you’ll want more than one.

You’ll find Chicken Oysters with a charred tomato jam is incredible! A stacked fresh Guacamole with splashes of tomatoes and red onion; an all time favorite with this crowd.

Take a peek at the Pomegranate Goat Cheese Tacos too! A rice paper shell overflowing with goat cheese, kale, granny smith apples, quinoa, spiced pepitas then sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. Now, this is what we love about the creative dishes at Las Brisas! No fear in introducing food that is wildly creative and invites all of us to explore more.

The pearl of the evening goes to the Hamachi Sashimi! This dish is so visually stunning you’ll want a photo. The hamachi melted in our mouths while tasting hints of grapefruit, pickled carrots, serrano peppers, black sea salt and a finger lime. Wow! Fresh, sweet, tart, a bit of heat and gorgeous!

It’s summertime, plan an afternoon or evening to surround you in the beauty of the new makeover of Las Brisas. Indulge in the new Sunset Celebration Menu while breathing in the lovely ocean views. We all need those good summer vibes; we think you’ll find them here.
