This week on Out To Lunch, we visit Watermarc Restaurant in Laguna Beach for some off-the-charts gourmet burgers and fries.

When Don tells you that he’s taking you for a “light lunch” it’s a good idea to give thought to what he considers a “light lunch.” Burgers with toppings like duck confit, brie, caramelized onions, bacon, gorgonzola horseradish cream, and aioli are hardly for the “light” crowd.

With an incredible assortment of well thought out small plates, you don’t have to feel compelled to go crazy like we did. Caprese with burrata, ahi watermelon skewers, smoked bacon wrapped dates, oysters, mussels, and so many more grazing plates are another way to experience the brilliant offerings from Chef de Cuisine Kiel Andersen.

Located at 448 South Coast Highway in Laguna Beach, California, Watermarc is the perfect stop for a business lunch, happy hour (when all burgers are HALF OFF), or for a quick glass of beer or wine. Stick around long enough and you might even recognize a Real Housewife of Orange County. For more information, visit their web site watermarcrestaurant.com
