Stonehill Tavern at St. Regis Monarch Beach

I was writing a lot about Laguna this week, including this deal on a new prix fixe menu at Michael Mina's restaurant at the St. Regis Monarch Beach, Stonehill Tavern.

For $39, you get three courses. The menu is different each night of the week, so they have to play it safe with classic, easy dishes, but it still sounds pretty fab, and the setting is supposed to be magnificent.

As I drive past it on the 1 tomorrow, I will give it a sad salute, and try to plan a meal there in the future!
