African in Laguna Beach

Macaws and toucans welcome you to this trendy, sophisticated, three-level ode to exotically spiced dishes from southern Africa – peri-peri prawns, chicken pops, grilled pineapple to soaring steaks and seafood, in small plates to pricey surf and turf ($68). Who knows, you might see a Real Housewives cast member hiding out in the rooftop bar.

There's live music nightly; Sunday reggae gets jammed.
