Chef Craig Strong Introduces New Summer Menu at Ocean at Main

Michelin-starred Chef Craig Strong has unveiled a new menu at his restaurant Ocean at Main. Inspired by his recent travels through Italy, Greece, and Croatia, Strong’s new summer dishes mark the first major menu overhaul since the restaurant opened in October 2018.

Strong’s new menu delivers the richness of European fare through Spanish chorizo and housemade pasta with a contrast of refreshing seasonal ingredients like English peas, rhubarb, and watermelon. With vibrant, geometric pops of color, Strong’s dishes visually resemble the Gaudí-adorned streets of Barcelona where you’ll find a convergence of classic technique and modern design.

While staples like Strong’s Oxtail Kale Risotto and Roasted Beet Salad remain, Ocean at Main’s new summer menu includes the following new dishes:

Crab and Melon Salad - Dungeness crab, vanilla aioli, cantaloupe, honeydew, daikon radish, honey vinaigrette

Watermelon Heirloom Tomato Salad - watermelon, cucumber, tomato, jicama, gazpacho

Summer Cavatelli - cherry tomato, English peas, pea tendrils, brodo, sugar snap peas, chorizo

Corn Ravioli with Lobster - lobster, corn, truffle butter, brown butter crumble, lime cream, lime zest

Halibut - saffron couscous, rhubarb, buttermilk sauce, tarragon oil, asparagus, almond

Scallops - sunchoke, cordycep, kumquat, chicken jus

Lamb Chop and Croquette - lamb, haricot vert, fava bean, maitake mushroom, mustard frill

Grilled Una Salmon - artichokes, squash blossom, fennel salad, bouillabaisse

Charred Garden Pizza - burrata, arugula, fennel, cauliflower, onion, black garlic

Pastry Chef Keara Wilson’s new dessert menu featuring dishes like Dulcey Panna Cotta shows off summer strawberries while a vegan Coconut Pavlova gives a taste of the tropics with passion fruit, guava, and coconut.

Ocean at Main is located in the heart of downtown Laguna Beach (222 Ocean Ave) and is open for lunch and dinner daily from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m., and for weekend brunch from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. For more information, please visit www.oceanatmain.com or connect with @oceanatmain on Instagram and Facebook.
